Records of wasted time

Instead of playing solitaire, I should exercise. Solitaire depresses; exercise has at least the chance of reducing knee pain. And if I won't exercise, I could at least read more Booth, now I'm near series' end...

I like fall, so I'm not sure why my fall reading is so often mindless fantasy or mystery series. A time-filler; much too often, a time-waster. I won't be keeping my Booths any more than I kept last year's Todds or 2012's Suzanne Mcleods or 2011's Carol Nelson Douglases-- though I *did* keep 2013's Patricia Briggs. Ah well: I grow old, and look for comfort, not work. This may be why people read romance or Regencies: goes down easy, always another one available; and with those genres, plenty of people to talk to about them.
