Another gorgeous day -just the kind of day that makes fall such a wonderful season! Of course, having the windows open and things starting to dry out can play havoc with allergies and for me that meant a real struggle with my eyes being dry yesterday. So hard to read--my reading glasses were not working for me unless I held them clear away from my eyes but I couldn't read without them. Argh!
Even though my kids seemed to think it was "talk to Mom" day and I had to give up my reading perch late at night for some girls to watch movies, I still managed to read three books (766 pages) during the readathon yesterday. Not nearly as much as some of the participants but I'm pretty happy with it given the day I had! One of these days I'm going to figure out how to work in time for some of the fun stuff that's going on as well.
This week I'll have reviews up for The Art of Disappearing by Ivy Pochoda and Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffenegger, a book giveaway and a review of my book club's talk with Jennie Nash about her book "The Threadbare Heart." I'll continue working my way through Washington: A Life by Ron Chernow. It's certainly interesting but it's not the kind of book I can sit down and spend hours with. After that my plan is to finally finish Kate Morton's "The Forgotten Garden," which my book club read for August. What are you reading this week?
