{Sunday Post} — A Kim Jong-Il Production, Blind Fall, and The Scarlatti Inheritance

The Caffeinated Book Reviewer's Kimberly hosts a weekly meme called "The Sunday Post"! 

* Weekly Tidbits * 

  • I didn't have a functional toilet or shower until Friday morning. That is how long it took to reach a plumber. Either they didn't return calls or texts or were booked. The plumber that did show up was the one I had hired last month. The problem is around fifty to sixty feet into the yard; I don't know if it's a movement in the ground, a tree root, or the cold. The plumber will return after he has his camera back from the shop, which is currently in the shop. Concrete is expensive; I hope the issue is in the yard rather than the driveway.

  • Do you not find it annoying when a doctor tells you that you will receive test results in 24 to 48 hours, but in reality, it takes 4 to 5 days? Anyway, the good news is that my father does not have a blood clot; he has cellulitis caused by some form of trauma. What trauma? Perhaps a vehicle accident on Thanksgiving Eve left him hobbling, but he declined to see an EMT. Stubborn? Yep! Meanwhile, he's taking a second antibiotic, which appears to be helping.

What Am I Currently Reading?

It was a stressful week for me, and reading was not a high priority for me. Despite the mayhem, I managed to read three chapters in Patrick Stewart's Making It So.

What's New on the Shelf?

My days are jumbling together, but if my memory serves me well, I went to the thrift store on Tuesday because it was closed on Monday for Martin Luther King Jr. Day. The book section has shrunk significantly. I only picked one book, a Robert Ludlum omnibus with the novels The Scarlatti Inheritance, The Osterman Weekend, The Matlock Papers, and The Gemini Contenders.

I paid $2 at the library for Christopher Rice's Blind Fall. I picked up A Kim Jong-Il Production by Paul Fischer at Dollar Tree; it had been sitting there for about a year. I had given it a couple of glances but had always put it back. I can't explain it, but something told me to go ahead and get it this time.
