19. Midnight Riot by Ben Aaronovitch 20.  Moon over Soho by Ben Aaronovitch My husband stole these out of my giant-pile-o-Steph's-books and devoured them first.  Then he kept leaving them out places and asking if I'd read them yet.  I took this as a hint that he wanted me to read them so we could … Continue reading books, books, books!

17.  Rude Mechanicals by Kage Baker Yes, I'm on a Kage Baker kick again.  Somehow there's always more of them, which is amazing and wonderful and sad because one day there won't be more that I haven't seen yet.  This one was one of the delightful shorter length books focusing on Joseph and Lewis.  I … Continue reading Books, 2012, one more

Again, not dead

No, I'm not. Really, I promise. I got an iPhone, rarely go near the computer any more, and so blogging has fallen by the wayside, as I'm not entirely proficient with the thumbs-typing-on-small-keyboards thing yet (though I am trying. This for example). So, what've we been up to lately? Lots of stuff, mostly kids, school, … Continue reading Again, not dead

Through the magic of Kindle I went from the panic of ACK!  I need to go to the bookstore!  to  AHHHH.... book in hand.  I do so … Continue reading RA Guy’s Book Club: “How To Be Sick”

I did okay … Continue reading Food, Fitness, & Faith, day, ummm…
