it may be rainy, and a Monday... that doesn't mean we can't enjoy it! except for the dreary clouds, the wet rain (is there any other kind, but wet?) and the achy bones and muscles. But I did get a lot of reading done!
This is most likely why I'm not getting into the current reads. I've read four of the Jill Kismet series,** back to back - taking time out only to review Redemption Alley. Other than that review, I seriously went from the ending of one to the next. The only problem I had with this type of marathon reading is finding a couple of phrases or descriptions repeated in a couple of the books, but really - compared to the enjoyment factor that's small, even micro potatoes, right? Yep!
I believe I've just talked myself out of my current reads....nah - I'm going to concentrate on the Kris Longknife novel, even if it is the third. There's not a lot of info-dumping going on, so that's all good.
I found this pic on this page, is themed as a psych case study - go read it, it's pretty good
**a little grandchild note here - look at the covers of the Jill Kismet novels, and you'll see that Jill is represented with lines and a very white face, body. I noticed on the back of one of my Kismet novels, that Jills face had suddenly became very.....tanned. Her face was carefully colored in with a light brown marker....Since my grandson was the only person under 18 around the house this weekend, I asked him. He's three years old, by the way.
Me - Elliott, did you happen to color on grandma's book?
Elliott - yes. I made her pretty for you.
Me-....umm, thanks. (it was a pretty good job for a three year old - he stayed in the lines.) Oh boy! At least he did it for me, right? :)
