I’m reading WAY too much political news lately on Twitter. It’s like an accident you drive by: you don’t really want to look…it doesn’t make you feel good to look…but yet, you just can’t help it. But it’s actually worse than that. The state of affairs is such that I have the feeling that I […]Read More Mitigating “Trump Fatigue Syndrome”
I just realized that I’m actually reading 7 books right now (well, one of those 7 is actually a collection of e-shorts…but I’m counting that as one.) Reading multiple books at a time is normal for me, I admit. I tend to need my reading material to be as flexible and changeable as my moods […]Read More The 7 Books I’m Reading Right Now

It’s time, I think, for another “Lists of 5” post – if only because I have time on my hands tonight, and I find that I’m in the mood! I do have fun with these – but more than that, they’re personally interesting to me because I find I can tell a lot about myself […]Read More Lists of 5: Round Four
1. 2. Big, thick fantasy novels that take you to another world and force you to stay there for a while (because they’re slow-paced…in a good way.) I’m an extremely fast reader, and I’m finding it unusually soothing to be forced to slow down this way. I just finished Jennifer Roberson’s Lady of the Forest […]Read More 3 Random Things I’m Loving Right Now
