I'm alive!!!!

Ah, it's good to not be sick. But, beccause I missed so many days being sick, we postponed our hotel trip. I'm still determined to go there someday, though.

But we still have today as a vacation day, so we've decided to head to Dubuque for the day. See the Mississippi River Aquarium, Mines of Spain, casino, and Borders. Hey, there are no Borders anywhere near here.

Plan to bring the camera and take pictures.

Oh, and we bought a new vacuum cleaner. We're such exciting people! But hey, it's one powerful vac and it was fun to clean the whole apartment last night with it.

In other news....books read:

White Lies by Jayne Ann Krentz, Tell Me Your Secrets by Cara Summers, Private Confessions by Lori Borrill, Cordelia's Honor by Lois McMaster Bujold, Nip, Tuck, Dead by Lori Avocato, The Chosen by Alex Archer, and Jennifer Scales and the Ancient Furnace by MaryJanice Davidson and Anthony Alongi. I think that's everything, but I could be wrong. Oh, Relentless by Jo Leigh.

And everything was quite good, too. I've been on a roll with the good books.

It's great that you're back Nicole. Which of the books that you read was best?

Glad you're feeling better but how disappointing about the trip. And finally!! And author I've read too *g* JAK. I haven't read that book mind you - but I have read the author.

Maria, I'm not sure which book was best. I really really liked Cordelia's Honor. Private Confessions made me squirm (it was a Harlequin Blaze). :-) The Chosen had lots of good action. All were good, though.

Glad you are finally on the mend and you would be surprised what I find exciting around here - oooh, mail!

I hope you are able to get to that hotel sooner rather than later! Have fun in Dubuque!

Cordelia's Honor is stupendous, isn't it? I love that Barrayar and Shards of Honor are packaged together like that now because they really are two parts of the same story. Nobody writes like Bujold. *sigh*

Nicole said...

Yeah, Cordelia's Honor was great. They have a bunch of the books packaged together, so now I've got a bunch. Grabbed Young Miles, Miles, Mystery and Mayhem, and Miles Errant. I think that brings the series up to Memory, wherever that is. I look forward to reading them in the future.
