Currently Reading: Call me crazy, but I picked up one of my dad's old literature texbooks (1952). I'd forgotten the short story, Death of Red Peril, by Walter D. Edmonds and the poem O Captain! My Captain! by Walt Whitman. Jabberwocky (Lewis Carroll) I read in my HS English class; I'm on Meeting with a Tigress by Jim Corbett in the non-fiction section. Coming up is the play Julius Caesar, and a section Anny will appreciate, King Arthur (there are 4 stories, but I'll bet none of them are like hers!) and Silas Marner by George Eliot, which I only read a part of in HS.
E-book: Lucifer's Angel, by Kaenar Langford. Haven't started it yet; I'll probably begin it later today.
I joined two new chat groups today, Fallen Angel Review and Ellora's Cave. I already belong to Indiana Writer's Connection, Love Romance Cafe and Novel Sisterhood, and the days I'm extremely busy, my inbox is loaded with digest mail.
I may have to adjust my settings if the mail starts to pile up, and many other authors are on some of the same loops. I may just lurk for a while, reading excerpts, until I feel confident to join the conversations.
I'm thrilled by the EC group; it means I can let other authors know what I think of their books, and even enter a contest or two. And just from reading some of the excerpts already, my TBB list is now beginning page 3!
Weather-wise, we're supposed to get 5-7 inches of snow tonight. The kids may have a snow day tomorrow, which means I will be fighting for computer time. But I'm definitely going to settle in tomorrow night, when AJ and company take over the FAR group! I hear my list growing again...
Time to get back to work. I'm on chapter 3 of the new wip, so I'm doing well. I'll go back to posting word counts:)
