What I'm Reading
You know, sometimes it's feast or famine with me and reading. I can read several books all at once, or nothing for weeks. While my reading hasn't been exactly blazing along lately, neither has it ground to a halt. So I guess that's something.
Didn't make any more progress on The Cobweb Bride by Vera Nazarian, but that's my own fault for not firing up my Kindle.
So needless to say, I have not yet returned to Mr. Love by Sally Mason, either.
Nor have I found Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. I've pretty much given up on finding it again. Some day, I'm sure, I'll stumble across it, but it'll probably be far into the future.
I kind of got bogged down in The Mammoth Book of Time Travel Romance - Twenty Stories of Timeless True Love. You know how with an anthology you always have stories you love and stories that you don't quite love as much? I'm at one of those stories where it doesn't quite engage me as much as the others, so it's slowed me right down. A smart person would just skip over it and go on to the next one, but no one's ever accused me of being overly smart. ;-)
I'm not sure what prompted me to do it, but I was in the guest room this week and I started looking through the books in the bookcase in there. I chanced upon Hunting the Corrigan's Blood by Holly Lisle, and the next thing you know I'm three chapters into it. I bought it used a few years ago and I have no idea why I haven't read it before. It's a science fiction/adventure, which is different from the other books I've read of Ms. Lisle's, and I'm quite enjoying it so far.
I'm still plugging away at Sword and Sorceress III and have another couple of stories under my belt.
And don't forget . . . there's still time to enter the Goodreads Contest for a chance to win one of five copies of Alex Westhaven's Sprouted. The contest ends on March 7, so enter now!
How does your garden grow? Amelia has a secret for growing the prettiest flowers and the biggest veggies, but she's getting older. Will her secret be lost before she finds someone who can handle the intricate nature of her legacy?
Trust me, you'll never look at a Chia Pet the same way again!
