Greetings and Salutations -

I am finally starting to feel like I can work on things again. I think my elderly cat's lingering illness and finally her passing took more out of me than I thought. I just had trouble getting started on anything. And I'm sure the political situation didn't help. So watch for a few messages from me as I start to move forward.

First off, let's tackle my book pile. My house looks like a hoarder's nightmare and it's time to carve through the chaos. I'm sure that doesn't help my frame of mind much either ;). So we are down to these books all sent to me by Penguin for review. By now these have all been offered before. First dibs goes to anyone who wants to review them but please chime in if you want one for ANY reason (including gift-giving). Those who indicate a review potential will have the first choice but again at this point we've already tried to find those editors. It's likely all of these will go to people who just want to take them. They could be yours.
