Apparently I did not notice when June became July. I've been busy and I've been ill. Not a good combination for the brain. Nor the impulse control.

Bought two books:

* The Final Reveille by Amanda Flower (a contemporary mystery set at a living history museum where an American Civil War reenactment is taking place; publisher also publishes a friend of mine)

* Of Noble Family by Mary Robinette Kowal (historical fantasy novel, #5 in a series, I think -- I own all the others)

Need to slow down or stop. If I've had an extra shift or a couple of extra hours at work, I've bought a book or DVD at the bookstore with the extra money.

Except it's not extra. I'm coded for a certain number of hours a week. If my average creeps above that because of helping people by taking their shifts, or because management needs me to work more on a day, management will arbitrarily cut my hours in future weeks below the number I'm coded.

Pretty sure my workplace is not on any "best places to work" list these days..... It makes me wonder if employers who treat their employees with a modicum of respect exist anywhere in today's world.

One purchase, because I like the time period and the author's on one of my yahoogroups: The Tide Watchers by Lisa Chaplin (Napoleonic Wars era historical fiction).
