As of today, the contest to win an autographed book is back up and running. All you need to do to enter is comment, and you’re in. Two winners will be drawn at random, notified, and announced on this blog a week from today.
I spent a very quiet weekend, reading, resting, and playing my current favorite casino app, DoubleUp.
It’s been a while since I’ve updated you on what I’m reading, so here’s a partial list: ANNA AND THE SWALLOW MAN was very good, and I’ve been gobbling up psychological thrillers by a British author named Rachel Abbott. Good stuff that holds my attention–not easy, with ADD a factor–though a bit gory in places. Also NOTES FROM A SMALL ISLAND and THE ROAD TO LITTLE DRIBBLING, by Bill Bryson. I especially enjoyed these nonfiction commentaries on Bryson’s travels in my beloved England; I spent a lot of time in London when I was younger. The books are funny, and they bring back a lot of good memories.
Next up on the travel docket, a road trip toward the end of the month. Wendy and I will be joining in a joint-birthday celebration for good friends, Jess Walton (The Young and the Restless) and her husband, John. I met them in Dodge City, Kansas, at the 60th anniversary celebration of GUNSMOKE, and we hit it off immediately. I’ll post a picture of Jess and me when Jenni can help me. Unfortunately, I’m still a technophobe, much as I love gadgets of any kind.
Well, as usual, I have miles to go before I sleep. I’ll close out this entry and wait to hear what you’re reading and loving right now. The best books, I’ve found, are those recommended by friends.
