Hey there, bibliophiles. How is it going? This has been a crazy week! I apologize for some spotty posting this week. We were having some computer issues, but we are back up and running.
This week saw us visiting (and loving) a preschool with David and then prepping and carrying out a concert at our church. My husband was the man in charge and I sang and played piano, among some other things. We had a local pizza place selling pizza and a few vendors. We managed to avoid any real rain, and it was a great event. I think the Summer Sounds Concert will become an annual tradition at our church. Then we had the the hubby's parents, and his brother, wife, and little guy over for dinner. Suffice it to say that we are tuckered...but it's been a really good week.

Check back later on Monday for my post on The Siren of Paris. What did you read this week?
Glad you had such a great week - love concerts like that. =) The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry is on my radar, I hope you enjoy it!ReplyDelete
It was a lot of fun. I was really nervous though - I'm glad we are not doing another one until next summer!Delete
I think the right word for The Unlikely Pilgrimage...is lovely. I hope you get the chance to read it!
I haven't heard of any of these titles, but they do look pretty good :) Hope you have a great week! The Brunette Librarian's BlogReplyDelete
I loved The Unlikely Pilgrimage and I am enjoying Tender Is The Night, which is a re-read for me. I hope you have a great week as well!Delete
I want to try The Red House! Have a super week :)ReplyDelete
I didn't love it...but perhaps you will! Thanks for visiting, Sheila. :)Delete
Lindsey! I'm always so jealous of the books you are reading :) Such good stuff. Seriously, I want all 4 of those right this minute.ReplyDelete
Hope you have a fab week!
Hehe...that is a lovely thing to hear. Thanks so much, Miss Jennifer. Have a fantastic week yourself!Delete
The Red House is on my wish list.ReplyDelete
My favorite book this week was Ottoline at Sea by Chris Riddell. Please come see what I'm reading now.
I have never heard of Ottoline at Sea. I'm off to check it out!Delete
I didn't know you sang, I'm jealous as I'm completely tone deaf!ReplyDelete
I do indeed sing; church stuff, a little opera, and a lot of musical theatre. I don't usually play the piano at the same time though, so I was suffering from a slight case of nerves on Saturday!Delete
Congratulations on a successful concert! I enjoyed The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime but I haven't read any of Haddon's other work. Enjoy your week!ReplyDelete
I didn't love The Red House. But not having read The Curious Incident, I don't know if the style is the same. I hope you have a wonderful week too!Delete
sounds like you definitely had a busy week - how did you manage to find any time to read at all! I hope you are able to find some quiet this week and enjoy a book or two! :)ReplyDelete
Thanks for visiting my blog today.
Well...I think I've passed on the right genes. When I'm home with my little guy, we often sit down for lunch with our respective books! :)Delete
Tender is the Night is my favorite Fitzgerald book! I hope you enjoy it. Thanks for visiting me at www.thekeytothegate.blogspot.com.ReplyDelete
I'm enjoying it, but it's been sort of slow going for me this time around. I think the fault is mine rather than Fitzgerald's though!Delete
The Discovery of Jeanne Baret sounds really good! Thanks for bringing it to my attention.ReplyDelete
I'm excited to read it. I want to try to read more about science, since it's not a field I have a lot of knowledge in.Delete
I've read Hadden before and liked the style. I hope this book is equally good. Looking forward to your review on the Paris book. Thank you for visiting my blog.ReplyDelete
Yikes. I'm starting to feel in the minority here since I didn't like The Red House. Oh well - you win some, you lose some. :)Delete
