It's another pointlessly late night* for my sweetie. I scrapped my original dinner plans in lieu of leftover paella and a glass of wine accompanied by re-watching bits of 'Being Human.'

Earlier, I chanced upon my across-the-street neighbor, Randy of the prodigious beard, at the mailboxes. We chatted for a good twenty minutes or so and -in spite of my shyness and blithering -
it was quite nice. Turns out he and his wife tapped a few birches and are boiling the sap down to syrup. I didn't even know you could do any sap other than maple.

Must choose something to read. I'm bogged down in Nancy Werlin's Impossible and I'm not quite sure why. I'll set it aside for a bit and move on to something entirely different. Suggestions, anyone?







*the client that is responsible for the crazy hours of the past month or so has been hilariously ever so accurately voted Most Disorganized Company. something like that. I need a source to be more specific, but ye gads, that made me laugh.

I'm going back through Lackey's Valdemar stuff...for the zillionth time (Thanks Kathy)

if you haven't read "the time traveler's wife" it is amazing...even better on audiotape, no joke. If needed I will mail u the CDs.

I turned out to like Impossible - and I *almost* returned it to the library after about 50 pages because I thought it would be lame. Watch out though - ridiculously silly romance awaits.

I just read "The Last Lecture" and thought it was very very good, and I don't usually go in for that sort of mushy feel good reading.

I'll gladly take you at your word. Truth be told, I'm not entirely averse to silly romance, so it's all good.

And I have an ARC of The Last Lecture (a remnant of my days at B&N), so mayhap I'll give that a go.

Oh, and I do need to PM you with my general info, 'cause a visit would be beyond brilliantly happy. :D

They show the actual Last Lecture at the drop of a hat on the tv around here . . . it's quite good, but suffering from overexposure for me.

And Kelly, how about some Mary Stewart for quality light reading? Nine Coaches Waiting is all kinds of 50's awesome, if you haven't read it.

Mary Stewart is one of my "I really ought to read something by her!" authors. I'll hie me to the library to check out Nine Coaches Waiting. Thanks!

Her books are adorable period mystery/romances. I really enjoy them. Never got into her Merlin books quite as much, but the romances are quite good. Wildfires At Midnight is my next favorite!

I've read In the Woods and loved it. Also loved the sequel....the name of which escapes me.

First of all, I'm still ever so delighted that you are as obsessed as I am.

Secondly, between this and Life On Mars, the BBC really needs to step it up and get us our Region One versions posthaste.

You should check out this community:

Good place to look when you're trying to find something to read. And also to suggest good things you have read.

I'd never heard of birch syrup before now!

Did you read the Gone Away World yet? I have a galley if you want to borrow it.
