"It's spring fever.... You don't quite know what it is you DO want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!" ~Mark Twain
Today I was going to blog about how I sometimes tire of sex being what sells the most, in the romance/women's fiction world of writing. But I don't really have the energy.
Then I thought, well, maybe I'll talk about the rock wall I'm rebuilding by hand - it runs along the back of our lawn, at the edge of the woods, and, like every other rock wall in this area, was used by farmers to mark property lines way back when. Except yesterday I dropped this really heavy rock on my middle finger of my right hand, and it's kind of hard to type with a finger that's black and blue and swollen to twice its size.
So instead I'll just say that I started a fascinating book this weekend: She's Not There, by Jennifer Finney Boylan. It's the memoir of the Colby College English Chair...who spent his entire life feeling "wrong" and so went through a sex change. Now he's a woman. It's gotten some great reviews, and I really can't wait to read it.
Hey, has anyone out there used http://www.goodreads.com/? One friend told me it's considered the new MySpace of book promotion. One more thing to add to my list...
