A co-worker made me sick. Bleh. I have been coughing and hacking despite taking cough drops and medicine for days, going to sleep early, and not doing much over the weekend.
I did have a chance to finish The Inheritance of Loss for the book group. I am still thinking of questions, because most of the questions in back of the book are just plot summary questions. Explain the reason for plot revelations (not linear), are teenagers expected not to be self-centered in India (like their US counterparts), what is a family; these are some of the ones that I am going to ask at the group.
I also had a chance to start a non-fiction book about the cut flower industry. Did you know that most flowers sold now have NO scent? Did you know that you can use Viagra to make the flowers last longer in the vase?
I also did my taxes. Get more money. Get the telephone excise tax credit: 1040 form, line 71 or the 1040EZ form, line 9.
My free book, Mysteries of the Middle Ages, also arrived. I am salivating over it. Mr. Cahill has included some medieval illuminations in the text! My mother has grabbed the book and has started reading it! Thanks to Luke E. for sending it to me from NYC.
Have a good reading week!
