It's Monday, What're you Reading is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.
She's taking a little hiatus from it right now.
But all around the book blogging community, we put a shout out to her when we tell what we are reading on Monday!
I just finished these:
(and cannot wait to tell you what I thought of them)
And I am just starting these:
Much more intense than some I've read lately, but I think they will both be good.
This week, I am alone. The Handyman is out of town and my son and grandkids just left.
Yesterday, I spent the afternoon watching a movie--The Butler, I thought it was really good. 2 episodes of Breaking Bad (I'm only on season 2. I know I'm slow/later/whatever. I want to like it--everybody else did--but it's very slow.)
And an episode of Doc Martin.
Then I made popcorn for dinner and then I watched Masterpiece Theater, the premier of Poldark.
And I liked it very much.
So..an afternoon on the couch, pretty much. I did manage to do a bit of laundry tho.
Tonight? Maybe a bowl of cereal and more Doc Martin and Breaking Bad.
A couple of weeks ago, while we were up on Washington for:
a nephew's graduation, a granddaughter's graduation, the birth of a grandniece....I thought we might be too busy to get to my favorite bookstore
It's been my favorite for 38 years. Longer than the Handyman has been my favorite man.
I have not lived in the town where it is located for 36 years, but I always go in to say hello and spend money when I'm in town.
It has moved locations 3 times and gotten bigger each time.
They had just recently moved into their present location and I had not seen it, but I was quickly running out of time.
On a trip out and about, the Handyman pulled into their new location and I ran inside. I didn't have much time, but I did come away with a stack of books ---many recommend to me by Patty (or Patti). She is my new favorite bookstore friend! She was amazing and nice and helpful. I tried to take her picture, but both of them were blurry. She might be happy about that, I don't know.
Since I only had 15minutes, I was running around like a crazy person for the most part, but I did take a few pictures to share... cuz, it's my favorite.
What can I say!
The new store is beautiful!
And I can't wait to go back.
Ask for Patty!
The Handyman finds a chair to sit and wait for me!
and to play on his phone.
