Okay, so I was totally bummed because my MP3 recorder broke two weeks ago and I was going to have to buy a new one before I head out to L.A. on Monday. But last night as I lie in bed relishing lovely thoughts of my clean office, I remembered I’d bought the warranty with the recorder. Whoohoo! I came downstairs this morning and sifted thru the one foot pile of receipts for 2006 six and found it. I sent the oldest to Best Buy and he came back with a spanking new one that works. Very, very cool. This thing makes my life so much easier because I move the interviews onto my computer and control them as I write. Saves a ton of time. Now if they’d just come up with an MP3 that transcribes the interviews, I’ll be in heaven.
So what’s up with you guys? What are you reading? I forgot to tell you that I read like 11 books in four days while I was taking some time off. I’m trying to remember everything let’s see from my witchy chicks buds I read Madlyn Alt’s The Trouble with Magic, and Kate Austin’s anthology in Holiday Wishes. Kim Harrisons’ Every Which Way But Dead. Jodi Thomas’ Texan’s Reward (I missed that one somehow.) I read two books my Editor gave me when I was Berkley, both of which were really great and of course they are upstairs and I can’t remember the name or even the authors of either one. I’ll get those to you. I also read books by Linda Castillo, Patricia Cornwell, Nora Roberts and started the P.L Travers biography. Oh, and I read some YA’s that Rosemary (readrosemary.com) gave me. Peace, Love and something, and another one. Again I loved them both, I just don’t have any brain cells left this week. I’ve written six feature stories and turned in a proposal to my editor last night. So keep your fingers crossed for that one. :-)
So what are you reading, or what’s your favorite book from last year?
