Isolation Reads

I’m getting a little bit more reading done these days but certainly watching more movies. Zombie Land followed by Shakespeare in Love, then Deadpool 1 & 2, finishing up with The Martian. This might be a good time to watch a long series. But are you stuck at home with no Netflix and no new books to read? Most public libraries have ebook lending processes. Check it out. And maybe read a few of these great plague books. Continue reading “Isolation Reads”

March Tweet What You Read

This whole staying home thing has some problems that I am working out. The first one is that my beloved husband is home and I need to make him aware of the times when I am writing so he doesn’t start reading things off the internet to me. Another is making sure I have enough birdseed to last a while. Luckily the pet stores are open for a short time every day. And certain birds are sure that since both humans are home, we will want to have them out with us. But the best thing is that, as soon as all the cages are cleaned, everyone has fresh food and water, and all my writing deadlines are met, there’s time to read.

September Tweet What You Read

Thanks to my favorite Regency Romance author and my favorite husband, I have read a lot of romance over the last few months. And thanks to my science fiction and fantasy book club, I read some things I would not have picked up otherwise. There has been a dearth of movies, however, so there’s that. And not that many books, all told. Let’s get to it. Continue reading “September Tweet What You Read”

August Tweet What You Read

The weather is so hot in my part of the world that I have to read indoors. Otherwise, the books catch fire! Ha! I crack me up. But seriously, I have had the doors closed and the fans on and maybe one light to keep things cool. The mornings are pretty good for getting yard work done but as soon as my shoulders start to blister, I head inside and write and read. Let’s get on to the cool stuff. Continue reading “August Tweet What You Read”

May Tweet What You Read

This is the post that should have gone up on Sunday. I run myself ragged and can’t always meet my deadlines. Guess that makes me a real, honest writer. As Douglas Adams said, I love deadlines. I love the whooshing noise they make as they go by. Let’s just jump into the books and the one movie for April through May. So far.

No Wonder Lydia Bennet Eloped

Just finishing up listening to Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice (If you haven’t read this and you love Romance, please do yourself a favor and read or listen to it unabridged) and sat in on a group of Regency writers who discussed the choices women had in the days of balls and social strictures. Women in the Regency era had few avenues to take to independence. Pride and Prejudice certainly touches a lot of points where things have gone terribly wrong or where things worked out.
