Monday Malarkey

I've been kind of a terrible blogger, lately, I know. I'm hoping that next week will be an improvement but today's Malarkey is going to be it for this week. We have very small family holidays but I like to be present rather than leaving the room to play on my laptop, so I'll be shutting down for Thanksgiving, this week, and return to blogging next Monday. And, then hopefully I'll have the fortitude to hit the reviews hard. I don't have all that many to write but I do have a backlog.

Recent arrivals:

  • The Good Daughter by Alexandra Burt - from Berkley for review
  • Setting Free the Kites by Alex George - from Putnam for review
  • The Mistake I Made by Paula Daly (not pictured because the mailman arrived late) - purchased

Books finished since last Malarkey:

  • Leveling the Playing Field: The Democratization of Technology by Rod Scher - There were a couple days I didn't read at all because I was so busy, this week, but I enjoyed reading Leveling the Playing Field when I found the time to read and finished it yesterday. 

Currently reading:

  • Setting Free the Kites by Alex George - I could not keep my mitts off this one, I was so excited. And, so far, it's amazing. I love Alex's writing.

Possibly set aside:

  • I Can't Begin to Tell You by Elizabeth Buchan - I haven't decided whether to go back to page 1 and reread the 50 pages I've read (I didn't touch this one, during the past week) or just set this one aside for a while. I really was struggling with it, a bit, but I'm not quite sure why. Maybe it's just the timing.

Posts since last Malarkey:

No reviews because last week was so crammed. I didn't manage to even open my F2F book, let alone make it to the meeting (and we're welcome to come, even if we haven't read the book).

In other news:

Huh. I thought of some other news to write, earlier, but I've gone blank. Oh, well. Better luck next week. Happy Thanksgiving to my American readers! See you next week!

  1. Have a great holiday weekend!

  2. Hope you had a great Thanksgiving, Nancy. We're down in TX visiting the kid. Long drive, but great to spend a few days relaxing with her and her boyfriend (and cute dog)!

    Glad you enjoyed Rod's book! Thanks for the stars on Goodreads! :)

    1. Yes, that is a long drive. I know the length of the drive to Lincoln from my hometown and to Dallas from the same spot. Add the two together and you had our drive beat. :) We went to OK (9 1/2 hours of driving). We had a terrific time.

      Rod's book is very entertaining! Like you, I wasn't quite sure what to expect but I liked it a lot. Hope to get it reviewed soon!!
