Computers -- Sigh

Microsoft Security full scans usually take about thirteen hours on my tiny computer. The record was - and I am not exagerating - thirty seven hours. However, the one  I ran today had a record time: only five and a half hours. Way to go, Microsoft!

Now if I can just figure out how to make comments on other people's blogs... if anybody out there, especially Elizabeth, can enlighten me as to how I can comment on people's blogs, please, please do so! Computers/technology don't like me. Can anybody relate?

I had a great day yesterday promoting Darkwoods with my friend Selah. The first private bookstore we went to looked smaller than my bedroom from the outside, but inside it was a labyrinth of bookshelves stacked all the way to the ceiling. Selah's eyes got dreamy and she spent forty-five minutes floating among the books while I talked with the owner. I later apologized that it was so boring, and she said, "Marta, there were books! It wasn't boring at all!"
