Currently Reading: Nicholas and Alexandra, by Robert K Massie. I'm up to chapter 3. I'm also reading My Sister's Keeper, by Jodi Picoult. I'm on part 2...the chapters are broken into sections, day by day, starting on Monday. I'm on the 2nd chapter on Tuesday, if this makes any sense.

E-Book: Djinni and the Geek, by Cindy Spencer Pape. Holy cow...I had to force myself to stop reading! I figured, read a chapter or two, go hit the shower and come back later. I was on the 1st page of chapter 4 when I realized if I didn't stop, I was going to severely piss off everyone who wanted the computer! So if I find a lull in the computer usage this afternoon, I'll read some more. So far, I'm lovin' it!

I'm posting this earlier than usual, because 1) we were hit with an ice-sleet-snow mix last night and the kids have no school, so my computer time will be limited this afternoon and 2) I'm going to be lurking at the Ellora's Cave chat tonight and maybe even putting in my 2 cent's worth at whatever AJ, Anny, and whoever else shows up tonight has to say. Plus, being sick for the past week has thrown my family into a tizzy, as clothing hasn't been washed on a regular basis, and people are running out of socks. Not my toddler...remember I bought him 10 new pairs? So far he's been able to avoid wearing them. Score 1 for the toddler who's finally kept the same pair on his feet all day; score 0 for the dryer gnomes who eat them....

My website turns 1 year old this coming week, so I thought I'd honor it by having a scavenger hunt. Blame Anny for this...I got the idea from her, plus the various contests I've tried unsuccessfully to win. I can't play my own game, but I can certainly send you on a merry chase!

So here's the rules: Every day, I'll post a question. The answer can be found on either my website, or this blog, or my Myspace page. All links are to the right. The contest will start today and run through Friday, Feb 29. I'll repost the clues on Friday; collect the answers and send them to with 'Website Contest' in the subject line. I'll throw all the names in a hat and pick a winner.

Wanna know what you're playing for? Of course you do...Free copy of Love Finds a Way, either download or the actual, signed, paperback. Or, if they already own the book, I'll send Love is Sober.

First clue: How many books do I have, either in progress or published? (Looking for a total)

That's it for today. Time to get busy and let the kids take over the internet.

Forgot to mention: I'm also going to be popping in and out over at the Novel Sisterhood tonight, for Member Promotion Madness. I'll be posting a few excerpts, but mostly reading this time...I promoted like mad last month!

Hope your son feels better soon. This has been hanging on for awhile hasn't it?

I see you got the computer back long enough to go to the EC chat. Good to see you.
