Weekly Update

Confession: While I have been reading a number of manuscripts this week, I am behind on my “finished book” reading as I have succumbed to Olympic watching. Yes, I have fallen down an Olympic rabbit hole; seriously, last night I was holding my breath at the 9.5’ drop onto the Snowboard Cross where just watching is both terrifying and thrilling. I can read 1,040 pages upside down. Does that qualify as a sport? How about reading while running on a treadmill? Okay, walking on the treadmill, slowly, while flipping pages on my iPad quickly. Gold medal to me?
