Like a kid in a toy box

I have a Kindle.  It is smooth and sweet and I’m thinking of naming it Steve.  As in Guttenberg (2 “s”).  As in Gutenberg (1 “s”) Press and Gutenberg Project.  I love www.gutenberg.org, where all books are free and I can find first hand accounts of whatever I’m researching.  Like Victorian Egypt, where my characters decided to go.  Why, I don’t know.  They’re unpredictable like that.

My book budget (ha, ha, as if) hasn’t taken too great a hit.  I’ve downloaded two books and a magazine subscription.  I’ll let you know about “The Help” when I’m done reading it.

Meanwhile, head over to www.writerslikeme.com for my handy writing hints and publishing news.

If cats could talk. . .or type

Today is “What if cats and dogs had opposable thumbs” Day.  Cool!  They could hold a pen or type.  My new kitty, Aunt Vicki, could pen the new Steven Kingish book, “Three Weeks with a Dead Woman.”  Yes, her last owner died, and Aunt Vicki (formerly Sugarplum, blech!) survived for almost a month before someone decided to check on the old lady.  No, there was no gross kitty misbehavior, but the tale begs to be told.

So, what would your pet relate if they had opposable thumbs?

Take care and visit me at www.writerslikeme.com
