« In Consideration of Weeding My Books | Main | Waiting in Line: Can't Wait to Read »



I'm currently reading The Mirror and the Light by Hilary Mantel. I wondered if I would be able to get into it since it has been so long since I read the first two in the series. But it has been as though no time has passed. Loving it.

Also reading Pack Up Your Troubles by Cynthia Harrod-Eagles. The last in the series set in England during WWI. Very readable and easy to lose myself in and that's just what I need right now!


I have just had a whole heap of books delivered from the library. It's great that we can still access library books at this time.

I've been reading a LOT in July, and have read some really enjoyable things, including Nothing to See Here (Kevin Wilson), Before the Coffee Gets Cold (translated from Japanese), a couple of Inspector Alleyn mysteries, and From the Mixed Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler, which I somehow missed reading as a child. I'm currently reading the third book in the Ruth Galloway series, and Elizabeth Gaskel's Wives and Daughters, my summer reading "project."

My library is open for curbside pickup with an appointment, so I've been putting plenty of books on hold, and I've been reading more ebooks, since I can get hold of them immediately rather than waiting for the holds to come in.

I have heard about The Mountains Wild and have that on my TBR list--I look forward to hearing what you think of it. Happy reading!


Oh I hadn't heard of any new books by Sarah Stewart Taylor in a long time. Curious about this new series. And, really happy to hear you are enjoying the graphic novel of The Great Gatsby. I've been tempted by that one and may have to get it!


I've only read one of Attica Locke's books, but I've read it twice -- it was SO good (the first one). Just recently I checked the library to see if her others are available, and I nearly put the other four on hold, because she's just so engaging and smart with her storytelling. (The only one of her books for which I'd have to wait was the first one -- I should do it, shouldn't I?)
