“One Day” by David Nicholls

Read a big chunk in the book yesterday and then finished it up today.  I loved the premise – one day a year in their life – and I liked the characters.  I loved how it ended but I didn’t love some of the things that happened.  I don’t want to be **SPOILERY** so I… Continue reading “One Day” by David Nicholls

A library run…

I went to the library and the item on hold for me was the print copy of “Jane Eyre,” not the audiobook.  Hmmm.  I was looking forward to listening to that book as my pile of books TBR is getting bigger and bigger and a few have deadlines.  I’m not the speediest reader around and… Continue reading A library run…

Monday meandering…

I’m so looking forward to crawling into bed in a few minutes and reading some more in “One Day” before bed.  We drove to Des Moines this weekend and I got to sit in the backseat and read… something I haven’t done in a LONG time!  I’m usually the driver, so being driven and being… Continue reading Monday meandering…

TBR Pile Minus One

Well, I didn’t exactly have a marathon of reading over the weekend, because I think that means that you spend more time reading than doing anything else.  I did have some marathon mornings – staying in bed on Saturday and Sunday and reading – but that was about it.  I finished the book I started… Continue reading TBR Pile Minus One

48 Hour TBR Marathon, et al

Exploring book blogs is SO fun, but can get overwhelming!  Did you know there are blogaversaries?  I wonder when this blog should have celebrated that?  There are book challenges: read so-many pages, read all of Austen’s books, read all science fiction, read all romance in February.  There are Blog-Hops – what do you think that… Continue reading 48 Hour TBR Marathon, et al

A Walkie Walkie

Tonight Sarah and I mall walked and did a little planning of “what’s next.”  She’s reading “True Grit” and then going to see the movie.  She’s enjoying the book, so that will be on my TBR list.  She’s also working on “The Magicians.”  Then we’re going to read “The One,” and “Plain Truth.”  I’m gonna… Continue reading A Walkie Walkie
