what's making me happy this week - july 6-12, 2015

* Feedly (feedly.com)

I read a fair amount of blogs and/or websites and going through them site by site is a pain. I finally found feedly, which combines all the RSS feeds into one feed in my feedly account. It also has an iOS app. I now find that I'm actually reading less articles, but reading the articles I want to read more. Recommended.

* 1632, by Eric Flint

The first book in Eric Flint's series about a West Virginia town that is transported back to 1632 Germany in the midst of the Thirty Years War. It's a fun enjoyable read that actually has some political and social aspects as well, as a bunch of Americans assimilate (or *don't* assimilate) into seventh-century near-feudal Europe. I'm using it as a palate cleanser when I struggle with my Hugo reading.
