Shameless Self-promotion Sunday

It’s time for some winter weather here in East Alabama; time also for winter holidays. Since I’ve been off-duty from classes, I’ve taken some time to get away for a little while from the reading I have to do, and on to some of the reading that I’ve wanted to do; also some preparatory writing for the comments that I’m slated to deliver at next month’s Molinari Society session at APA Eastern Division in Baltimore. (We’ll be talking about the rights of refugees; and of immigration more broadly.) I have a novel to read that I’ve just started in on and some long-simmering tech projects I’ve been getting caught back up with. And as always I am trying to keep in practice with my Portuguese, Spanish and German.

If this is a time for catching up, it is a time also for Shamelessness. Happy Sunday to all, and I hope you know what to do: What have you been up to lately? Got anything big coming up? Anything you’ve been working on? Write anything? Leave a link and a short description for your post in the comments. Or fire away about anything else you might want to talk about.

Rad Geek, to-day:

WHAT I’M READING: My weekend reads this weekend are mostly history, on the antebellum South and race and Texas and Tejanidad. More to come on that later. In the meantime though, also some reading on Tolkien and fantasy literature:

Shameless Self-promotion Sunday Strikes Back

I’ve been out and about the last few Sundays, so I’ve been recreant to my duties on this blog. If it’s any excuse, this is where we were a couple of Sundays ago:[1]

Here's a view of the Smoky Mountains, wreathed in mist.

But what about you, gentle reader? What have you been up to lately? What have you been working on? Got anything big coming up? Anything you’ve written lately? Leave a link and a short description for your post in the comments. Or fire away about anything else you might want to talk about.

Don’t hold back. Let’s get Shameless again.

  1. [1]Hot Springs, North Carolina. We went camping in the Smokies for our anniversary that weekend; most of the time was spent hiking and staying in a tent around Cades Cove, Tenn., but on the way back we stopped off to stay at a Bed & Breakfast and see Hot Springs, the town where my grandmother grew up and went to school.

Return of Revenge of Shameless Self-promotion Sunday

What I’ve been reading today: Jonathan Spence, The Search for Modern China

It’s a beautiful May day in the bright, sunny South. And it’s been a spell but I’ve been trying to keep things a bit more active once again here at the Rad Geek People’s Daily, and I feel like the time is right for a return to Shamelessness.

So, gentle reader, what have you been up to lately? What have you been working on? Got anything big coming up? Anything you’ve written lately? Leave a link and a short description for your post in the comments. Or fire away about anything else you might want to talk about.

Don’t hold back. Let’s get Shameless again.
