What Denise is Reading this Week

The news. Who isn't? But when I can't stand it any more, I switch over to The Blight Way, by Patrick McManus, who's been one of my favorites since I was 7 or 8. James and I are also reading Chalice, by Robin McKinley.

What Denise is reading this week

Spindle's End, by Robin McKinley. McKinley is one of my favorites for sheer get-lost-in-it stories. I read her when I want to get away from things for a bit. Spindle is one of my favorites. It's a retelling of Sleeping Beauty, and completely engrossing.
I think you can probably tell a lot about my mood by what I choose to read any given week. I think the more relaxed I am the more I go in for classics or non-fiction. When I start burying my nose in the (digital) pages of fantasy land, I tend to be more stressed.

We're looking at buying a house. I need something like an abacus to weigh all the pros and cons. Land to run, space inside, good vs. average schools, old vs. new... argh.

Gabrielle Giffords

is back voting in the House today. Good for you, Ms. Giffords!
