Am losing brain cells and memories at a great rate. Early risings, maybe, though I don't rise that early and it's not hot. Busyness or age; am so busy I haven't managed to do laundry since the weekend.

The swimming pool has produced two more zucchini while my back was turned. Luckily the s-i-l turns out to love zucchini. The mystery vines have produced three great yellow flowers; I'm hoping they're the buttercup squash.

What have you just finished reading?
Broken Homes. Not a cliff-hanger, a very intriguing twist, and I look forward to the next volume with great anticipation.

Also this time I *did* note what mysteries he left unanswered. Go me.

ETA: those who will read at a later date and wish to approach the work completely unspoiled might be better skipping the comments here, that unavoidably let slip a few details of the action.

What are you reading now?
Parasol Protectorate 4, having bought 5 by mistake on Monday.

What will you read next?
Parasol 5, no doubt. I see, while looking for something else, that solaas recommended this to me three years ago as an exemplar of steampunk, which it is. I can make no sense of the steampunk science, but it *sounds* convincing.

Bonus: What have you abandoned reading?
Death Comes to Pemberley, I'm pretty sure.
