Bedside and bathroom stacks... [Feb. 23rd, 2009|09:14 pm]
[Current Mood |awake]

So, the plumbers are coming to remove the old toilets and install new ones.   And that means areas must be cleared, since no one could easily maneuver the plumbing fixtures through the maze right now.

Lying in bed sick for so long enlarged the stacks beside the bed and in  the bathroom...which I've started clearing away.   This includes (for your evening giggles)  eight copies of Science, seven copies of Nature, three copies of the SFWA Bulletin, three copies of The New England Journal of Medicine, one copy of The New Yorker, one copy of Scientific American,  three BassPro catalogs (I bought two game-cams from them and will be getting big fat catalogs bragging about their testosterone content *forever*)  P.D. James's  The Private Patient,  Elaine Powers's Medieval People, Braudel's Structures of Everyday Life, a book on Texas crawdads, Wildlife Stewardship and Recreation on Private Lands,  Dew's Making Rocking Horses,  Rogoff's Apprenticeship in ThinkingPond Life (small field guide, not that good),  Perez-Reverte's Purity of Blood (an Alatriste novel), and the proceedings of the First International Symposium on Specific Speech and Language Disorders in Children (1987).   Plus a few books in genre, a mix of those I dislike and those I like (the disliked ones because I was groping about for something simple enough for my fevered brain.)  Not mentioning any of the titles or authors, except a few of mine were in the mix, mostly picked up off the kitchen table on forays out to get something to drink and take aspirin.   Plus the big fat all-in-one Shakespeare that's far too fat and heavy to read in bed...except sometimes only Shakespeare works.

Copier paper boxes are already full of old manuscripts and papers that need sorting...I'm coming to realize that unless a rip in the space time fabric sufficient to give me months of time no one else has access to happens soon, sorting will never happen. There's too much. Today will be scraping and piling, not sorting.

Re: bedside stacks

I finished it--R- brought it home for me, and I was sick, and the writing was smooth, not annoying anywhere. I fully understand your reason for not reading it and would agree that it's almost certainly the last--internal evidence of the book itself, not just her age. I re-read her books, mostly from the "I want to understand how she did that" writer-approach. So for me having finished it doesn't mean the supply's exhausted, though I've gradually made headway in dissecting her tools.

When you're ready to read it, it'll be waiting.

Hope you're pleased to know

that "Moon Flights" is keeping me company while I'm healing. Top of the stack, workin' my way through. Just enjoyed your deviously delightful "New World Symphony." Ahh.

Re: Hope you're pleased to know

I'm always happy to know that one of my books has helped someone get through a tough patch--and if it adds a chuckle, all the better. Thanks for letting me know.
