My new goal - get back into literature. I was an English major, worked in a theatre for several years because I love plays and language, and then something happened that sidetracked my brain cells for quite some time......hmmm.....

I love a good challenging book. I read "Ulysses" aloud to Hannah while she was in utero, and for a while after, until my husband started giving me really strange looks. "You're reading what to a newborn?"

I've had several exciting developments over the past few months. I'm revising a novel I wrote in November, I've been doing a lot of writing as I've eased back into grant writing, and the lovely hubbie bought me a Kindle for Christmas, and I'm busy reading away on that. I'm discovering that the Kindle is a great way to keep up with current literature. If I read a review of a book, or see the New York Times list of notable books, I can go through the list and add the books to my Kindle and have them download in seconds. It's so easy!

I finished my first Kindle book a few days ago, the Booker Prize winning "Wolf Hall," and I'm part-way through the new Margaret Atwood novel, "The Year of the Flood." More about those later.

And I've started buying my clothes rather than making them. So there might not be much of that on here anymore. There's only so much time in the day!

You're welcome to pick up some of the light reading I'm doing such as the Constitutional Laws of the United States, and we can discuss the MANY long winded remarks of the Supreme Court Justices :)
