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.
Has it been a week already since I last sat here on a Saturday morning, pondering the events of the past seven days? The week has unfolded one day at a time, featuring triple digits…what else is new? I did read and review FOUR books: two were NetGalley review books, and the other two added to my Read the Books You Buy Challenge, now totaling 66 books.
I finished Season I of Ozark…which grew more and more like Breaking Bad as it progressed. I hope there are more seasons!!
Next weekend, I am setting aside time to see the movie The Glass Castle, based on the book by Jeannette Walls. Brie Larson, Naomi Watts, and Woody Harrelson star.
On Thursday, I got a manicure and changed up my nail color to dark blue, with minimal sparkles. I needed to feel like something was changing here. The photo, below, was snapped in my bedroom showing me “clutching” Pippa, my Kindle. In the background you can see one set of bookshelves that now live in the room.
The rest of the week was more reading, some blogging, etc. So let’s grab some coffee and take a closer look.
