If this is all I wanted to use my new printer for, I'd have a blog post for you today. But, I have a wonderful friend who is a genius, unafraid to tackle anything computer-related. I bought a new printer on Friday, expecting to use it with my notebook and a USB cord. Instead, I had to do a work-around, using the older MAC in the house. My friend came over last night, and not only figured out how to use the printer with my notebook, she installed it so I can use it with the wireless. YAY!
So, I spent last night with her working on that, and then visiting. I didn't finish the book I'm reading. I'll tell you what I'm reading right now, and you tell me what you're reading. Actually, I'm reading a few books. Tonight, I'll finish Courtney Miller Santo's The Roots of the Olive Tree, a novel of five generations of women in the Sacramento Valley who live together in the same house in an olive grove. I'm reading Cleo Coyle's new Coffeehouse mystery, A Brew to a Kill, but I'll be reviewing that at Readertoreader.com. I'll be finishing Sean Chercover's thriller, The Trinity Game, within the next few days. I have a few others I just started, but I do have a method to my reading madness, and those three are the ones I'll be finished with soon.

It's an honor to be asked to review books, and I'm grateful to all the publishers, publicists, and authors who send me books. Thank you. Reviews will appear on my blog if I've had a chance to read, and finish, the book. If I do not finish a book, I won't review it, and I will not respond to emails asking when, or if, I'll be reviewing a book.
My reviews are only my opinion, and do not reflect the views of the Evansville Vanderburgh Public Library.
I will not review self-published books, and, at the present time, do not accept books in e-book format.
