|Your Life is 46% Off Track|
Some things are going well, but you can't help but wonder if you're getting the most out of life.
It's time for you to slow down and reflect a little. You can change your life - but it's up to you!
Well, that's depressing if you're a half empty kind of person, which? Yes. Also a Worst Case Scenario expert. Think of something, anything, and I can tell you in under a minute why you will be in mortal danger or at the very least, up a creek without a paddle if you do it. OTOH, if I'm proven wrong, all the better! Narrowly averted catastrophe! If I'm right? Both prepared and......well, I was right.
Last weeks question:
Almost everyone can name at least one author that you would love just ONE more book from. Either because they’re dead, not being published any more, not writing more, not producing new work for whatever reason . . . or they’ve aged and aren’t writing to their old standards any more . . . For whatever reason, there just hasn’t been anything new (or worth reading) of theirs and isn’t likely to be.
If you could have just ONE more book from an author you love . . . a book that would be as good any of their best (while we’re dreaming) . . . something that would round out a series, or finish their last work, or just be something NEW . . . Who would the author be, and why? Jane Austen? Shakespeare? Laurie Colwin? Kurt Vonnegut?
I'd love to read another Sarah Caudwell mystery. Thus Was Adonis Murdered, Shortest Way to Hades, The Sirens Sang of Murder, The Sybil In Her Grave. Just well crafted mysteries. The why would be she just didn't write enough of them to suit me. More is better.
- Do you cheat and peek ahead at the end of your books? Or do you resolutely read in sequence, as the author intended?
- And, if you don’t peek, do you ever feel tempted?
Cheat? Cheat? It's my book! I can read it any way I want. That said, sure, I cheat. If I'm really bored with the book, I'll skip to the last section and see if it picks up, or if I'm tied up with suspense (I hate that), I'll read the last few pages to see how it all turns out.
I think that's roughly the temperature of Hades. She thinks it's Heaven. Cats. (Please do not look at the deck. A certain someone decided to use indoor paint on outdoor redwood.)
