We Are the World Blogfest #WATWB

It’s the last Friday of the month–time again for some good news to take you into September with a smile.

The story I’ve chosen for this month is one that involves experimental technology that can take water droplets from the air and turn them into potable water. The process uses electrospun polymers–and who among us doesn’t love those??

Here’s how #WATWB works: On the last Friday of each month a number of bloggers participate in a blog hop in which each blogger highlights a story that spreads good news, happiness, and hope.

These are the cohosts for this month: Simon Falk, Andrea Michaels, Shilpa Garg, Sylvia Stein, and Belinda Witenhausen.

The Last Tuesday Book Roundup–and a Special Deal

It’s the last Tuesday of August (how did that happen??), so today’s post is about sharing what we’re reading. If you want to tell others about the book(s) you’re reading, feel free to share in the comments. You don’t have to write a lot–you can just tell us the title and author if you’d like. Or you can go further and tell us a little about the plot, review it, tell us about your favorite character, anything. The choice is yours.

I’m reading Cape May County, New Jersey: The Making of an American Resort Community by Jeffery M. Dorwart. I started reading it purely for research for one of the books I’m working on right now, Cape Island Menace, but I’m finding it fascinating. There’s so much about the history of the community where I live that I didn’t know. The book begins with the first Europeans who came to the area now known as Cape May County and tells about the Native Americans they encountered, what brought them here, and how they survived. That’s the part I’m most interested in right now, so I haven’t moved past that.

What are you reading?

And now for the deal I told you about:
