It's been an interesting year so far. I've lost both my Moms. My mother died in January after a long decline. Soon after, my Mother-in-Law went in for bypass surgery. While her heart healed, other issues zapped her strength and she died April 22.

I may have challenge update posts but I don't know when I'll be posting regularly or when I'll get to visit everyone who is working on the challenges I'm hosting.

Happy Monday!

Not much read that counts (lots of on-line stories). Had a great lunch out with my parents then shopping with Mom. Don't have many plans for this week but husband is talking about a quick trip out of town next week for the two of us.


Hope everyone has plans for a great week.


Mailbox Monday is a place to share all the wonderful books that have come to live in your home– including paper books, e-books and audio books. Mailbox Monday was started by Marcia of The Printed Page. When Marcia was ready to move on from being the weekly host, she was kind enough to set up the Mailbox Monday Blog Tour. Check it out so you know where to go next month.

A big Thank You to Leah for hosting in September, the October host is Serena at Savvy Verse and Wit (blog link, not post link).

Wow...you sure got a ton of books this week! I really need to start reading Susan Mallery's Fool's Gold series.

Stop by my It's Monday post if you get a chance.

RAnn said...

Benny & Shrimp was interesting. There is something about Mallery's writing that just doesn't do it for me though.

Beth(bookaholicmom) said...

I've heard A Prayer for Owen Meany is very good. I hope you enjoy all your new reads.

Jenny Q said...

Great Mailbox! Susan Mallery is an author I'd like to try.

I read 'A Modern Witch' earlier this year and surprised myself with how much I enjoyed it! I have the sequel on my eReader too but just haven't got around to it yet - hope you like it! :)

I reviewed How Many Cats last month. It's nice to see others blogging about the same books. :)

I guess it was a pretty normal week of reading for me. Please come see what I've read.

Mystica said...
