Well, I swear I posted about books I'd read earlier this year, but there aren't any posts.  Now I don't stand a chance of remembering everything.  So in no particular order:

1.  Kerstin Ekman The Forest of Hours
2.  Asimov's Mar/Apr 2017
3.  Asimov's May/Jun 2017
4.  Asimov's Jan/Feb 2017
5.  Eva A. Speare ed, New Hampshire Fold Tales
6.  Robert Hoskins ed, "The Stars Around Us"

I swear I've read more, but then again the Ekman was a slog and I haven't really had any time to read.

27. Asimov's October/November 2015
28. Richard Adamns Watership Down Had never read it before and actually really enjoyed it.
29. Ernest Cline Ready Player One Not very well written, but will fill any 80's nostalgia deficiency you're feeling. Billed as a dystopian novel, too many people live happily ever after. Some major plot holes.

The other day I looked out the kitchen window and saw a bird which, to me, resembled George C. Scott playing Scrooge. It was the mutton chops and the large down pointing beak. Face on this bird

really does look like Scott. I couldn't find a good shot head on, but you might be able to picture the white swath running down from the beak as mutton chops.



My brain is strange.

The bird is a juvenile Rose Breasted Grossbeak.
