Interests Other Than Blogging?

It’s been more than a month since I’ve posted, and I promise, it has nothing to do with lack of inspiration. I’ve started and abandoned more than two dozen posts in the last months, but here’s the truth. I was lazy.

And I was reading. Books. With paper pages.

I read the first part of a family drama called Wild Swan. Then, I got sucked back into Patricia Cornwell's Kay Scarpetta novels, and decided to reread the whole series. That's 16 books from Postmortem to Scarpetta, and it took me all of April and some of my vacation (yes, vacation, and I'll post on that later) to read them. I am now caught up, and awaiting the publication of the next one.

I read Twilight, since so many of my friends and contemporaries were reading it, and against my more intellectual instincts, I was drawn in to the story, and am waiting to acquire the rest of the series.

While I'm waiting, I decided to stick with the young adult theme, and am just finishing up the His Dark Materials series by Philip Pullman. I haven't read like this since before Felix was born. It's been exhilarating, and it's entirely zapped my motivation to blog.

Look for upcoming vacation debriefing, and photos of the beginnings of the new front entryway. And hopefully some light gardening.

Happy Spring, and welcome back!

Glad to see you back! I've missed reading here!!! But I'm also glad you were immersed in books while you were 'gone'. :) Next to yarny pursuits, books are my favorites. samm
