Books!

The other day at work, two of my coworkers were discussing some of the (romance) books they were/had been reading. Imagine my surprise when they started saying how they just couldn't read things that made them blush! And the one said she had gotten a Kindle and downloaded a free (romance) book that she ended up deleting because... of whatever was in it! (I almost asked her what the name was, anything that bad has to be good, right? Right!)

I refrained from saying anything too much, don't want to shock the masses, you know, but really, romance books? Too racey? Where have these people been living?

And as I sat and re-read one of Mercedes Lackey's books, I wondered (to myself) just what they would think if they went through my Kindle, which also has some manga on it. And not the gen kind, either.

On another subject, Skyrim is quite entertaining and I'm really glad that I bought it!

I just finished reading "A Presumption of Death" by Jill Paton Walsh and Dorothy L. Sayers.

For those who don't know, Sayers wrote the Lord Peter Wimsey books (among other things) that I read and reread to this day (Anglophile that I am!).

And this book is a marvelous edition to the series!

I just hope that she writes more, it fills in some of the holes left that you always kind of wonder about.

Although now I'm going to have to go read to find out about a couple of characters... because I don't remember what happened to them.
