Monday Malarkey

All of this week's arrivals were purchased by moi. I definitely need to read faster. 

This week's arrivals:

  • The Chimes by Anna Small 
  • Don't Even Think About It: Why Our Brains Are Wired to Ignore Climate Change by George Marshall (recommended by eldest son, who has heard the author speak)
  • Tales of Accidental Genius: Stories by Simon Van Booy (purchased 'cause I buy everything Simon writes, of course!)

Posts since last week's malarkey:

Books finished since last week:

  • The Dust that Falls from Dreams by Louis de Berni√®res - Totally fell in love with this book, a story of love, war, and friendship.

Currently reading:

  • Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline (rereading for F2F discussion)
  • Sherlock Chronicles by Steve Tribe (will be reading this for quite some time)

NaNo update:

Yesterday was the first day I've taken off from writing since NaNoWriMo began. I'm a terrible sleeper and was feeling the effects of a rough night, so I decided to just pay bills, do a little housework, and take a nap. Fortunately, today I met my goal for the day.

In other news:

Oh, hmm, I guess that's about it. Hopefully, I'll get around to watching the second episode of Sherlock, tonight, so I can move on to reading about the third one in Sherlock Chronicles. I love that book. Seriously, if you're a Sherlock fan, you must track down a copy.

Since I'm done writing, I'm off to read a bit. Maybe hang out with my little fur sweethearts.

  1. Your day sounds absolutely perfect. I like those kinds of days best. I'm glad you're keeping up with NaNo. Have a great week!

    1. It was pretty terrific. I met my word goal, did some housework, read 100 pages of Orphan Train and, yep, both kitties decided to hang out with me while I read. It's muggy and storms are coming, but we've definitely hit cuddle season, so they've either been climbing on my legs or snuggling up together. I love that. :)

      Thanks! Hope you have a terrific week, too!
