**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.
A week of cooler weather, ongoing birthday celebrations, and Halloween…kept me busy. I knew I wouldn’t have any Trick or Treaters…as I haven’t had them for the past ten years that I have lived here. Instead I curled up on my sofa to read and watch movies.
I thought I would finish my fourth book of the week, but decided to write this post about the THREE I did read and review, bringing my challenge total to ONE-HUNDRED!
Because we change our clocks back on Sunday, and because I removed the batteries on this wall of clocks…
I knew that I needed a desktop style clock that actually works…so I ordered this one from Amazon. It should arrive by 8 p.m. tonight…maybe not in time for the changeover, since arrival times are unpredictable.

Paper Ghosts (e-book), by Julie Heaberlin (NG – 5/15/18)

Play It As It Lays (e-book), by Joan Didion
Even If It Kills Her (e-book, A Bailey Weggins Mystery), by Kate White
Try Not To Breathe (e-book), by Holly Seddon
Yesterday I started reading Seven Days of Us, by Francesca Hornak, and hoped to finish it before writing this post….I may still finish it today, but I didn’t want to rush. I am savoring this dysfunctional family.
I also started reading The One and Only, by Emily Giffin, a book I purchased in April 2016 from the bargain table at Barnes & Noble.
Then I will follow my moods….
That was my week…what did yours look like? On Wednesday, I celebrated my birthday again with a friend of many years…and had this delicious dessert, Pumpkin Cheesecake:
