Thanks to everyone who wished my father well last week. He had four stents put into hi9s heart on Thursday, spent a little time in Intensive Care and is now recuperating at home.
I’ve had a good week on The Book Diet and, with two books leaving Mt TBR and none joining it, I’ve earned £1. At the moment, I’m saving for some pretty underwear.
As ever, I’ve lined up seven books for the week ahead but I’m having some mental-health difficulties just now and am finding it very hard to concentrate on reading. I’m finding it easier to focus on more active pursuits (like cooking or writing). My mood will eventually break – I’m in a slightly elevated state just now – and I’ll likely spend some time feeling horrible and reading as a means of escape before finding my way back to normality. It all evens out in the end.
