    1. Those all sound highly interesting, CyberKitten.

    2. Thanks. I have what I call a 'butterfly mind' so hop from subject to subject quite a bit. It keeps my brain stimulated. [grin]

    3. I love that expression. I think mine works the same way. LOL

    4. CK - YES! So you are quite lucky when I saw your review, it was already on my radar.

      Marianne - this is why CK and I end up always having so many books in common, and why I always complain about his book hauls - our minds are so much alike and we both just flutter from one topic to another and back again.

    5. That is wonderful. I had a blogger friend who read almost the same books as I but she had to give it up, unfortunately (though we still hear from each other). But I find your lists extremely helpful, even if I don't have to time to read all the books you present, it still gives me a lot of information.

    6. Good! I am so glad my reads are helpful to someone else. You will probably find things of interest on CK's blog then also, if you have not already.

    7. I will have to check it out. Thanks.

    8. Book reviews are every Monday & Thursday - if you want to skip the other stuff....

    9. I actually like "other stuff" as much as I like book reviews. I wanted to follow you already but this week was quite exhausting. "See" you soon.

    10. I look forward to it. Although there's quite a bit of book related stuff my 'butterfly' can't resist landing on other topics and hazarding a 'sip'. Even I'm not always sure what I'll be posting some days...... [grin]

    11. Well, I don't comment on every single post of all the people I follow, it's easy to scroll over it if I don't have the time or energy.

    1. Dark Tide and The Ground Breaking were both really good. The Ground Breaking was about the Tulsa Massacre, and the recent searches for the unmarked graves in order to give them proper burials. They've found about a dozen so far in simple wood coffins. I hope they find every victim, and justice is finally served.

  3. I have only finished one story this week and that was a veeeery short one, "The Lottery" by Shirley Jackson. All my other books are too long to finish in a week, especially since I read a few at the same time (like you, I guess).

    1. I have hardly read at all and it is driving me crazy!

      I am trying to work out a schedule for myself to give myself time to blog and read more. I have started making grocery deliveries for a company called Shipt, because dance is super expensive, especially now that Eleanor has her solo. I don't do deliveries when she is home, because that's not really quality time spent together. I deliver when she has to go to her father's house, and have been doing them during the week too. But I think now I am going to save weeknights for catching up on blog stuff, and the long delivery days for the weekends.

    2. Well, we all have a life that comes before reading, no matter how much we would like it to be different. But our loved ones come first.

      Delete
    3. Absolutely. Eleanor is first, period. And making those grocery deliveries has helped SO much. But I also need at least a little bit of time for reading; without that I would go insane!

    4. Of course. I always volunteered for tons of stuff but when my boys had something, I left everything behind.

    5. It's really frustrating in jobs situations where we are always told our families come first, but then when something family-related comes up, sometimes bosses hem and haw about you needing to take time off.

      Delete
    6. That is the biggest problem. Of course, when volunteering, they are so happy for the days you come and they can't really say anything when you tell them your child is sick. They want you to be back.
