I made it to a 2 p.m. appointment, then went and worked at the secondhand bookstore for an hour or so. I put away some paperbacks and then straightened out the romance section. I said hi to S.G. I got a mystery by Victoria Thompson, Murder on Lexington Avenue. I have the first several in the series. I enjoy historical mysteries generally, and this series, the Gaslight Mysteries, in particular. It at first seemed that Sarah and Frank would have a romantic relationship, but that seemed to have fizzled out over the last few books, and I got discouraged.
I copy edited an article, and got the book The Golden Age of Gay Fiction. I figured I was never really going to save enough for the hardcover, so I got the e-book. It only comes in PDF and html. The writing is in two columns, which wouldn't be bad, but at 100%, the page is outside the margins of the computer screen. It's readable, if small, at 75%. Perhaps I'll try to figure out how to work the html. I think you can only read that online?
I went out to a popular local Italian restaurant that we go to frequently enough for a takeout dinner. I got steamed shrimp and manicotti. They were good.
I called S. before I went to the bookstore, to see what he was up to. He said he was going to start a double shift of his on-campus job in an hour, and that would take him up until 2:30 a.m. He'd probably be with his boyfriend in [nearby county] Friday and Saturday, he said. We discussed maybe getting together Sunday.
I'll post on what I read, but that's about it for the day.
