**Mailbox Monday is hosted at the home site: Mailbox Monday.
And let’s join Kathryn, our leader in It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?, at Book Date.
The week flew by, with lots of errands and various activities, and a nice visit with my granddaughter Fiona yesterday when she came over to use my computer. I even sent her The Rules of Magic for her Kindle app. I love this photo of her.
I wasn’t that focused on the temperatures this week, as my mind was with the wildfires in Napa, Santa Rosa, and the Bay Area north of here…and horrified by the devastation. What a year we all have had, with hurricanes, wildfires, and mass shootings!
Great books saved me, as I read and reviewed 3 enticing ones, bringing my Read the Books You Buy total to 90. One of the books I read was a review book, and it was just what I needed: a feel-good story with great characters. The others were a mystery and a drama centered around secrets and lies.
I did get in some exercise….and did some shopping, including a trip to the phone store where I upgraded my iPhone. I’m enjoying it. At Barnes & Noble, I used a gift card won during Bloggiesta…thanks, Laurie, at Bay State Reader’s Advisory.
I also binge-watched Big Little Lies, and seeing the episodes one after the other was powerful. I even saw some things I didn’t quite catch the first time of viewing. Nothing on Netflix this week, but I did enjoy some movies from my DVR, some of them “oldies,” like Sea of Love with Al Pacino and Ellen Barkin.
So…let’s grab some more coffee and talk about the week:
