I had a great conversation with my niece about books vs movies. Nothing much gets past her. She keeps all the threads in one hand and follows them back to the correct books. Divergent's movie adaptation wasn't true to the book - a sin in her eyes. I've trained her well.
I didn't get the house scrubbed but I made a dent. That’s a good thing. Just setting aside the books I've read made a difference. Not only did I clean the kitchen, I made chocolate chip cookies.
I finished the book I was reading. It was excellent. I don't know how I forget exactly how fantastic Maggie Shayne writes. Her characters and worlds suck me right in until nothing else exists.
