1. My computer is all busted and that is my current excuse for the no posting. Those of my acquaintance who are good with computers are unsure whether it can be revived ... or whether all the files can be saved. 3,000 or so pictures of Marko and 5 years of writing are at stake. I am very anxious about this.
So now I'm reduced to using John's computer. Isn't it funny that it used to be enough for a family to own one computer, and now everyone is so used to having their own? If we can't fix my computer, I'm kind of thinking we won't replace it. But maybe a netbook ....?
2. I recently finished The Hunger Games. Yes, it is just as good as everyone says, but no, I'm not going to tell you anything else about it. I've been plugging my ears when anyone talks about it for months, so I didn't spoil it for myself while I waited for it to become available at the library. I wouldn't even read the back of the book.
Anyway, it was wonderful wonderful wonderful, really drew me in, made me think, etc., but now I'm in that slack zone where all you want is another book like the one you just read. Any recommendations?
