Remember me? It sure has been a long time! Blogging and life just don't seem to be compatible at the moment...
The photo above is from our hotel in Cape Cod. We took a quick road trip last week... the weather and the seashore were glorious! On Friday, drove up to the Adirondack Mountains for a day of nature and leaf-peeping. Foliage was at peak color and we found a new-to-us trail to explore. Tomorrow we are off to NYC to spend a few days with our daughters.
As you might expect, reading time has been hard to come by. I finished Belgravia by Julian Fellowes a couple of weeks ago. The book brief is still in my draft folder... could have sworn I hit 'publish', but evidently not. Anyway, it turned out to be the perfect 'recovery book' after Germinal. I'll bring it to NYC tomorrow and let my Downton-obsessed daughters fight over who reads it next.
I *should* finish both of these books today.
Amsterdam by Ian McEwanFor #damalong... with thirty pages to go, I am lagging behind. Ian McEwan's books may be short, but they are never a quick read.
Just Mercy by Bryan StevensonI borrowed both the ebook and audiobook (narrated by the author) from the library... it has enraged me and moved me to tears. The author will speak in my area this spring and I may just plan my return from Florida around it! This will surely be on my list of nonfiction favorites in December. Click on the title to read the goodreads summary.
Commonwealth by Ann PatchettThe due date on my library book is fast approaching and I haven't even started yet. I'll bring it to NYC, but plan to buy my own copy if I can't finish in time. Ann Patchett is worth purchasing in hard cover!
Agnes Grey by Ann BronteMy Classics Club spin book. I'll be listening to this one, but also have the ebook on my kindle.
Life should be back to normal next week... or at least my husband will be back at work, so I'll have time to read and blog again. Hope all is well with you (I'm sorry I haven't been able to visit your blogs for the past week or so) and you're reading some great books!
