Last week was a total loss. I got home from work monday and I didn't really move off the couch until the following Sunday. Really bad head cold that just got in everywhere. I was only really Sunday that I started feeling any better. Still not 100%, but I'm at least functional.

Getting better on Sunday was good as Janna made a big equinox meal. We had these interesting squash/potato pancakes, an ungodly good beet salad with capers and feta, and some beef sausage from one of the local farms, then for afters these amazing Apple hand pies with the most perfect crust I could imagine. Oh, she picked up a quite nice shiraz as well.

Mostly what I did during the lost week was read. I have only a vague notion of how many lesbian romance novels I read, but Amazon will not be making any profit on my $9.95/month Kindle Unlimited subscription. I think of the funniest experiences I had was with a "rock star" romance that I quite enjoyed, then I got to the end and discovered she'd written a few stories for the "new" (now over ten year old) Thieves World books.

I'm sort of slogging through this week. To return to the 90s: I'm not sick, but I'm not well.

Sorry you're not feeling well. It always amazes me how quickly a bug can knock us on our butts and keep us there.

Amazon offers an Unlimited Subscription?!? Why did I not know this?? I spend more on kindle books per month than our household spends on its combined cable bill (internet, phone, expanded basic TV)!

Don't get too excited, it's not everything, it's a limited selection mostly indies. For me, it's working out great because most of what I read les-rom, erom, new adult is well represented among indies. If you go to the store, anything in the program will have a button to "read free with kindle unlimited" which then signs you up for the program.
