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.


Triple digits are predicted for this weekend and beyond!  I knew it was coming…but I was still clinging to the past week with the 80s days.  Sigh.

It has still been a pretty good week, with THREE books read and reviewed.  My Read the Books You Buy Challenge total:  49 books.  Two of my books this week were review books.  I am enjoying hanging out in my office today, with books and the TV playing in the background.  Breakfast (nothing fancy:  toaster waffles) and an Aurora Teagarten Mystery Marathon.



This weekend brings a Summer Mini-Bloggiesta, and I’ve given myself a head start, as usual.  I am enjoying working on my An Interior Journey site, my first blog on Word Press.

Now…let’s take a look at the past week.
