The Sunday Post AKA What’s on my (Mostly Virtual) Nightstand 9-3-23

Last week I was not exactly in the village of Running-on-Time when I put the Sunday Post together and I neglected to include a cat picture. Therefore, this week’s picture includes not one but two cats. As an added treat, it’s a picture of the very rare sighting of Hecate and Luna co-existing peaceably and in proximity. They don’t really fight the way the boys do, they just generally refuse to occupy the same space at the same time. The kitty television outside the windows must have been particularly good that day!

This was the first week in quite a while where the books I thought I was going to read were the books I actually read. This coming week is probably the same, if only because there are only three of them. Galen is continuing his series of holiday guest posts tomorrow for Labor Day, and there’s a blog hop on Thursday.

Friday’s book is the second book in the Star Trek: Department of Temporal Investigations series, after the previously reviewed Watching the Clock. It’s the kind of book I normally pick up at the last minute because I’m desperate – or at least desperately flailing – but this time it’s a deliberate choice because Friday, September 8 is Star Trek Day. I thought about reading more of the Star Trek Autobiographies series (I loved The Autobiography of James T. Kirk, after all) but I’m feeling a bit weirded out by them now because they were all published before Star Trek: Picard and Star Trek: Strange New Worlds happened. Which means those ‘autobiographies’ have been superseded by events that were not yet revealed when they were written. Which led me back to the Department of Temporal Investigations because even though some of those events may have been superseded by later reveals, we wouldn’t know anyway because the whole point of the Department is to smooth over that kind of thing. And the first book was  oodles of fun, so I expect a good reading time no matter what.

  1. MY obsessive self was grateful to hear you say “the first week in awhile where the books I thought I was going to read were the ones I actually read”…..that is me! I feel like I love this stacking the shelves to promote books but actually getting around to them doesn’t happen often. I totally understand!

    1. Some weeks just don’t work the way we thought they would, do they? This week has also turned out to be different from what was expected, as a blog hop appeared on my radar after this post was up and I’m absolutely there for it. C’es la reading vie – very, very much!

    1. Kitty TV – or doggie TV – is a VERY important feature of a human house. George spends literally hours on the screened in back porch watching EVERY SINGLE THING the next door neighbors do in their driveway. He stands up on the back of HIS chair (it is his, just ask him) so that he can see it all!
