- Leveling the Playing Field by Rod Scher - Received from Les of Prairie Horizons for review (her husband's latest book!)
- An Introvert's Guide to Drinking Alone by Tasha Brandstatter - Bought to support our very own Tasha, book blogger and cocktail blogger and contributor to Book Riot and other publications. I already read this and will tell you about it, soon.
Books finished since last Malarkey:
- Safe from the Sea by Peter Geye (link to review in Last week's posts, below)
- Goodbye, Mr. Chips by James Hinton - My classic choice of the month, originally written for sale to a magazine, probably technically novella length.
- An Introvert's Guide to Drinking Alone by Tasha Brandstatter - A quick, informative read that pretty much had me convinced I need to take up drinking for my health (but I probably never will).
- A Square Meal by Ziegelman and Coe - I'll be reading this one for a while. I just pick it up and read a chapter whenever I get the urge. It's truly fascinating but not the kind of book you gobble up in an afternoon.
- Modern Girls by Jennifer Brown - Just started reading, last night. This is a second attempt. The first time I picked it up, I was in the mood for something deeper. This time, it's the right book for the moment.
I've gotten quite a few offers to review, lately, and I confess to having ignored them all - even the ones that appeal to me. I like not tripping over books and my time away from blogging really helped me clear up those piles that were lying about everywhere. So, I hope that I'll be extremely discriminating. I've really enjoyed reading off my own shelves, lately.
Last week's posts:
- July Reads in Review, 2016 (everything I read in July, in brief)
- If You Liked The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society . . . (a book recommendation)
- Fiona Friday: The Princess is Bemused (cat photo)
- Safe from the Sea by Peter Geye (book review)
I don't expect to post so frequently every week, but I guess it was just one of those weeks that I felt like jabbering.
I hear it's International Cat Day, so here's a collage of the kitties, taken today:
Love those sweet faces.
