Wednesday Reads

It’s a good thing I’m waiting for the next J.R. Ward book. I really don’t have time to read (because of all that editing I’m doing). However, I still have moments when I want to pass the time (like walking on a treadmill or during lunch) and reading will only do. So I’m reading short stories. Anthologies work great when you don’t want to be tied down to a longer story. Glad I have a couple!

Here’s what I read during the week:

Apr 10: “Love’s a Beach,” an anthology by writers of the Ohio Valley Romance Writers of America. Blurb from Goodreads: From heartwarming to mysterious, comical to suspenseful, these romantic tales show that there really is someone for everyone. Featuring stories by Linda Chalk, Ann Gregory, Dakota James, Stacy McKitrick, Sandy Pennington, and Jennette Marie Powell as well as flash fiction and poetry, Love’s a Beach proves there’s something magical about finding love when the warm breezes blow, whether it happens today or a hundred years ago, from the Atlantic shore to the American West coast. Like with all anthologies, there’s a mixture of stories. Nice samples of fine writing. Of course, I’m partial to my two stories! Haha! I gave it 4 stars on Goodreads.
So...did you get any snow on Tuesday? I woke up to covered lawns and cars. Not something you want to see in the middle of April! I sure hope that's the end of it.

Happy reading!

Yes, we did. It's a cruel thing, coming on the heels of a weekend in the 60s and 70s.

Stacy McKitrick said...

Jeff - Cruel, indeed!

We did and still have snow. Though the sun is out and bright and I hear stuff melted.

Happy Wednesday.

We had several inches.

Stacy McKitrick said...

Ivy - I like that--"hear stuff melted." Didn't bother to go out and check, huh?

Michael - We only got an inch, but it was an inch too much.

I was afraid the snow would kill off all my tulips but about half of them have survived.

Stacy McKitrick said...

LD - I think my tulips are hiding in the weeds! Which, by the way, the snow did NOT kill. Figures.
