It's Monday. What are you reading this summer?

Hi everyone! How was your week?

It's been happy and busy around here, as my son's preschool reports used to say. We've really been enjoying summer with lots of time outside and a movie night (with ice cream, of course). My son and I even managed to sneak in some time at Barnes and Noble on Sunday afternoon.

This week, I read A Talent for Murder and The Sworn Virgin. Both are historical fiction; one imagines what happened during the week that Agatha Christie went missing and the second tells the story of an Albanian woman who swears to remain chaste in return for being considered a man by her community.

In a very unusual move for me, I don't have plans to pick up a book until Wednesday when I shall be whisked away on a train to Disney World. The husband and I are celebrating our ten year wedding anniversary with a trip sans kids, so I am excited to get a lot of reading done! My choices for the trip include The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency, The Lauras, Rules of Civility, and Young Jane Young. Any suggestions on which book I should start with?

What are you reading this week?


  1. Happy anniversary and have a great trip! My husband and I are doing the same thing in September!

  2. Happy anniversary. Traveling is the one time when I don't read. I'm the one in the family with the camera. Photography is as much a hobby for me as reading is. The old place is nearly ready. Meanwhile, we're happily settled in our temporary apartment. Come see what I'm reading

  3. Have a great trip. Come see my week here. Have a great week!

  4. ha ha - you're going to Disney World without kids? Hope you have a great trip & a wonderful anniversary!

    I've been hearing lots about A Talent for Murder - it sounds very intriguing.

    Enjoy your books this week - and your vacation!

  5. The Sworn Virgin is one I hadn't heard about, but it looks really interesting.
