I had a very busy week, between hanging out with grandson Noah, who is on summer vacation now, and purging my bookshelves. Here are some boxes I filled from my shelves.
I thoroughly enjoyed my blogging and reading, in between these activities. Here’s what went on at my blogs.

Is This Tomorrow? (e-book), by Caroline Leavitt
In 1956, Ava Lark rents a house with her twelve-year-old son, Lewis, in a desirable Boston suburb. Ava is beautiful, divorced, Jewish, and a working mom. She finds her neighbors less than welcoming. Lewis yearns for his absent father, befriending the only other fatherless kids: Jimmy and Rose. One afternoon, Jimmy goes missing. The neighborhood—in the throes of Cold War paranoia—seizes the opportunity to further ostracize Ava and her son.
Years later, when Lewis and Rose reunite to untangle the final pieces of the tragic puzzle, they must decide: Should you tell the truth even if it hurts those you love, or should some secrets remain buried?
Today I’m reading a book I borrowed from the library: Stay, by Deb Caletti. I thoroughly enjoyed He’s Gone, which I read a couple of weeks ago.
What was your week like? What’s coming up for you? I hope you’ll stop by to chat.
