Happy Easter, Sunday Saloners, and welcome to another day of chatting about bookish things.
It’s very dark here still, as I’m up quite early. Usually I post this on Saturday night, but for some reason, I fell into bed, read awhile, and then slept.
Are you ready with your coffee or favorite beverage? Yes? Okay, then, let’s talk.
This past week was spring break for the kiddies, so I spent some time with two of the grandkids. We had some fun, although mostly Noah played with video games and Fiona did some drawing. She loves art. We watched some movies.
Fiona also offered her point of view as I rearranged furniture in my dining room. Yes, I was tired of how cramped it felt and got the bright idea that if I moved the taller country cupboard into the corner, and brought another one over near the area closer to the kitchen…well, I did it. And I like it a lot.
Of course I had to take the books and knick-knacks out of the cupboards, a somewhat tedious process….
Here’s the finished view from the kitchen.
I shared this one and a couple others in Saturday Snapshot yesterday.
The rest of the week I spent reading…and also did a bit of blogging.
Midweek found me writing Hump Day Potpourri: Mugs, Memories, & Bookish Thoughts; and on that same day, I posted my review of Whole Latte Life, by Joanne DeMaio. I read it in February, but it is on blog tour this month.
More Books-Click Titles/Covers for Reviews:
1. The Secret Garden (e-book), by Frances Hodgson Burnett
2. Matrimony, by Joshua Henkin
3. Arranged, by Catherine McKenzie
I’m still reading the fourth book I selected for the week. I might finish it today, depending on what else is going on.
American Pastoral, by Philip Roth (it won the Pulitzer Prize!), is a very meaty story of the head of an American family and the “daughter who transports him out of the longed-for American pastoral and into everything that is its antithesis….”
This is not a quick, light read…but I’m enjoying it.
So that’s my week in a nutshell…what was yours like? I hope you’ll come on by and share….
