Since my last update:
It was a weird week for reading. It seemed like every time I sat down to read I either only had a few minutes or I had ereader troubles (more about that later). So I’m still reading The 500 by Matthew Quirk. It’s very reminiscent of Grisham’s The Firm but about Washington DC power brokers. I’m enjoying it during the rare moment I actually had to read it this week.
I’m also reading Mallory’s Oracle by Carol O’Connell. I’m only about 70 pages in but I’m liking it a lot. This is the first in a series that’s been on my TBR list for a long time and I’m very glad I finally got around to reading it.
On audio I’m listening to Let’s Pretend This Never Happened: A Mostly True Memoir by Jenny Lawson (The Bloggess). It’s alternating between truly laugh out loud hilarious and surprisingly touching in the moments where she talks about her miscarriages and anxiety disorder. She reads it herself and I think that’s a good choice for this book. I’m not sure anyone else could possibly be right for this book.
Other than books and reading:
I mentioned above that I had ereader issues. My nook Simple Touch (which I love) has been randomly freezing requiring a reboot. It was becoming more and more annoying but I have to say I was very pleased with B&N’s customer support. I was able to get some advice via online chat the other day with some steps to try to resolve the issue. When the problem cropped up again I was back online and chatting with them yesterday. They’re sending me a replacement so all should be fine soon.
It was a busy week with nothing much noteworthy happening. We had great get together with some friends yesterday for a BBQ down near Eugene – complete with wild turkeys and deer wandering through occasionally.
I did catch this with my phone the other day from my office. A pretty morning in downtown Portland.
This week’s Abby Antics happened on Tuesday. I was working from home and she was exploring behind the TV in the den.

I was laughing so hard I wasn’t sure the pictures would turn out.
Hope you’re having a great weekend.
