Quick note

I am deep in the country house/dog sitting for some friends, armed only with my kindle and a few books.  One of these days I'll get a laptop, but until Monday evening I am PC less. Typing is laborious on a little tablet pad! Alexa refuses to take dictation...what a disgrace she is to helpful AIs everywhere. I have been reading, and am 700 pages in to a novel that is 1000+ pages. Two reviews are ready to roll on Monday. Until then, happy reading..!

    1. Definitely fun! I can see the stars at night. The coyotes are louder, though..

  2. Actually, that sounds pretty great - some dedicated reading time away from a computer. And at 700 pages, sounds like it's working. :) Happy weekend!

    1. It's been a nice break -- yesterday I took a country walk down to a store for lunch. Missed the rain by a half hour!

    2. That's awesome. I am all for nice breaks like that where it is easy to detach from the world.

    1. Well, my kindle allows me to check email and such. Still, my only major distraction has been the new cosmos.

    3. Hah! No, Neil deGrades Tyson did an updated version of Carl Sagan's Cosmos.

Thank you for visiting! Because of some very clever spambots, I've had to start moderating comments more strictly, but they're approved throughout the day.
