Since my last update:
Another week of not much reading time but I know what at least part of the problem is and it’s my contacts. My vision has changed enough over the past several months that I finally went to the eye doctor a couple of weeks ago. I should be getting my new contacts this week and that will help. I just have had a difficult time sitting and reading for any length of time because of the eye strain. At least that’s what I’m using for the excuse that it took me until the middle of November to finish my first books of the month.
I finished reading The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. I enjoyed this one a lot. It’s really a series of twelve short stories compiled into one volume. It was actually perfect for my short attention span reading lately. I’m glad to have knocked off the one book I committed to for the Sherlock Holmes Reading Challenge and it got me excited about getting back to the series and reading more.
On audio I finished The Golden One by Elizabeth Peters and immediately started the next one in the series called Children of the Storm. It picks up two years after The Golden One. World War I is over and family members absent from the past few books are arriving for a visit. I’m looking forward to finding out what adventures are in store for the family.
I need to figure out want I’ll read next at some point this afternoon. I’ve still got several graphic novels out from the library so I might binge read a few of those before I dive into one of several novels that are tempting me right now.
Other than books and reading:
We went to the zoo last Sunday for a short visit. We live fairly close to the zoo and having a membership this year has made just stopping by for short visits a fun thing.
Lily the youngest elephant (she’ll soon be a year old) was out playing with her older brother Sam (who is 5).

I did the best I could getting photos of the baby De Brazza’s Monkey but the glass and backlighting made it hard. He’s a cutie though.

Hope you’re having a great weekend!
