So it is Y already in the A to Z challenge. I think I’ve missed most of this challenge. Well, that is what it is.
Maybe next year will be better.
But maybe not. I can’t seem to finish Necessity’s Child – I keep getting distracted. I am starting to suspect I am just not that into it. If I was, I suspect I would have finished by now. I will give it the rest of this week and if I still can’t into it, well, than I won’t be finishing it.
In other news, my erotica novelette is proceeding slowly. Very slowly, but I have hope.
I logged into the WordPress for the first time in a long time yesterday to discover there is a new Twenty Thirteen theme and I have decided to try it out. I had Twenty Eleven before. I am not sure I’ll be keeping this one.
I discovered the Open Library recently. It’s online, you can register there and borrow books. Not just the classics, either, though I believe most classics are there.
Open Library has books by such as writers and David Weber, Anne Bishop and Lois McMaster Bujold. Only catch is, for most of the recent books, you have to get some sort of key from the Library of Congress. Which you get only if you have some sort of vision problem or reading disability. I don’t have problems like that, so I can’t get this key. But for someone who does, I imagine this library would be fantastic.
But! Some of the books are available to anyone who registers. The only one I’ve downloaded so far is Daughter of the Blood by Anne Bishop. It’s not bad. I downloaded a epub version, but the pdf might have been better. The epub was full of formatting errors. But it was readable, so I am not complaining. If I found a book I could take out and loved, this would be perfect. Perfect!!
Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
Yes, I chose to start Necessity’s Child yesterday exactly because the title starts with N and I needed an N post. Also, this book has been on my TBR list for a couple of weeks now and I figure it’s time to move the book to the top of the pile. It’s Liaden Universe book, which are usually fun.
Just have to say – everyone at the Boston Marathon, stay safe.
This is one of the most popular marathons ever and I have to say: people suck. People who would explode bombs where there are guaranteed to be thousands and thousands of people. Really! I don’t understand at all why anyone would do that. On purpose.
Okay, terrorists, yeah, but I don’t understand a terrorists’ mind. I am not sure I want to. Anyway, I don’t even know if they know who did it. Some form of terrorists’ seems a reasonable guess. But that leaves a fairly big field, I think.
Also: I am muddled.
Having missed two letters (K, L) due to technical issues, I don’t know if I should stop with the A to Z challenge. I am missing two letters from the beginning (A, B) so I really don’t know now. If nothing else happens between now and Z, I will be missing four letters. I probably have time to make up two letters, but not four.
