Posts since last week's Tuesday Twaddle ('cause I blanked and missed Monday):
- More Minis - Big Fish by Daniel Wallace, Doreen by Barbara Noble, The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien (book reviews)
- Fiona Friday - Book love. I get that. (cat photo)
Once again, not a big blogging week. I just haven't been feeling it, lately. Husband said -- during a moment in which I wondered aloud if I should even bother at all -- "Why stop? If you just write when you feel like it, you've got a reading journal." Husbands can be surprisingly helpful.
Books finished since last week:
- Dancing with Mistletoe by Leslie Wells (novella)
- The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo
Arrivals since last week:
- John Halifax, Gentleman by Dina Maria Mulock - from HarperPerennial Legacy for review
- Shovel Ready by Adam Sternbergh - purchased
- Ghost Town by Richard W. Jennings - via Paperback Swap
- The Autobiography of Eleanor Roosevelt - Update on this one: I've been reading it off and on for at least a couple weeks. It's wonderful. Although a lot of the names were probably familiar to people when she wrote it and are not familiar to me (the wealthy, politically positioned and famous), I don't bother worrying about who's who. I just enjoy the anecdotes and the view from inside politics in a different time period. It's a fascinating read but it will take me some time to finish.
- Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty - Recommended by Michele of A Reader's Respite and purchased in e-book form (shock!!!) when it went on sale at a price I thought I could swallow (I still don't feel right spending more than a few dollars for an electronic book). Loving this one, so far. Michele gives excellent recommendations.
None. And, not much in the way of TV, either. We drove up to Memphis to look for a new pan at the Williams-Sonoma outlet store (all our old non-stick pans are losing their surfaces) and then stopped for a couple hours at Kiddo's to take him out for an early birthday dinner and give him some gifts on Saturday. On Sunday we spent the day cleaning/purging. That book I finished on tidying (mentioned above)? Seriously helpful. I wrote about it on Goodreads the moment I finished and will repeat that review, here, tomorrow.
