It’s Monday


It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. This meme started with J Kaye’s Blog   and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date


I’ve been looking forward to this weekend for a while now – it was the first library book sale of the year! I grabbed a lot of books for the kids and a few for myself for about $14 (and donated the change of $6). This year there seemed to be more books in the adult fiction section but fewer that I was interested in. But hey, not a bad haul for a 20 minute browse!








Persuasion – Jane Austen (a reread)


Borderline – Mishell Baker 


Mad Men season 5 and The Grand Tour


This is the Story of a Happy Marriage – Ann Patchett



A scone I found in the freezer. Which probably means it’s been in the freezer for a few months. But it was still tasty! And homemade!






I’ve been following Kerry’s blog Pickle Me This for quite a while now and the exciting news is that her book Mitzi Bytes is out! Congratulations Kerry!

The Illustrated Page is highlighting female SFF authors in March!

Beth Fish Reads reviews 3 books about beer!

Weekend Cooking: Making bread with the tangzhong method



  1. Wow, for such a quick visit you definitely got a bunch of wonderful books! Way to go! And I hope you are enjoying Borderline — it really impressed me and is probably going to be one of my top books for 2017 (so early in the year! yet here we are!).


  2. Awesome haul for a short visit to the library book sale. Looks like some great books for the kids! Our big one is coming up April 2.

    Austen is so rereadable. I just began listening to the audio book of Sense and Sensibility narrated by Juliet Stevenson. This will be my third read of that one.

    1. Oh yes I keep meaning to post about the graphic novel. I did read the book but quite a long time ago.


  3. A “found” scone? *raises eyebrow* Yes, please.
    Great haul from the sale. Feels like ages since I’ve seen you adding to your collection.
    Have I just missed those posts, or are you showing considerable restraint? 🙂
