Where my mind wanders when I can’t sleep
• Did I use the £ symbol on the United Kingdom posts and the $ symbol on the United States posts today? If the British use 99p for 99 pence; why doesn’t the United States use 99c for 99 cents?
• Is gluten-free really the answer to every person’s health and diet woes? Am I wrong to practice “Give us this day our daily bread” and enjoy it?
• What publishers are going to merge next? The big players are eyeing each other; trying to find a suitable dance partner. No one wants to be a wallflower because then they will have to declare they can go it alone. It’s Victorian drama all over again.
• Why do so many teen and young adult books dwell on dark subjects such as death, abuse, destructive behavior and broken relationships? Teen fiction needs to foster adventure, growth, unlimited potential, achievement and hope.
• Will I live long enough to read even 20% of the books on my Kindle?
