It's Monday, so I tell you about those books


Hey there, guys and gals! How are you? How were your weekends? Mine was very busy, but good. On Friday and Saturday, the husband and I were in Maryland visiting my best friend and her husband. Sunday included church, lunch with husband's parents, a hymn sing (wherein I sang the very awesome The Prayer), and a potluck. Yes, a potluck. It was awesome but exhausting. I got some good reading done this week, including finishing up a book while watching The Oscars. (Trust me, multitasking is key for parents!) 
So...about those books...

David Copperfield
By Charles Dickens

Case Histories

The Baker's Daughter

    1. I was so proud that I had finally made a small dent in the books I own but hadn't read yet. Then yesterday I got another book in the mail...oh well! It's a nice problem to have.
      I wish you a great week as well!
