Hello, bookish people! Did you have a good week? I'm having the sort of night where I can't even remember what's been happening in the past few days! It was a fun weekend - we had a great Saturday afternoon at the arcade with some of our family and friends (David liked the helicopter ride and the husband was the king of laser tag). Today, I filled in for our pianist at church and then promptly came home and took a nap. My in-laws came over and we had a nice relaxing evening complete with Chinese food. Thank goodness for weekends, right?

What are you reading this week?
I've not read Sherlock Holmes in ages!ReplyDelete
I think I've read a story here and there, but it was the first time I've enjoyed an entire collection. I really enjoyed it.Delete
I like the cover of mended.ReplyDelete
It is a beautiful one. I heard Angie speak a year or two ago and I've been following her writing ever since.Delete
Sherlock Holmes! I haven't read a Sherlock Holmes in forever! I may have to crack one open soon!ReplyDelete
It was a perfect winter read. The cold weather is good for mysteries and gigantic books, I think. :)Delete
I love the Thursday Next series! Enjoy your week!ReplyDelete
Thank you. I'm excited to get back into it. I had read the first one, but then forgot about the rest of the series until I loaned the first one to my sister.Delete
I look forward to reading your thoughts on White Teeth. I have had Smith's "On Beauty" on my bookcase for a long while but haven't delved into it yet.ReplyDelete

Thanks, Rebecca. I picked it up at a second hand bookstore. Smith is one of those authors I am always meaning to read. One author down, so many more to go!Delete
Thursday Next series is great! Mended sounds interesting too. Enjoy your week :)ReplyDelete
It's so much fun. It makes the English major side of me oh so happy. Have a great week!Delete
Oooh, Sherlock Holmes. I need to get started on those books as well!ReplyDelete
Find out what I'm reading this week!
They're great. I understand now why the character of Sherlock Holmes is so beloved.Delete
Mended sounds really interesting.ReplyDelete
Have a great week!
~Kristin @ Always With a Book
It's the third book of Angie's that I've read. Her first one is somewhat of a memoir and the other two are devotional style, where you could read a chapter every day or once a week.Delete
I have never read any Sherlock Holmes! Eeek! Hope you have a great week of reading girl!ReplyDelete
I didn't think I had either, although I knew some of the stories from pop culture and from BBC's Sherlock. Have a wonderful week! :)Delete
I have Sherlock standing by for later this year.ReplyDelete
Mended looks very nice, love the cover.
Have a great week.
I'm really glad I finally read them. They are not hard stories to get through, but they are hard to put down! Have a wonderful week.Delete
I haven't read any Jasper Fforde. Let us know how it is!ReplyDelete
I've already read the first one in the series. It's a lot of fun and there are literary references on every page. You should give it a try!Delete
I keep meaning to read a Sherlock Holmes book, maybe I'll get to one soon!ReplyDelete
They are great. I hope you enjoy reading the stories!Delete
