The Sunday Post AKA What’s on my (Mostly Virtual) Nightstand 7-24-22

After a couple of successful – meaning relatively quiet – supervised visits by the incumbent clowder, Luna and Tuna were officially released into the general population of household cats Thursday evening. As World War III has not yet occurred, this is considered a successful introduction.

In celebration, here’s a picture of George and Tuna comparing whatever it is cats measure when they meet. George’s tail is longer, but Tuna’s is magnificent in its own way. They are both certainly VERY big bois!

Back to books – always a popular subject at chez Reading Reality. After a couple of less than successful books – or at least books that may be popular with plenty of other readers but did not float my boat AT ALL, I decided to dive back into the virtually towering TBR pile a little more this week. The recent death of Eric Flint inspired me to take a look back at his marvelous Ring of Fire series – hence tomorrow’s review of the first book therein, 1632. And I was just in the mood for another hard-boiled mystery, which lead me back to Flavia Albia’s cynical view of Imperial Rome and Deadly Election – a title that is almost a bit too apropos in our troubled times as well as hers.

  1. I’m here for books AND cats so I enjoy the updates. I’m glad that L&T have been released from solitary and are getting along in gen pop. 😀

    Looking forward to the 1632 review since I’ve always been curious about the series. I own the book, but I’ve been hesitant to start for many reasons. Some of these older books just don’t hold up for me these days and I’m really not in the mood for more WTF-ery right now.
