Good morning and happy Monday! After another busy week, the final push is on for our library book sale which begins Friday... and my back is already complaining. Saturday afternoon, in an effort to relax those aching muscles, I floated around on a pool lounge and read for a couple of hours - a paperback, of course. The above photo was my view from the float.
My other project last week, influenced by The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo, was cleaning out my closet. Many bags of clothing were discarded and I actually like my closet again. On the top shelf, way in the back, I found a box which was never unpacked when we moved in 25 years ago. It contained my journals from senior year of high school, college, my first job, and ended when I got engaged. That made for quite a trip down memory lane! I'll have a review of the book this week.
The journals made up the bulk of my reading last week, but I also finished//
The Lost Daughter by Elena Ferrante
Framley Parsonage by Anthony Trollope, narrated by Simon Vance
This started as a read/listen combination, but was mostly listening this week.
Between You & Me: Confessions of a Comma Queen by Mary Norris
Hardcover from the library... I'll also need to choose a paperback for pool reading.

Will be crazy... Our library book sale begins Friday, my birthday is Wednesday, and Sunday we're off on our Great Western Adventure. I plan to have a few posts ready this week, then a short break until early August.
How was your week? What are you reading today?
