Other Than Reading...
Fall weather has really encouraged me to walk. I managed 10,000 steps most days this week. I also managed to take naps many days after school. I'm having a little bit of trouble adjusting to getting up at 5:30 AM so that I don't have to rush to get ready for school. Since I am decidedly not a morning person, this has been something of a strain.
I do like having my afternoons free this semester. I enjoy being able to fit in appointments without being the last one of the day for my doctor and dentist. This week I have my eye exam scheduled and am eager to pick out some new glasses. My current ones are getting rather scratched.
Read Last Week
Death Among Rubies by R. J. Koreto was an engaging historical mystery. Lady Frances Ffolkes and her loyal maid Mallow need to save the reputation of one of Frances's friends and also solve the murder of the friend's father. My review will be posted on October 8.
Follow Me by Tiffany Snow was a contemporary thriller with a unique main character. She is a computer genius who is also has OCD. It was a nicely twisty story. My review will be posted on October 5.

IQ by Joe Ide was a thriller set in East LA and starred the ghetto version of Sherlock Holmes. Isaiah is quite bright but allowed the hit-and-run death of his older brother to sidetrack him from any plans to escape his environment. He is determined to find the driver of the car that hit his brother and solves problems for people in the area to make ends meet while he searches. My review will be posted on Oct. 13.
