I know what you mean! I've been checking in a lot more frequently than I was at the other place.

Yeah, been on this site way too much! I think I was going through withdrawl when the other site went wonky. Just trying to get caught up again. I am sure I will level off in a bit.

I know what you mean! The last few weeks I haven't gotten hardley any reading done. I had a bunch of stuff to do so I could go out of town then coming back and playing catch up! And I'm spending way too much time on here TALKING about reading instead of reading!!

I had planned to spend this entire afternoon reading but now my fiance wants to go visit his family today! Arrrgh! I love his family but just want to stay home by myself with some lemonade and a good book!!

Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favourite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

Yup, I am quite behind on everything. But on the other hand, it has been rather stimulating, watching the web mini-drama play out. :D And as new reviews are posted, I want to read them, but too many are happening at once.

Can't seem to find to time to read or write much, because of the new teaching job...I'm beginning to resent it, too! I want some time to relax, and I work for a really tough school system. The US Dept. of Ed has just named them one of the 100 best systems in the country. Okay, I get it to some extent, but these people are the kings of bureaucracy (Did I spell that right?). I wish that my working conditions were better, too...Don't want to go into that.

Hmmmmm.....Could be worse, I guess.
