Yesterday, our cable modem went on the fritz, making our internet slow as molasses — when it wasn’t out altogether, which was about every five minutes. Unfortunately, that meant I wasn’t able to do the Zoom play reading of Arsenic and Old Lace. (Darn it, I was looking forward to that!) But Mr. Bookwyrm spent some time on the phone with the tech support people from the cable internet company, and they pinned it down to the actual modem. So Mr. Bookwyrm went to Best Buy and bought a new one, and now we are up and running again.

What I’m Reading/Watching
Reading: I read three ARCs this week: Once a Laird (Mary Jo Putney) and The Forbidden and The Unknown (Heather Graham.) And I reread Devil in Disguise (Lisa Kleypas; ARC) to refresh my memory so I can write a review before it is released on Tuesday. (And also because I really loved it.) Plus, I continued my reread of the Mary Russell & Sherlock Holmes series by Laurie R. King, finishing up O Jerusalem this week.
