It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? a place to meet up and share what you have been, and are about to be reading over the week. It’s a great post to organise yourself. It’s an opportunity to visit and comment and er… add to your groaning TBR pile! So welcome in everyone. This meme started on J Kaye’s blog and then was hosted by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn here at The Book Date.
Jen Vincent, Teach Mentor Texts, and Kellee of Unleashing Readers decided to give It’s Monday! a kidlit focus. If you read and review books in children’s literature – picture books, chapter books, middle grade novels, young adult novels or anything in those genres – join them.

I had a good week. I finished watching Season 2 of All Creatures Great and Small. Now I see at least they are making a season 3 and 4 so something to wait for.

I listened to a podcast that interviewed an interior book designer. Who knew that was something that had to be thought through. Now I am examining the book I am reading more carefully to see what she was talking about!

We’ve had lots of rain and in for more. We have been blessed with lots of sun over summer but now the wet weather is here!

It’s a long weekend here – we celebrate the Queen’s Birthday in June and of course its her bitg 70 year celebration. I watched a little of it on You Tube. I only stream so don’t have any channels that might have shown more.

What I am reading now:

Almost finished and will do so today no doubt.

  1. I feel like Home-Wreckers would be the right thing to read for me now, since we’re renovating our just bought house! I’ve been standing like the woman on the cover for, like, the past 6 days LOL.


  2. I’d find the podcast about inner book design interesting. I hope you enjoy the week ahead. Rainy days make for good reading days!


  3. OH! The Library at the End of The World looks fabulous! I’ve requested it from my library. Alas, they still don’t have Lost Coast Literary…I may do an inter-library loan for that one. Thank you for sharing!

  4. I knew about interior book design because I had to do mine on my own … which was a STEEP learning curve, let me tell you!! Computer stuff is not my forte. I hired someone local that a friend had used & told her what I wanted for my book’s interior design. Three weeks later, she suddenly quit! Said what I wanted was impossible and she wouldn’t charge me. So, I dove in and attempted it myself – one of the most challenging things I’ve ever done! With the help of my assistant, Mr. Google, I finally figured out how to do everything I wanted (working within the quirks of Word) and am very happy with how it turned out, but wow, what a process!

    Glad you enjoyed your books (and TV) this week – hope you have another good week!

  6. Winter has arrived here too, the nights have become quite chilly. The Queens birthday long weekend is next week for us though.
    A lovely selection of books, I’m catching up so still haven’t quite got to Bloomsbury Girls yet.

    Wishing you a great reading week

  8. Well now I want to know more about book design! We have a dear friend who is in the UK and she sent us a big box of Jubilee goodies which was so fun. I’ve really enjoyed the footage I’ve seen but like you I haven’t seen too much of it. Have a wonderful week!

  9. We’ve had quite a bit of rain here too. Normally I can handle it, but it is supposed to be warm and sunny by now! Oh well! I can only hope the sun will come out soon. Have a great week!

  10. I hadn’t heard that there are going to be 2 more seasons of All Creatures. Yay! I love that show.

    I’ve fallen hopelessly behind on Mary Kay Andrews books. I used to read them as soon as she published them. I need to make the effort to catch up.

    Enjoy your week!
