    Soaking it would be more like it. At around six years old, my phone is an antique in cell phone years.

    I’m not reading it, but I did
    Good Omens

    I’m watching it on Amazon Prime
    And it translates well, IMHO

    Read the book first though
    Which is highly recommended
    Come on...Neil Gaiman & Terry Pratchett!!

    They made a show on it, it’s gotta be good.

    I'm debating starting The Mercy Seat by Rilla Askew. I like westerns well enough, but this one might have too much religion for my taste.

    Rila Askew loves imagery; I wonder if she also writes poetry. The Mercy Seat was disappointing, mostly because Askew never makes the reader really care about any of the characters. The surprise ending probably didn't surprise anyone. It does dangle the possibility of a sequel (which I haven't checked for, and won't).

    The Tenderness of Wolves, by Stef Penney.

    Yet another author who introduces too many character and subplots, and then ends the book without wrapping up the loose ends. Are publishers scared to tell authors to write a better ending?

    The Collected Stories of Eudora Welty,
    published by Barnes & Noble.

    This collection doesn't include Welty's novels, just her short stories. I've just started, still reading some of her early works, it should be interesting to follow how her writing changes over the years.

    I just finished "Unintended Consequences" by John Ross. I'm starting to re-read "Old Man's War" by John Scalzi.
