Good morning! Today’s post will link up to Sunday Salon, The Sunday Post,
Notorious Spinks Talks Books, , Beauty in Ruins, for Mailbox Monday, and Book Journey, for What Are You Reading?
This has been quite the week! Between reading and reviewing a “banned/challenged book,” (hosted by Sheila) and participating in Bloggiesta, there was plenty of reading that engaged me. I did my work for Bloggiesta on this blog. Note the changes in theme, header, sidebar, and pages. Not to mention the background. Hope you like it.
Last week found me “hunkering down,” with the month half over, and this week revealed how many review books are still left to devour. Forging ahead!

I have plans to hurry through these books and pick up one or two more…to whittle down those review books on the stacks so I can grab one that I’m drooling over…a book that came in the mailbox last week. Can you guess which one?
Come on by and let’s chat. Bring coffee, because I might be curled up with my breakfast in bed.
