It went by in such a rush!
Had a decent weekend. Didn’t do much of anything Saturday, except read and do laundry. Got a bit further into Don Quixote for the group read coming up at Tilting At Windmills. I like to be ahead because I know I’m going to fall behind! So far it’s not as daunting a read as I was fearing. In fact, I’m finding it quite amusing! I also finished the first story/novella in my Complete Sherlock Holmes Vol 1, A Study in Scarlet. I am finding Holmes to be such a fascinating character! I knew he was smart, obviously, but I had no idea he had such a sense of humor. I read Hound of the Baskervilles in high school, but that was ages ago, so I don’t remember much. And, sad to say, it probably wasn’t as well taught as I would have liked. I am loving this almost as much as I love Wilkie! And that is a lot!
Sunday I decided to pick up something slim that would be a quick, easy read. I dug out my copy of Incantation by Alice Hoffman, which is very slim and very quick. I wouldn’t call it such an easy read though. Typical Hoffman, with mystical influence, but with a heartbreaking story. I will try to write up a proper review, along with Witch Child, soon. That makes 3 books completed for the Once Upon a Time challenge!
I did a little cooking over the weekend too. I got such a craving for fresh bread and butter, so I made some sourdough bread in my bread machine. It was yummmmmmy. And, as I had little groceries, I tried a new recipe for Ginger soup. Look for it on my cooking blog later today (or tomorrow). It was very good too, although I will make a few changes next time I make it.
Don’t forget, new issue of Estella’s Revenge coming out tomorrow! And look for my big surprise (for me anyway!) interview with Joshilyn Jackson, author of gods in Alabama and the soon-to-be-in-paperback, Between, Georgia, and one of my absolute FAVORITE authors. It was such a pleasure to interview her, she’s hilarious. And of course we have lots of other great interviews, articles and reviews!
