Weather continues wet and blustery. Much of the Fall color has blown away, but it’s still pretty here; this is a nice time of year. We’ve been busy with various projects: a new raised planting area, removal of a large, old, sick tree and replacing it with a Japanese Maple, small now but sure to grow.
The thing about reading thick short story collections is that it takes a while to get through them at the pace of only a few stories a day, which is what I’ve been reading. I finished In the Company of Sherlock Holmes [reviewed last Wednesday]. Now I’m continuing with the two books pictured: The Omnibus of Science Fiction edited by Groff Conklin, and The MX Book of New Sherlock Holmes Stories, Vol. 1 – 1881-1889 edited by David Marcum. They’re same books as listed in last week’s current reading post.
I’m enjoying the stories, I haven’t found a dud among them, and will keep on with them. I got a novel from the library, but it was disappointing and so will remain unnamed here. I’ll probably start a novel soon, but which one I have no idea.
. She’s enjoying it, and will likely finish it this coming week.
