I got my project turned in just in time to pack and fly home. It was great seeing my family, but it’s good to be home, especially after a week apart from Mr. Bookwyrm. In the coming week, I’ll start the next index and start choosing music for my choruses… and try to find time to clean the house, read, blog, knit, and spin.

What I’m Reading/Watching
Reading: I read Project Duchess by Sabrina Jeffries and The Presence by Heather Graham, both of which I bought recently (Kindle.) Then I reread The Black Swan, Mercedes Lackey’s retelling of the ballet Swan Lake from Odile’s and Siegfried’s points of view (with a lot of additional material, including a nod toward the ballet Giselle.) I last read it in 2012, so it’s been quite a while. I also reread Deborah Crombie’s first Duncan Kincaid & Gemma James mystery, A Share In Death. She’s a terrific mystery writer; I love the series, and I’m really behind on it, but I want to reread the books I read 7 or 8 years ago before continuing on with the series. I’m still reading The Book Charmer by Karen Hawkins (ARC.) And eventually I will get back to Dragonfell (Sarah Prineas, ARC.)
Listening to: I’m nearly finished with Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking. I’ve also been listening to a lot of film music on Pandora, while I work around the house.
Watching: Season 4 of Eureka; Star Trek: Discovery Season 2

I’ve read The Elusive Mrs. Pollifax a number of times, and The Other Lady Vanishes twice. But how have I not even heard of the York series before? It sounds like so much fun! As for the Harrison Investigation set, I’ve already read the first two books, but it was cheaper to buy the Kindle 3-in-1 set than to buy the third book by itself. (And anyway, I borrowed Ghost Walk from the library when I read it, so the only one I already owned was Haunted.)
