The days are blurring into each other, which is disorienting and cool. On today’s list – go over copyedited manuscript of TWISTED, pay bills, answer email, research, get hair done, return some stuff to Old Navy, register self and a couple willing victims, I mean family members, for Saturday’s Harborfest 5k. I am not a fast runner, but I am touchingly earnest. I make no time predictions – the goal is to finish without needing medical attention.
I just read the Mayflower by Nathaniel Philbrick. It was good, but not exactly what I was hoping for, because half of the book focused on King Philip’s War, which took place 50 years after the Mayflower landed. I learned a lot of fascinating things about King Philip’s War, but that’s not why I picked up the book. I also read Tim Green’s new book, Kingdom Come. He has a good eye for detail, but a couple plot twists seemed silly, and I really didn’t like the crappy description he gave Pulaski. Right now I am reading Dark Tort, by Diane Mott Davidson. I love this series so much. It’s nice to be back with familiar characters.
Some year I am going to be able to take the summer off and just read, like when I was 11.
