I still consider myself on a book-buying ban, believe it or not. All of these were library sale purchases. I decided it's OK to bring home a pile if I don't spend too much money on them and provided other books are going out the door (I really do have too many books). At $3.50 for the entire pile, I felt like that stack was fine for the budget. Group discussion books are a no-purchase exception, also. If I plan to be there, I'll buy the book.
Books finished since last Malarkey:
- When the Marquess Was Mine by Caroline Linden
Obviously, not my best reading week. I've had blurry vision (probably from sleep deprivation — I had a lot of weird nightmares that woke me up, last week) so I didn't read much. Things are still blurry, but I'm going to try to finish my current read by tonight.
- The House on Tradd Street by Karen White
I've wanted to read The House on Tradd Street for years, but it was the combination of the RIP Challenge and a new Tradd Street publication that got me to finally pick it up. I'm enjoying it. I've found it much more frightening than Joe Hill's Heart-Shaped Box. The heroine is a bit prickly for my taste, but I'm holding out hope that she'll soften up a bit.
Posts since last Malarkey:
- No Judgments by Meg Cabot (book review)

- Fiona Friday on the Wrong Day - Whose chair? (cat photo)
Fiona Friday on the Wrong Day was posted late because my mouse was dying and only worked off and on for about 2 or 3 days before we finally managed to buy a new one. What a relief to have a mouse that doesn't freeze up!!!
In other news:
I can't believe I did this: I've been anxiously awaiting the first episode of Chicago Fire and what did I do? Oops, didn't even turn the TV on, that night. I'm going to see if I can find it at the network's website.
There doesn't seem to be any image at all for The Royal, Season 6, but BritBox has just added 3 more seasons to their site. I've only watched one episode and probably won't watch it as often as I have been because I'm in the mood for something different (hence Glitch), but it was a very interesting episode, showing Dr. Jeff Goodwin in Biafra, where he had to dodge bombs and gunfire.
