Monday so far

I turned off the computer at 11:00 p.m.  I sat up rereading "There's Something Magic About It," which is a fantasy modern-day Musketeers fic with magic.  I went to bed around 1:00 a.m., and I don't think it took me long to get to sleep.  I woke at 8:30 a.m. for no apparent reason.  Jules put on her LJ that "One Size Fits All" was free on Smashwords with a coupon.  I already had it, but I gave it as a gift to PaperMoon.  I looked at the other free-with-a-coupon books, and got a variety of them.  I looked at the book bargains from BookBub, too.  There was a m/m one about cycling that looked interesting, but it wasn't free.  I will put on the Backlot's "Free Books and Sales Events" thread, though, as I did with "One Size Fits All."

Later: I went out and about.  I went to a Dunkin' Donuts for the first time in a long while and asked if they had cronuts.  I have been curious about those.  They did not.  I just got a bottle of water.  It is 95 F out.  I made it to an appointment.  I texted a little with WhiteSheepCBD.  She said that the third book of the Queen's Musketeers series would be coming out soon.  The series starts with We Feared to Fly.  It's an interesting AU of an AU.  The self-injury was warned for, so I can't complain of not expecting it.  It was really not to my taste, though.  Otherwise, I wanted to find out what happened to that group of characters.

Later still: I chatted with WhiteSheepCBD for a while.  I encouraged her to watch "Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell."  She said she didn't have time to read a book that was more than 800 pages.  I said it read pretty quickly, but she doesn't have uninterrupted hours to concentrate in.  I wrote to Pred to say I had read the book and seen the first six episodes.  I don't know who she'd pair up in a slash fic, as she said she wouldn't split a happily married couple.  I will find out sooner or later.
