Dear Joared and DKZ
Your blogs kick me out after I comment which is very frustrating. Can't figure out why this is so. Can you figure it out? Other blogs do not do this, much to my relief as I could become quite paranoid.
I've been tossing books lately with a DNF* note in my book journal. I resent the time I spend on them before this act as I could have been reading a good book. Know what I mean?
I'm into fiction in a big way. I like the escapism provided by a good author. Good in my estimation, maybe not in yours.
I persist sometimes when the books are both gifts and best sellers as these last two were.
But finally I just threw in the towel on both and picked up my emergency Michael Connolly who never lets me down when Bosch is involved. And PS I can't abide the actor portraying him in the Bosch series on Prime.
I will update my 2021 Books Read Page soonest as I have enjoyed some smashing reads this year.
And I will mention now, albeit with connection to reading, that my right eye, one day after the hospital procedures has gone semi-blind. A grey fog has descended. What next, I think, sitting on my pity pot. I have an appointment with my eye guy first thing Tuesday and we'll take it from there.
But at least the left eye is behaving itself. And there have been no alarming calls after two biopsies on last Tuesday.
And, I always think, and I pass this on, who would trade places with me right now? So many worse off, so many in desperation and pain. So many, and I know one dear one, who are facing their own mortality.
