Friday so far

I went to bed probably around 3:00 a.m., after texting with A. from a little after midnight until close to 2:30 a.m.  I woke at 9:00 a.m., went back to sleep, and woke at 11:00 a.m.

I met up with P. at the library a little before 2:00 p.m.  We went to Wal-Mart.  I got printer ink and paper, and CD labels.  P. got a bathing suit.  She's going to Las Vegas with Z. and they're going to stay at the Flamingo.  There's a pool there.  I told P. she should take lots of pictures.

We came back to the house, and she showed me various things she does on her iPad.  She showed me family pictures, of her niece's new baby, and of her aunts, uncles, cousins, sisters, and C. and Ms. F.  We worked on the desktop computer.  She wanted to know about writing up a resume, and we wrote a sample one for her.  We tried to figure out how to get her iPad to sync up with the iTunes on my computer, but we really would have needed J. for that.  I have two or three more "home sharing" spots left.  She was using wireless, so I'm sure there was a way to work it.

We stopped at Boston Market on the way back to her apartment.  Boston Market used to be called Boston Chicken, but they diversified into turkey and ham as well.

It was a nice day today, so we had the windows open.

I got another couple of books from Dear Author's Daily Deals.  One was free and one was 99 cents.  One was "New Adult," which is between YA and adult.  Apparently the characters are usually in their early twenties.

Later: I read a bit of Raising Ryann.  It looks like it's a self-published book.  Dear Author seems to have a mix of self-published books and more traditionally published books in their deals.

I also got the Barnes & Noble book that had been free last Friday -- I forgot to check -- and was $2.99 this week.  It's titled A White Wind Blew.  It's set at a tuberculosis sanatorium during a 1920s tuberculosis epidemic.  I'm a few chapters in.  That was published by Sourcebooks, which seems to be an independent publisher.  The book got Library Journal, Publishers Weekly and Booklist reviews, and Mom said she'd ordered books from Sourcebooks for the library, so it seems to be a traditionally published book as well as having e-book formats.

Later still: I did some beta reading.
