The Sunday Post is hosted by the wonderful Kimberly, the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news, recap the past week, take a look ahead, and showcase our new treasures—I mean books! This week, I’m also linking to Stacking the Shelves (hosted by Tynga’s Reviews) and It’s Monday! What Are You Reading (hosted by The Book Date.)
I made some changes to my hosting agreement that should save me money, but resulted in a forced update to the new WordPress “Gutenberg” editor… something I had been avoiding since it came out. The new editor is going to take some getting used to, and may result in some changes in the blog’s appearance as I become more familiar with what I can and can’t do with the new “block editor” features.
On first acquaintance, I’m not a fan, but it may grow on me. One thing I’ve already noticed is that I can no longer force the text editor or WISYWIG editor to add an empty line between sections of text. In the old WordPress, I could do that by inserting the html code  c; in the text editor where I wanted a blank line, but that’s not working in Gutenberg. That means that posts like this one, with a lot of sections, are going to look more crowded together, until I can find a workaround.

What I’m Reading/Watching
Reading: I reread Uhura’s Song (Janet Kagan) for the first time in 8 or 9 years, and started rereading Fortune’s Fool (Mercedes Lackey.) I’m still reading the second Duncan Kincaid & Gemma James mystery, All Shall Be Well (Deborah Crombie; library), as well as The Book Charmer by Karen Hawkins (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 film music on Pandora, while I work around the house, and to “classical focus” playlists on Spotify while I work on an index.
Watching: We rewatched the entire Lord of the Rings trilogy over the last eight days (extended version, of course!) – about 2 hours each night. (One disc per night, since we have the old DVD special editions.)
