So the Kindle Fire is mine. I'm a touch screen technology luddite so I'm feeling my way around it. It is definitely bigger and heavier than the Kindle. Granted it's not meant to be a Kindle but a tablet. So we'll see.
I have Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. to watch tonight and maybe The Voice. Otherwise I may be playing with my new toy. I'm going to put Netflix and maybe a game on it. The book reading is ok, again, I'm used to smaller and lighter and not touch technology so I'm not great at it yet.
From the library and about to be started, I have THROUGH THE EVIL DAYS by Julia Spencer-Fleming. This is 8th of 8 in series featuring Clare Fergusson, a newly-ordained Episcopal priest, and Russ Van Alstyne, Chief of Police, in Millers Kill, New York. Here is a description:
On a frigid January night, Chief of Police Russ Van Alstyne and Reverend Clare Fergusson are called to the scene of a raging fire. The extent of the tragedy isn't known until the next day, when the charred remains of a man and woman are recovered—along with evidence showing they were shot execution style. The last thing Russ needs are two potential homicides. He's struggling with the prospect of impending fatherhood, and his new wife is not at all happy with his proposal for their long-delayed honeymoon: a week ice-fishing at a remote Adirondack lake. St. Alban's Church is still in turmoil over the Reverend Clare Fergusson's news that she's five and a half months pregnant—but only two and a half months married. Worried her post-deployment drinking and drug use may have damaged the baby, she awaits the outcome of the bishop's investigation into her "unpriestly" behavior: a scolding, censure, or permanent suspension. Officer Hadley Knox is having a miserable January as well. Her on-again, off-again lover, Kevin Flynn, has seven days to weigh an offer from the Syracuse Police Department that might take him half a state away. And her ex-husband's in town—threatening to take custody of their kids unless Hadley pays him off with money she doesn't have. When Hadley discovers that the dead couple fostered an eight-year-old girl who was a recent liver donee, the search for the killer takes on a new and terrible urgency. With no access to immunosuppressant drugs, transplant rejection will kill the girl in a matter of days. As a deadly ice storm downs power lines and immobilizes roads, Russ and Clare search desperately for the truth about the missing child, but the hunters will become the hunted when they are trapped in the cabin beside the frozen lake and stalked through the snowbound woods by a killer.
It was published in November 2013 and has 368 pages.
It warmed up today into the 20s but now it's snowing again and they say 1 to 3 inches expected.
So, I really just wanna hunker down and play ... and nap wouldn't hurt.
