Lost again. I mean the NM-AZ Book Awards where my Fate of
the Kinunir lost to Weston Ochse (again). Such is life. Above
are 3 different NM Book Award "losers" but I think all
are winners in enjoyment and downright fine entertainment value.
Tis the season to...read!
NaNoWriMo is still not going well for me this year because of
so many life interruptions. Plus I am struggling not to get a
cold. Sniffling a little, but not much. These days I don't get
so many colds but they still mutate within me now and again. Last
year I caught something that lasted months. Not sick, not well.

It's the small things in life... Or at least the 140 character

Steve Sullivan did great work getting it ready to go. Check out

My e-books on the catalog

iPad viewing: Finished the 2nd season of the Miss Fisher Mysteries
and have launched into season 2 of Peaky Blinders. All I can say
is, wow, the last shot of season 1 ending was turned on its head
by first minute of season 2 opener. Well done!
iPad reading: Not a great deal that wasn't research oriented.
Regular cable stuff: Gotham. Hell on Wheels is
over until it comes back for a final 5th season. And Netflix picked
up Longmire. Good for them. They're going with a winner
and I don't need to ever go back to A&E.
Wishing you all a very gobble-licious Thanksgiving.
