I had planned to go shopping that day, but found myself hanging out on the roof, until late. It is a great place to read. I like to sit facing the church while I read. Sometimes the city distracts me from my reading.
I experimented with horizontal video, knowing how much some people don’t like vertical video, but horizontal video just did not take in as much of the scene I wanted to show.
Even after it got too hot to hang out on the roof any longer, I went to my condo and spent the rest of the day reading and working on the blog. I am currently reading the Brother Cadfael books.
I guess it is because I have led such an exciting life, I don’t like action adventure movies and TV shows. I also don’t like first person shooter games. Exciting books are not quite as bad, because I can flip past the exciting parts. I like mystery novels that have a lot of thinking, scene setting, and little action. I have the bad habit of reading books over and over again, just to make sure that I don’t start reading something that could get me over excited before going to bed or sitting down to write. I love Agatha Christie and Rex Stout, but had gotten to the point where I would remember the whole plot of the books after reading a page or two. A friend suggested that I start reading them in spanish. I just might do that.
Several times lately I have tried out several different searches, trying to find mystery books, which met my needs. Finally, I must have hit on the right combo of words, or Google sussed out what I was after. I had never read the Brother Cadfael novels before. Now I am hooked on them. I am using an app “LIBBY” that lets me borrow books from my library in Honolulu, via my Kindle.
I have already read the first three books in the series and am reading Saint Peter’s Fair now.
