Aaaah, vacation
The Raven in the Foregate - Ellis Peters
Becoming - Michelle Obama

I've been pretty busy the last week and a half or so, getting ready to be off work next week! As of yesterday, I had 9 days of freedom.

 

My daughter arrived home from far away last Wednesday, so we've been having lots of nice quiet times, chatting, drinking coffee, watching Christmas movies and just generally hanging out. My son's job finished up last Thursday - he is a teaching assistant at a music school, and their terms coincide with the school calendar, so he is off until January. My husband's temporary job for Lego ends next week. All in all, the MR household is festive indeed!

 

I am planning to get to some of the Tasks this week - I've fallen behind. But I did update the Open Doors thread on the Discussion Group with all of the Tasks, if you've been wondering if that would happen! And now, I am off to my reading place to hang out with Brother Cadfael for a bit - I've just started The Raven in the Foregate.

 

I also bought the audiobook of Michelle Obama narrating her memoir, Becoming, which is just delightful so far! It fits at least a couple of the Tasks, so I need to find the time to listen to it before the end of the year!

Task 1: St. Nick book wish list

Dear St. Nick:

 

I have many bookish wishes for the holiday season. Some of them will be admittedly easier than others.

 

1. A complete set of the 130 books published by Persephone Books and all 687 Virago Modern Classics. In print and ebook formats please. I know this is a lot of books, so I will also need a few additional bookshelves.

 

2.  For someone to discover a trove - say a minimum of ten - Superintendent Battle/Colonel Race/stand-alone mysteries written by Agatha Christie between 1930 and 1945, previously undiscovered in a trunk in someone's country house.

 

3. A solid adaptation of the Mary Russell/Sherlock Holmes mysteries to be released on either Amazon or Netflix.

 

4. And, while we're talking adaptations here, the Amazon Middle Earth adaptation had better be amazing.

 

5. Since my visit to Memphis, Tennessee, it occurs to me that someone - and specifically an author of color since I'm not interested in a white washed version - needs to write a well-researched historical saga about the intersection of rock and roll and the civil rights movement on Beale Street from the perspective of the African-American community. Somewhere there is an author who can do it justice and I want to read this book (or, better yet this series of books).

 

I've always believed in you.

Amazon -- https://amzn.to/2PhfbT1 will be FREE on #KindleUnlimited

 

 

 

It’s finally my time. I am an outlaw. The son of Abel Hellock. The legacy of my club. They all called me too sweet for the life. My club was losing faith in me and the entire organization. I had to prove to them and myself that I was the man my father would have wanted me to be. When the holidays rolled around, I was more Scrooge than Jolly Saint Nick. That is until she tested me: a girl that I didn’t know but I needed to protect. I wasn’t prepared for how my life was about to change. But if there is one thing I have learned from being in my organization: you have to be ready for anything. I am Collin Hellock and this is my story.
