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.
Happy July 4th to all the USA readers. Hope you are having/had a great day.
Well a day or two ago Goodreads seemed to have fixed my problems, at least when I am using my laptop. iPad still a little iffy. I am not jumping for joy yet, but quietly hopeful it will all keep working.
This past week I had three trips into the city, so unusual for me, so that meant my week had a lot less going on in various areas but that is okay. This week, fingers crossed it will mean very little travel.
I started watching The Gilded Age, which seems to be a bit of Downton Abbey set in New York. I am enjoying it, well not the snobbery, but I like shows like this.
I dislike when books mention Covid. Some seem to think when they set their book its all over. But its not, is it! Our cases are on the rise in NZ and winter flu, and besides who wants to read about it! Let’s pretend in our reading its not there! I’ve left a couple of books on my shelf a little longer because of the pandemic links. The Edge of Summer did have mention of it, but I excuse it because only a fleeting mention, although it did assume things are fine. I guess authors can have wishful thinking like us all.
