Tweet What You Read for July

The heat is on in Southern California and my reading chair is not in the coolest part of the house. At least I have been healthy and have gotten a lot of things in motion during the early, cool part of the day. Like laundry and dishes and such. Now I need to do some writing.

June Tweet What You Read

The weather is crazy. The flu season is now year round. My stress levels are not going down and I want to sleep all the time. That would be fine if I would read in my sleep. If I sit in my favorite chair with a book, I am lucky to get 2 pages read before I’m off into some strange dreamland version of the plot. Actually, I kind of like that.

My excuse for this blog is that I have been sick for 3 weeks and my head isn’t sure where it’s attached right now. If at all. The antibiotics, they do nothing!

No Lines for You!

I read Sense and Sensibility in high school when I had just discovered Jane Austin and couldn’t get enough of her writing. That was many decades ago. Since then, I have watched the 1995 movie version several times. I think that I have a good excuse for not noticing then the differences between book and movie. Now I am listening to an unabridged version and had a bit of a shock when certain characters were introduced. Continue reading “No Lines for You!”
