Spock Strange

book finished: The Extremes

I just finished The Extremes by Christopher Priest. I rate it a 6.
Teresa Simons was widowed when her husband, an FBI agent, was killed in a small Texas town by a gunman on a shooting spree.
Born in England, Teresa returns to the country in hopes of coming to terms with her loss. In the small town of Bulverton on the south coast, she discovers a shocking coincidence: Bulverton also suffered the horror of a lone gunman on a killing spree.
Both episodes of mass murder occurred on the same June day.
With no explanation for this mysterious coincidence, Teresa is drawn to the virtual-reality world of Extreme Experience. She had trained previously with ExEx for her own work in government intelligence, but nothing has prepared her for the new technology...or for the corresponding effects it will have.

I'm currently reading Califia's Daughters by Leigh Richards (Laurie R. King) and #19Amendment of Life by Catherine Aird.

So much for that plan...

I stopped at the grocery store specifically to buy the ingredients for the casseroles I was going to bake today. Instead, I fell asleep in my chair! Woke up and finished my book. No brownies, no casseroles, no cookies (which is what I was going to make tonight) and now it's bed time! I guess I'll try and start baking all of it tonight when I get up! There goes the first 4 hours of the night!
I'd also like to finish up the last 3 books in Catherine Aird's C. D. Sloan series before I go back to work Tuesday night.
