Since my last update:
I’m still reading Say You’re Sorry by Michael Robotham. It’s unusual for me to start with a later book in a series but this one is so good. It’s got some dark and disturbing elements to it but I’m liking the main character and the story is very well done. I’m sure I’ll be going back and reading the earlier books in this series.
I also read the 4th book in the Unwritten series by Mike Carey and Peter Gross. I really never expected that I would like a graphic novel series as much as I do. This has been a pleasant surprise. I’ve got the 5th book out from the library now and will be reading it soon. I’m high on the waiting list at the library for the 6th volume which will be out on Tuesday.
On audio, I’m nearly done listening to The Beautiful Mystery by Louise Penny. This one has been a change of pace for this series. Taking the action away from the village of Three Pines allows her to focus on a couple of ongoing story threads but I miss some of the usual cast of supporting characters.
Other than books and reading:
The ongoing sorting, purging, cleanup binge at our house is shifting to the garage today. New shelf units are ready to be put together and we’ll get one side of the garage cleaned up this afternoon. I have yet to get on with the project of unpacking books and restocking my bookshelves but might get around to starting that this week. Mostly it’s been nice to have a week of fairly normal routine for a change.
Taking a browse through my phone photos for this week . . .
Summer is definitely gone and the showery weather is looking a bit more ominous these days.
I’m back to going to work in the dark again but really – it’s actually kind of pretty at the transit center just around sunrise.
Sometimes when I’m sitting in my chair reading and take a glance to the left I see this. Then I crack up.
Hope you’re having a great weekend.
