books, days off, sickness, what next?

Well, had two days off in a row. Yay! Except Nick got really really sick last night and then stayed home from work today. He looks much better than he did last night, so I'm happy. And happy that I don't seem to have whatever it is that he has. Poor guy.

Went to Barnes and Noble this morning to buy Inda (and run to SuperTarget for 7-Up and Gatorade, etc for Nick) , but didn't buy the book since it was almost $26! So instead I bought Playing With Fire by Gena Showalter and The Gladiator's Honor by Michelle Styles. Erk, I'd told myself that I was only going to buy the Showalter as an ebook, but I guess I jumped the gun when I saw it out early. Oh, and I bought Inda from Amazon. $17 something was much nicer than $26.

And I started PWF today. Read a bit. Set it down. Read a bit. Set it down. And so on and so on. Frankly, it's a bit boring! It has such a great premise, but it just doesn't quite deliver. It's a huge disappointment. I think because the heroine is kinda a ditz. I think I'm going to finish the book, but I'm not in a huge hurry. I've had it all day and I'm only about halfway through it.

I did start to read Medalon by Jennifer Fallon and so far I really like it. I've really been into reading more fantasy than romance lately. Then when it was lights out I read In Fury Born by Weber some more.

Now I should head back to bed. I work 9 to 5 tomorrow, so can't sleep in. Just having a bit of trouble sleeping. Just not tired. Probably from that nap I had this afternoon.

*sigh I'm beginning to suspect Gena Showalter is one of those authors whose plots are better as ideas than they are in execution. I was really looking forward to PWF because I liked the premise but I was a bit worried that I haven't liked what I've read of GS previously. Ah well, I'm next on the library's list for the ebook.
