Good morning, friends. Our time in Sanibel continues to fly, much like the kites on the beach, and our so-called "revolving door" continues to spin. Daughter #1 returned to NYC early last week, my SIL arrived the following day (though she is not staying with us), and Twin A and her boyfriend are scheduled to fly in on Wednesday. It's wonderful having so much family around, but a little tiring, too!
This past week I voted in FL for the first time. I may not have mentioned it here, but am officially a Florida resident now. We will continue to spend much of the year at our home in central NY... at least until my husband decides to retire. Anyway, Florida is one of this Tuesday's big primary states and they offer early voting at selected locations. We were in Ft. Myers anyway, so I stopped at the Lee County Elections Center. Voting was incredibly quick, easy, and efficient! The whole set-up was impressive... maybe New York could learn a thing or two.
And now for the books. It's been a good reading week...
Like Family by Paolo Giordano
A quiet, melancholy, character-driven novel which I enjoyed very much. Mini-review coming soon.
Missoula: Rape and the Justice System in a College Town by Jon Krakauer
A read/listen combo, this book was infuriating, disturbing, and important. Finished last night, my thoughts need to settle before I can write a coherent review.
by Irin Carmon, Shana KnizhnikI downloaded the library ebook to my kindle and started reading last night. It soon dawned on me that I was missing the color graphics, so switched to my iPad instead... much more enjoyable!
Up next, audio//
Be Frank With Me by Julia Claiborne JohnsonI desperately need an antidote to Missoula and, guided by the recent "Sound Recommendations" post at Beth Fish Reads (her audio recommendations are always spot on!), downloaded this one last night. Can't wait to put in my earbuds and go for a walk!
On the blog//
Not sure why it's so difficult, but I can't seem to get into a blogging routine down here. Just one post last week:
Review: Death With An Ocean View by Noreen Wald
With a little luck, I will set aside time on Monday or Tuesday to catch up on reviews.
I'm off to the Framer's Market shortly, then a walk on the beach. My FIL and SIL will be over for dinner later on, and this evening we'll begin watching the two-night event, And Then There Were None, on Lifetime.
I hope you're enjoying a wonderful weekend. What have you been reading lately?
