Reading, watching Winter Olympics, walking in the rain, sipping hot cocoa with little marshmallows on it, reading blogs, planning for Spring in the garden, quilt planning, chores and errands. The days are packed. How did I ever have time for work?
Restraint continues, just two this time.
A Darkling Sea by James L. Cambias [TOR 2014 hardcover, new] – science fiction. Bought because of reviews read and the teriffic cover by Thom Tenery. This one has human-alien culture collision as it’s primary theme.
Fledgling by Sharon Lee and Steve Miller [Baen Books 2010 mass market paperback, new] – science fiction. I’m enjoying the short story collection Constellation, Vol. 1 by these authors enough to try a novel. This one, though far from the beginning of the Liaden Universe books is, I understand, a good jumping in place.
I’ve been reading between watching the Winter Olympics which end Sunday. Reading will pick up as I watch very little evening television. I finished The Everything Store about Jeff Bezos and Amazon.com, which was interesting. I’m two-thirds through Constellation, Vol. 1 by Sharon Lee and Steve Miller, which is over 500 pages of short stories. Good stuff. Next up after that is Here, There, Everywhere by William Least Heat-Moon, subtitled Stories from the Road a collection of Heat-Moon’s short form travel writing.
I also read a couple of books on conifers from the library, as that is our winter gardening interest of the moment.
What new did you get, what have you been reading?
