Wrinkles and Doors

Cats Know All About Tessering!

Now that the new Firekeeper e-books are uploaded, writing is filling my time, but I hope to have a bit more time to read as well.

For those of you just discovering this part of my blog, the Friday Fragments lists what I’ve read over the past week.  Most of the time I don’t include details of either short fiction (unless part of a book-length collection) or magazines.

The Fragments are not meant to be a recommendation list.  If you’re interested in a not-at-all-inclusive recommendation list, you can look on my website under Neat Stuff.

Once again, this is not a book review column.  It’s just a list with, maybe, a bit of description or a few opinions tossed in.

What are you reading?

Recently Completed:

A Fountain Filled With Blood by Julie Spencer Fleming.  Audiobook.  So far I’m liking this series enough to keep going.

A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle.  This childhood favorite held up well.  No.  I haven’t seen the movie.  I don’t tend to see movies based on books I’ve liked.  My quirk!

In Progress:

A Wind in the Door by Madeleine L’Engle.  I remember how confusing I found parts of the final chapter.  I wonder how it will re-read.

Out of the Deep I Cry by Julie Spencer Fleming.  Audiobook.  Just started.

Also:

Catching up on magazines.   Making good progress!

    I’m usually disappointed with movies based on books I like, so I don’t usually see them either. I did make an exception with the Lord Of The Rings movies. I was nervous when I watched Fellowship, but I think Jackson did a good job.

    Completed –
    Tongues Of Serpents by Naomi Novik

    I really like these characters and this world. I’m waiting for my turn to borrow the next in the series from the library.

    Currently Reading –
    Blood Of The Four by Christopher Golden and Tim Lebbon.

    I’m half way through. I’ll reserve comment until I’ve finished.

    Timequake by Kurt Vonnegut.

    Oops, sent it too fast… Just started Timequake by I love Vonnegut so I’m sure it will be great.

    I think I need to put A Wrinkle In Time on my “To Read” list. I keep hearing/reading about the story, must be the universe telling me something.

    “To Kill a Mockingbird” is, I think, the best movie adaptation of a book I’ve read. Our library book club just read a western, Frank Gruber’s “Fort Starvation,” and then saw the movie based on it, “Backlash.” Screenwriter Borden Chase took the book and gave it a huge twist at the end, which may have been better than the book.

    Actually finished something: The Strike Wings. An account of anti-shipping operations by RAF Coastal Command off the coast of Europe. I used to read a lot of this sort of thing back in the day. Of course, WWII was pretty real to me in ’65: it was within living memory of all the adults around me. And this book is yet another reminder of just how limited the usefulness of both Bomber Command and the US 8thAF really was, especially considering the resources they chewed up.

    Still working on the books on The Persians and The Chicken, as well as a slew of user manuals for this that and the other, and the usual pile of articles from Arxiv.

    Oh, and I’m facing the downside of catching up on wot i red… there’s no more of them! I think I’m going to have to have a word with Jake about… encouraging Alan to increase his output. Would have talked to Harpo, but he’s not available anymore.

    Currently reading The Immortals by Jordanna Max Brodsky, an interesting take on “the Greek gods are alive and well and living in Manhattan”.

    Sadly no Proteus.
