Good morning! Today’s post will link up to The Sunday Salon, The Sunday Post and Stacking the Shelves, for weekly updates.

**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.

Where did the week go?  I went out and about, the weather was in the 90s most days, which was great…and I read and reviewed THREE books.  My Read the Books You Buy total is now 72.

For the most part, I don’t recall much about the week, except that the books I read were good.  On Netflix, I finished The Ranch and started Friends from College.  I’m not sure about that one, since, after two episodes, I don’t like the characters that much.  There doesn’t seem to be any kind of plot, and they all behave like teenagers, even though they are in their forties.  I may have to give it more time…or just stop watching.

I’m writing this on Friday evening so I won’t have to get up early on Saturday.  I am feeling really tired lately and I’d like to sleep in.

Let’s take a look at last week:


Sunday Potpourri:  General Quirkiness…and Favorite Things

Tuesday Potpourri:  Ogling New Release Books…

Tuesday Sparks:  “Crime Scene”

Hump Day Potpourri:  My Reading Week….

As usual, I have a list of possibilities…and I tend to veer off any path that I set up for myself.  But first:

Currently Reading:  The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo (e-book), by Taylor Jenkins Reid


Maybe these:

And that was my week.  What did yours look like?  Here’s tonight’s dinner, from California Pizza Kitchen:  Baked Potato Soup, Strawberry Margarita…and Pippa, my Kindle.

  2. So many thrillers! I need to pick them back up, I burned myself out on them last year after a serious binge. I also want to pick up The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo sometime soon as well, I’ve heard nothing but great things about it. Looks like you had a great week of book acquisitions. 🙂
