Welcome to our Bookish & Not So Bookish Thoughts, hosted by Christine, at Bookishly Boisterous...and to a Thursday, with the weekend fast approaching.  I am late to the party today, having had a very strange night.

I took a late nap around 7:00 p.m, which was ridiculous, and then, after a couple of hours, read for a while.  I fell asleep after watching a show on my DVR and woke up again at 2:00 a.m.

Yes, that’s what I get for that late nap!  I got up, went to the living room and read some more.  Then I napped again for a couple of hours….and now I hope I can stay up late tonight again, without further naps.  Ridiculous!





I suspect my day was off kilter yesterday because of the errands I ran.  First I took these two bags of books to the library…they were heavy, since most of them were hardcovers.  I had cleared out another shelf in my bedroom.

After the library, I picked up some more bins at Target, and then thought:  why not go pick up that prescription at Kaiser?  Ha!  It was one of those medications that they won’t prepare until you show up, even if you order it online…and I discovered this after waiting in a very long line.  An hour-and-a-half later, I had the meds, and I was feeling GRUMPY, to say the least.

My mood improved after I got home, watched a couple of shows, had a very large bowl of ice cream…and then finished reading my book.  A book that I could not put down, so I finished it later and wrote my review.  Those Girls, by Chevy Stevens, wrapped itself around me and held on tight. (Click title for my review).





So now my mood is 100% improved, and to “cleanse my palate” after my last four reads, which were suspense thrillers, I am reading The Life You’ve Imagined, by Kristina Riggle.





I am enjoying it…and maybe I’ll even sleep tonight…
