We are cruel
Love is not a game
We have made a game
Out of love

Super easy one-person meals that you heat in a microwave. I've started to try the recipes, they taste better than frozen dinners!

Will Pattern does great job narrating NEON RAIN. I knew instantly which of the several characters were speaking. I had a strong feel for who they were just through his voice work.

How is it so easy for you
To be kind to people he asked

Milk and honey dripped
From my lips as i answered

Cause people have not
Been kind to me

People have been telling me that they either read fiction or nonfiction, like being right-handed or left-facing-handed. Not both usually. At least in my neighborhood.

I used to read mostly fiction for fun but over time I have been reading more nonfiction for pleasure. Maybe I can get a balance some day, who knows?

Herland: Easyread Comfort Edition | Charlotte Perkins Gilman
Mehso-so

Other reviewers have complained that not a lot happens in the book but I found it a surprisingly easy read. I do warn any potential reader that she makes it clear that Herland has no people of color.

Despite its flaws, it did have two good points: women still need real pockets and our children are still not safe.

And it made me ask questions and think about society. Now I want to find more modern utopias.

The three men of Herland in my imagination: Jeff the idealist, Terry the macho one, and Van, the scientific one.

It's easy to dislike Terry. Before they even reach Herland, he's plotting to turn the women against each other and become king and then have his pick of the women. His two friends he plans to execute. He's clearly joking but it felt chilling not fun to me.

Spoiler: Terry's scheme does not even begin to happen.

It seems like an ideal place for kids. They can go anywhere in a kind of giant park because there's nothing to hurt them. Everyone they meet is either a caretaker or a teacher.

Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett. I was always being scolded for daydreaming in school. And so I identified with Sarah's imagination helping her escape her situation.

Where Angels Go | Debbie Macomber
Mehso-so

A sweet, gentle Christmas read. The World of Warcraft subplot was cute. I gave it so-so because the ending felt a little rushed.

Mary Roach has a fearless curiosity. She goes to the kind of places and asks the kind of questions that I just couldn't. The early chapters on dissection, decomposition, and crash analysis were the most fascinating in a forensics way. She's really funny and her footnotes made me stop and look up the whole story.

PollyPotter This writer made me laugh so much. A delight. 2y
Bathilda Yes, she is so funny. I'm looking forward to her other books Grunt and Gulp and so on. 1y
