I’m nearly finished with the final novella in the At the Duke’s Wedding anthology. (My favorite of the entire collection was Caroline Linden’s “When I Met My Duchess.” I really wanted more of that story or a sequel or something. )
So it’s time to decide what to read next, & I’ve got three books on my immediate To Be Read pile to choose from. The problem is, it’s too hard to choose!
Option #1 — Making an encore appearance from the last time I couldn’t decide what to read next, Bared to You by Sylvia Day is still hovering there, tempting me.
Option #2 — Then there’s Kay Hooper’s The First Prophet. This one has been calling to me for quite a while & I always enjoy a good Kay Hooper romantic suspense.
Option #3 — Fired Up by Jayne Ann Krentz. Another one that’s been staring at me for much too long. And again, I always love a hot & sexy JAK.
Of course, this is the first of a series & I’m not sure how soon I’ll be able to get to the rest of the series, so…do I really want to jump into that? But then, I’m not a stickler for reading a series all in a row & sometimes not even in order unless it’s really, really necessary. (Like with Laurell K. Hamilton’s “Anita Blake” or “Meredith Gentry” series.)
It’s a nail-biting proposition. If only I could read all three of them at once!
But until I acquire that particular super power, how about you guys chime in with which book you think I should read next.
How are my Darlings of The Dungeon this week? Well, I hope…with lots of great stuff making you happy that you’re eager to share with the rest of us!
This week, I AM HAPPY that I finally got my new Macbook Air out of its box. Yes, it’s true—getting it set up & running was a two- or three-day process. When I’m nervous about stuff, I have to take baby steps rather than jumping in & trying to get everything done at once
I AM HAPPY that—after two tries & about 36 hours total —I finally completed the Mac –> Macbook migration. Which means everything I had on my desktop Mac is now on the Macbook. (Knock on wood.) And it’s even all set up in basically the same order. Gotta love that!
I AM HAPPY that one of the programs that migrated was Word for Mac, which I really, really need to write! And all my folders & files & documents came with it. Yay! That was a major concern, so it’s also a major relief. (Now I just have to figure out how to work Dropbox & iCloud, & how to keep everything (documents, pictures, files, etc.) exactly the same. I’m not 100% clear yet on how updates & syncing work. )
I AM HAPPY that I managed to get all of my photos moved from Madame Mommy Dearest‘s old laptop to the new Macbook without too much trouble, too. It required a zip drive & acouple of tries, but that was another concern, & now it’s done. Whew. The next hurdle will be figuring out how to rescue all of MMD‘s other stuff off the old laptop before it has to go bye-bye. Because again…the laptop is so old it’s still running on Windows XP, which is obsolete, & it’s got the big, giant crack down the middle of the screen, thanks to my clumsiness.
And finally—though not Macbook-related —I AM HAPPY that WGN re-ran the entire first season of Salem, which I’ve been hearing so much about. So slowly but surely, I’ve been watching episodes on the Torture Cycle. I can’t say that I love it…as in, am all ga-ga & waiting for it to come out on DVD…but I’m intrigued & like it well enough. And let’s face it, the lead character, John Alden (played by Shane West) isn’t exactly hard on the eyes.
And that is my good news for the week, in a nutshell. How about you? What exciting stuff has been happening with you over the past week, or what would you like to take a moment just to be thankful for?
(If it gets much hotter this summer, I am definitely going to invest in one of these. )
