I should like to point out (which is why I am doing so) that I have a new widget on the sidebar called, Recent Books. I do read, after all. Not as much as I used to, but I'm still respectable. I have had many questions over the years regarding what I read, so now you can keep up if you so choose.
Another new addition to the sidebar is in the blogroll--zim life. DH has gone away. Alas!
