Good morning Saloners,
The cool weather has set in. It is perfect for working outside and spreading the 10 yards of mulch I had dumped in the front yard. My method, at my age, is to do a little at a time, alternating with reading online and my new book, Jane Gardam’s Old Filth, which I am finding delightful. The mulch will likely take me all week. The book, just one more day.
This method accomplishes two things. It gives me both exercise and prevents excessive couch sitting. Sitting, I read this week somewhere, is the new smoking; it will take years off your life. Oh well, I guess I’ve already done quite a bit of that damage – reading and working in offices.
I posted my review of Solea, the third book of the Jean-Claude Izzo’s Marseilles Trilogy this week and I am ready to move on to something other than noir for a bit, though I’m not sure what.
I’m in the gathering ideas stage. Next book, after Old Filth, needs to be a newish one. (I am sure I will be returning to Gardam to read the next three in that series – but I want to interrupt this Europa pattern for a while.)
Time for a library visit.
