Goats, gripes, and grasping for greatness
What I did on my vacation was *read*

Read Irresponsibly
One of the biggest joys of the Cabin is the lack of distractions from the pursuit of reading. Admittedly, I was knitting while I was reading a lot of the time (see the long list of re-reads), but still. There are no animals, no internets, very few phone calls, etc. to pull us away from our chosen pasttimes.

Books started but not finished:
*Cyteen - Ok, I think need to catalog Cherryh as an author that I cannot read in electronic format. I couldn't hold onto the storyline.

*The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes - Vaguely interesting, but lacking in action.

The City Who Fought - this was a re-read. I'd forgotten how obnoxious the pirates were, and I think that Elizabeth Moon does a better job with them.

*Edgar Allen Poe's Complete Poetical Works - the biography at the beginning was fascinating, but the actual poems just couldn't keep me engaged.

I need to hit the bookstore for a copy of Once Broken Faith. That's next on my want-list.
