"Lab Rat One" (Part 2 of "Touchstone") commences on 1 April, so after my week off to celebrate finishing "Stray", I intended to pick up and roll with the edits this morning in a nice example of good timing.

I wrote one sentence, then went back to reading a rather good murder mystery on my e-reader.  Rather good books are very distracting.

I am very caught up in "Touchstone", though, and even began re-reading bits of "Stray" _again_ over the past few days.  My head is firmly in the events at the end of "Lab Rat One", thinking through the relationship dynamic, and I find I'm glad I stuck with the diary format.  It will probably not work for everyone, but it makes the story very compelling for me to read.

But must resist too many rather good murder mysteries...

  3. Still going to. But I want to get the right one for me...and I haven't been putting the time into figuring that out. BTW an american student had hers set as being in America (don't know exactly what that meant) and when she set to Australia so she could access the internet from it here, her list of available books to buy halved!

  4. Yes, regionality is a big issue with ebooks. Hopefully it will go away eventually. I just buy a different book, or buy hard copy, if I can't get it in e.

I started accruing my book collection in my late teens.  Not too many early on, since I moved house a lot.  A couple of shelves of books.  T...
