**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.
It has been another good reading week, with four books read and reviewed, and all were from my TBR Purchased stacks, which brings my total for the Read the Books You Buy Challenge to 40!
An absence of wind or rain has made my interiors feel more secure…although I did have maintenance come and apply an adhesive to that blasted skylight cover…and I had to order a new market umbrella to replace the one now in tatters. It arrived yesterday…and I will try to put it up today!
On Hulu, I want to start watching The Handmaid’s Tale.…I loved the book, and saw a movie based on it a few years ago. Margaret Atwood has suggested (in an interview) that the world in this story may not be that far off…..
Since yesterday was Cinco de Maya, I went out for this delicious Mexican meal, complete with margaritas…Yes, two.
I thought about going to see the movie The Dinner today…and I’m still contemplating it. Perhaps I will wait until it comes to Amazon Prime? I didn’t love the book that much…but the cast of the movie does sound tempting: Richard Gere, Laura Linney, Rebecca Hall, Chloe Sevigny...to name a few.
Now I think I’ll curl up and read some more…but first, let’s look at my week.
