It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. It's a great post to organise yourself. It's an opportunity to visit and comment, and er... add to that ever growing TBR pile! So welcome in everyone. This meme started with J Kaye's Blog and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date. And here we are!
Well the week passed quickly again. Some reading, some quilting, some thinking I'll clean the windows and then when I have accomplished that I can go order new curtains. Clean the windows first! I also did a throw out for some of the books from my TBR shelf that I know I just won't read as my tastes have changed. So into a box to later go to a book fair for October. And that made space to pick up books I will read off the floor and place them on to a shelf.
I also attended an opening for a new school, or my old school relocating to new buildings and premises. They had lovely weather for it and all went off well. I loved meeting up with past students who were now looking all very grown up and had returned for the opening by kind auspices of their high school.
I went to my nephew's wedding on Saturday which took place beside a local river mouth and as the weather again was very accommodating that went off really well too.
On Sunday we chopped down about two thirds of my lemon tree that had become overgrown, a spiky thing it is too. However I did insist we go walk on the beach as it was such a lovely day, and many others had the same idea, making the best of the last of the summer weather.
What I read last week:
Review book - an okay read, not her best I thought.
Review book for April. Suffice to say here I liked it very much.
Just finished today from my recently bought shelf a Cathy Lamb book. I love her books but this one was real dark. What can be darker than child sexual abuse. I hated reading it, I loved reading it. I am distraught and you can see from what I picked up next to read I really needed something light and fun.
What I am reading at present:
Still listening to Etched in Bone. Gone off the boil with audio listening, got distracted by podcasts, but must get back to the book!
