It's Monday, so we talk about books


Hey everyone. How was your week? It feels like it has been a long few days, doesn't it?

I was supposed to go visit a friend this weekend, but she came down with the flu so we had to postpone. Boo. I did enjoy some quiet time in the house and a date night with the husband, since David went to Grandma and Grandpa's house this weekend.

    1. That sounds wonderful. I've never been to an author event, but I bet Smith would be a really interesting person to listen to.
      Have a great week!

    1. That's a great plan. I made some good progress on my shelves last year, so I'm feeling better about going to the library again and spending all of those giftcards from Christmas!

    1. You know it's a good sign when you think "I really want to get back to reading about the plague..."

      I'm so happy you read The Imperfectionists but so sad he has no more books for us to love!
