Not a lot, taking advantage of Sister's cable TV, and crocheting.
A lot of crocheting.
We've had our toad for the 2020s, it's got to get better from here!

Just did a quick sprint through the 3 Piper J. Drake (aka PJSchnyder ) Safeguard Novels

Hidden Impact

Deadly Testimony

Contracted Defense


I would include links to Amazon, but Amazon is giving off weird links because I own the books already.

I am about to revisit her Triton Experiment series under her PJ Schnyder pen... I have read a sample of Hunting Kat, but hadn't realized I didn't pick up the full book. That has been fixed.
Sanity has Left The Building.
Please Contact Patti L. for further instructions.

Just finished City of Dark Magic by Magnus Flyte. Alchemy, time travel, mysteries, Nazis and Soviet agents scratch the surface of this story set in Prague.

Am now working my way through Wool by Hugh Howey. I'll let you know what it is about when I figure it out.

Wool is great but grim. I read the final book in the series as well. Very well done.

Finished Lake Silence, started Tricks For Free. After that, back to my new cache of Diana Wynne Jones.

Was pleasantly surprised by that one, but still have to read the rest...  :-[

Which DWJ are you reading/about to read?  I finally got through an audio of "House of Many Doors"; I think the only middle grade or older of hers I haven't finished is "Black Maria/Aunt Maria".

I have started Enchanted Glass and also have Eight Days of Luke in hand. I think The Game or Black Maria has just arrived but haven't had a chance to open it. The originally titled edition of Aunt Maria is currently going for nearly a thousand dollars. I decided I didn't need it badly enough.*

*That is an example of understatement.

Finished Wool, a distopian story where the world is not saved by teenagers. I want to know what is happening in the other silos.

I didn't read the middle book, which has a bunch of backstory, but did read the third. It's a good series.

I've finished Mamvish's "ordeal" story, which is really her childhood, from Diane Duane's Young Wizards Interim Errantry, and re-read of The Amazing Mrs. Pollifax, and started "The Big Meow" which is the same ficton from Diane Duane, but it's her cat wizards instead.

@Janilee: Not that the world seems terribly saved by the end of Wool.

Reading some Bond again, the "For your eyes only" story collection.
I find that book Bond can be at times charmingly inept. :)

Also started a Donna Alward Romance on my eReader, "Hired: The Italian's Bride".

I read the KSR. Food for thought.
