All things bookish!

There just aren’t enough hours in the day for the myriad of books I’d like to read.  I’m actually starting to consider a book diet – I have four incomers this week and no read and reviewed and that’s a situation that can’t continue if I don’t want to be over-run by books in the hallway, books in the bathroom and books in the kitchen.  (They’ve already taken over the bedroom and sitting-room.)  But I’m going to leave things as they are for now as I know I have a few months of uninterrupted reading time over the summer which will give me an opportunity to get caught up before I start all over again with a new University course.  In the meantime, here’s this week’s update:

Incoming Books:

  1. Maria McCann – The Wilding – Paperback, gift from friend.
  2. Louise Allen – The Notorious Mr Hurst – Kindle, reward to self.
  3. Tracy Borman – Elizabeth’s Women – Kindle, reward to self.
  4. Lisa Napoli – Radio Shangri-La – ARC, requested from publisher.

The Week Ahead:

There’s more Sons and Lovers in my future as well as Karen Armstrong’s excellent Twelve Steps to a Compassionate Life.

Comments on: "It’s Monday! What are you Reading & MailBox Monday" (14)

  1. Just finished The Distant Hours by Kate Moreton .

  2. Your books sounds so fantastic! I have the same book overriding going on here…. every week I need to clean off the corner of the kitchen table where they tend to accumulate – waiting for a review to be written, waiting to be read…. giveaways…… 🙂

  3. I love that you rewarded yourself with books! I got Radio Shangri-La too. Happy reading!

  4. I love those rewards 🙂 I do that too. Have a good week!

  5. I can relate to the feeling of being overrun by your books 🙂 We definitely need more bookcases around here (perish the thought of less books)…
    Hope you enjoy them all!

  6. I mostly read picture books. But I did finish the Hunger Games. Come see what I’m reading now.

  7. All I have to say is…yep, yep and YEP! So many books to read, so little time. At least if you have books piling up they look like good ones.

      That’s true Jess – and I like having them around. A house without books is like a house without a cat – incomplete and lonely.
