Most of my reviews this month were for short stories, both from the American Girls About Town book that I finished and of course The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction. The remainder of my reading is divided up evenly between the books I'm reading with my children and mysteries. The last twenty per cent goes to general fiction, non-fiction and one fantasy novel.

Hey I have the same problem myself. I was trying to drop some EC's few minutes ago, I brought up 10 blogs at a time and 6 out 10 loaded the Google page instead. I didn't know my site also does the same. I wonder what's happening.

Whatever the problem was with Google seems to be fixed.

I have to be to keep this blog updated in a timely fashion. I only have a few minutes a day free to accomplish everything I want to do.
