Da com thear gan to me heofencund Yisdom... Note to author: anyone with a basic knowledge of Chaucer would understand this, let alone Peter who will undoubtedly have read the Consolations anyway. Don't dumb him down.

By now we should be in the 1950s but it still feels like the 30s - the servants are too servile and, like Basil Fawlty, nobody's mentioning the War.

Sticking in minor bits of research that aren't needed for the plot is not delightfully whimsical.

"I don't think you mentioned what the codex is a manuscript of?" said Peter. "Some Dark Ages martyr called Boethius," said Troutbeck. Troutbeck is supposed to be an Oxford don with a D.Phil. My blood pressure is rising.

Today's arrivals:

- The Little Stranger by Sarah Waters (library)
- Late Scholar by Jill Paton Walsh (library)
- Land of Dreams by Kate Kerrigan (ARC, review for Historical Novel Society)
- Rue Royale by Jean-François Parot (review for HNS)

And this, my friends, is why I have trouble whittling down my TBR pile. Part commitment, part shiny object syndrome.

Ran a half marathon today so I'm sitting here with my ankles gently throbbing. On the whole I'd rather be in the armchair reading a book, but I also accepted a challenge to write 5K words...

The new Goodreads iOS app just landed on my iPhone. Really hoping I'll be able to read ALL comments, not just the first paragraph of those on the first page.

Goodreads needs a Currently Re-Reading button that shows up on your home page, with a counter of how many times you read the book.

I now have 900 adds for The House of Closed Doors. It's on giveaway - and I'd love to get 1,000 adds. These two things are not unrelated.

Note to self--next time, make sure you have enough audiobook hours left on the phone for traveling so you don't have to download over your parents' slow connection...

Weirdly, I seem to be getting a much greater response to the LibraryThing giveaway than to the Goodreads one. I may have to come up with a Goodreads ad...more work...

Back from the Historical Novel Society conference. Met some new authors to keep my eye on! There were also some academics in attendance, which was interesting. Lots of stuff to process.

Aha! LibraryThing finally has their September Early Reviewers list up, and The House of Closed Doors is on it. I always find I win books on LT whereas I never do on GR.

Jane is reading California
This is already proving enjoyable, although I'm pretty certain I'll want to kick either Frida or Cal soon.

Fantastic article about author ethics starring yours truly (oh the fame! for 5 minutes). Thanks for helping me get my thoughts together on these issues, GR friends.

TAKE THAT Goodreads challenge...finished 3 books today. Two of which I've been reading for about a year, I think...

Did Ruth want a fortress? The safety had an appeal. But the confinement?

Oh, please, Christ, won't you raise me a Lazarus? But she might wait milleniums on Christ. Gird yourself.

She'd let this happen. She'd overlooked his lapse in sense, her devotion like a stone bridge built rock by rock. This would make a wonderful movie.

"This bed is your bed. You made it." The words came through teeth she pressed together against their chatter. "Here all of us sleep and wake and eat and breathe. You can't unmake this bed."

What foolishness. Wasn't what waited beyond the fire's light the same as she'd seen in the day, unrecognizable for now, a joy tomorrow, just as Idaho would be? All in God's hand, a hand she knew but couldn't see. This faith, her constant companion.

I joined that Goodreads Authors group so I could comment on one particular discussion, but I had to get rid of the notifications. Why are we all marketing to each other? This is also why I don't do Twitter much.
