There really is nothing like computer trouble to get the adrenaline going, is there?

You are hanging in there, despite the evil Internet!

Man, I hear you. All I want to be doing is reading or blogging, none of this rebooting business.

Jennie said...

I can't wait to see what you think of Sky Burial. It's been on my TBR pile for awhile, but I haven't heard much about it yet...

Keep up the good work!

Keep a'goin'! Nothing like flickering wi-fi signals to keep you alert ...

Augh, I hate struggling with technology; why can't it just do what it's designed to do?

Way to go, reader of the hour!

Glad you're still awake and reading! :)

Ouch, that is not good, that the internet is giving you problems. But then again, it is keeping you awake! Well done, for being reader of the hour!

I have another book by Xinran (which I haven't read) called The Good Women of China. Both that and Sky Burial sound interesting.
