I've got a few minutes of Internet access at a motel in Ithaca, New York. Only a few minutes because I just lost the entire post I'd written using the rest of my time.
We listened to an entire book on CD on the way here, plus I finished a book I was reading and read a bit of Metropolitan Life by Fran Leibowitz.
The audio book was Rowan Hood by Nancy Springer. Not bad. More to follow.
I finished Beige by Cecil Castellucci. (Sorry if her name is spelled wrong. I can't figure out how to reduce this screen and search.) I respect what I think the author was trying to do, but I found the book a little, well, beige. More to follow.
And, finally, Metropolitan Life--appears to be just a lot of humorous bits strung together.
Until I can get to another computer and do some more reading, a la prochaine. (Can you guess where I'm going?)
