The Sunday Post AKA What’s on my (Mostly Virtual) Nightstand 12-29-19

Sunday Post

Welcome to the final Sunday Post of 2019. And the unofficial final post of the 2010s. Yes, I know the decade technically ends on 12/31/2020, but it just doesn’t feel that way, does it?

I’ve been following the “Taj Mahal of dumpster fires” in Romancelandia over the holidays and the hashtag #RWAShitShow pretty much sums it up. It’s a train wreck. Or a multi-car pileup on the Highway, complete with gazer block. I can’t turn my eyes away either. If you want more on this I’ve included links in my posts Friday and yesterday. And here are a couple more, a terrific summary at All About Romance and a thoughtful and personal commentary by Nora Roberts. (THANKS Arlene for the tip!)

But back to real life – or at least real blogging life. And real reading life and not just obsessively checking twitter. This past week included Xmas and most of Hanukkah, which ends tomorrow. This week is New Year’s, which doesn’t feel quite real at the moment as we’re thinking about turning on the A/C or at least running all the fans. Life goes on.

Happy New Year!
