Crucible of Gold - Naomi Novick

 

Temeraire to S America. wish it were longer. good solid character & world building.
Lead to several discussions on the alternative to the outright conquest of the Americas. this brings out the question of whether the plague that hit the dragons in the earlier books was merely the mirror of what happened to the Incas.
certainly reminds us that inbreeding populations results in dangerous susceptibility to disease. also a good lesson on how one of the biggest changes to civilization is the availability of vaccines.

Timeless -Gail Carriger
the last of the Parasol Protectorate series.  I enjoyed this quite as much as the others. not quite the head long rush we've seen before but a good wrap-up of all the main points. I've seen some complaints about the unevenness of the English dialects used, but that didn't bother me. It is written for American steam punk enthusiasts after all.

the two cashmere girls didn't start to blow their coats until they had at least one minute more daylight than dark. I typically get one good brushing each of the bulk of their coat for the year, then they manage to rub the rest off on any spot that makes a good scratching post.

not doing so good on the posting so far. weather can't decide what it wants to do. couple of the horses, the two youngest mares, had snotty noses. after a week of sulfa drugs both are better.
DH tore out the bath/shower and is working on new shower. this would go faster if he'd called plumbers before he needed them to come.
finished off a Jim Butcher Dresden book the end of the year,Turncoat.
started off the year with Mercedes Lackey's 500 kingdoms books which are new to me. read two, The Sleeping Beauty & Beauty and the Werewolf. both with solid characters and interesting world-building. why haven't I run across these before now?

I want to try to get some writing done this year. since I have a new phone, I might as well use it.
today is clear, cool & all the critters are fuzzy.

I'm trying out the new app for the Droid, so we have a litany of unexpected consequences. when I took the pic of the lily, i didn't realize it would upload it as an edit to the previous post, rather than make a new post. not sure if this is a bug or a feature
