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.

Another hot week has been good for my reading…and Movie/TV watching.  I  read and reviewed four books this week, bringing my total for the Read the Books You Buy Challenge to 58.  Two of my books were NetGalley Review ARCs.

On the binge-watching front, I watched Season 6 of Offspring on Netflix, and all of Season 1 of Gypsy.

My stacks are dwindling…a little.  But I keep buying books, too, although I only downloaded one e-book this week.

Let’s grab some coffee and take a look.  I’m in my office with the TV on…and posting on my blogs.
