It's Monday and I'm reading again!

Hey fellow bibliophiles! I meant to get this post up earlier, but things can be a a little crazy around here with getting errands done for the week and trying to keep up with a certain little girl.

This past week has been an eventful one. My daughter turned four. My husband's birthday was the same day...he turned a different age, though! I worked Friday and then had a meeting on Saturday. Sunday was church and going out with my parents to celebrate Mother's Day, of course.

I'm pleased to report that I am getting through books again! This week, I finished City of God, The Home That Was Our Country, and Cinnamon and Gunpowder. I also read Music for Wartime, a short story collection I didn't get to read for the 24 Hour Readathon.

            The Home That Was Our Country: A Memoir of Syria  Music for Wartime: Stories

I finished up Plan B: Further Thoughts on Faith by Anne Lamott this morning and next up is The Bedlam Stacks.

What are you reading this week?


  1. Sounds like a nice week - hope you had a good Mother's Day! Good reading week for you, too. I just won the latest Anne Lamott memoir - Hallelujah Anyway - at Booktopia. Love her writing!

    Enjoy your books this week -


    Book By Book

  2. It's fun to get back into reading. Sounds like you're excited about the books you're reading. I loved reading to my daughter when she was 4.

  3. I've been really curious about Cinnamon and Gunpowder. What did you think of it?

  4. Looks like a good reading week. Enjoy all your books.

  5. I'm glad you had a wonderful Mother's Day and belated wishes to the birthday folks :)

    I looked up the blurb for Cinnamon and Gunpowder, and wow, that certainly is a different take on the traditional pirate tale. I hope it was a good story for you.

  6. Happy birthday to your loved ones! All of your books sound interesting. Different from my usual reading but I'll have to check them out. Have a great weekend!
