It's Monday and the sun is out...

Happy Monday, everyone! I am happy to report that everyone is safe and sound post-Irene, and our house was unscathed as well. We did lose power for 26 hours and camped out in the downstairs hallway in case the threatened tornado touched down.The storm also afforded me the opportunity to do some reading by candlelight on Sunday night, before we got our power back at midnight. Onto the books!

This past week I read:

The Tiger's Wife
By Tea Obreht

The God of Small Things
By Arundhati Roy

This week on the blog:
David and I reviewed Watermelon Day, I reviewed The Hours by Michael Cunningham, and I wrote about how lovely Anne Lamott is and how fluffy reading is sometimes very necessary.

Coming Up This Week:
Wednesdays with David and reviews of The Tiger's Wife and The God of Small Things

Reading this Week:

Pigeon English
By Stephen Kelman

The Boy in the Suitcase (ARC)
