Happy New Year

Happy New Year

A belated Happy New Year to you all!

It's been a slow January for yours truly. Maybe because it's wet and grey during the day and then utterly dark by 5:30. Maybe it's post-Christmas blahs. Maybe just because. Regardless, it's been hard getting excited by much of anything, and hard getting motivated to do stuff. Thank goodness nothing really bad has happened, that's a recipe for cocooning in a blanket until Spring.

There has been a bright spot. I've read more excellent books in the last 2 or 3 weeks than I did in the last 2 months. Some of them were Christmas gifts and others were loaned to me. They include the most recent releases in David Weber's Honor Herrington universe, Steven Brust's Vlad Taltos universe, and Terry Pratchett's Disc World universe. And a friend introduced me to Robin Hobb's Realm of the Elderlings universe. It's heaven discovering a new author to love, especially when she has a large catalog of books! I haven't had this much fun since I discovered Lois McMaster Bujold.

Though slow, it's not such a bad start to the New Year. Now, if Vancouver could only get more than 3 hours of bright sunshine . . .
