Hello all! It's Sunday! Sunday! Sunday! Have any big plans for your day? I'm recuperating from my very short trip which was only a day but felt like a week. I am not a good traveller. It was just a trip to the city for a little shopping and then to Peggy's Cove.

What is a Peggy's Cove? It's a little town that boasts the 'most photographed lighthouse in Canada.' I had been there before but this was the first time in the summer and it was crazy crowded. There were 8000* tourists wandering around. Fortunately, you can just point yourself toward the sea and pretend you are alone.
There seemed to be concerts all over the place this weekend (U2, Arcade Fire) but this homebody stayed in and watched Julian Smith videos on Youtube. Yes, I am a party animal. I've also been reading The Luxe by Anna Godbersen. It's one of those scandalous books about rich girls doing bad things. It's a good time to read it as I'm also listening to The Oscar Wilde Collection. Since Wilde pokes fun of the people of the class in that time period, it's a nice companion.
The books I've been wanting for came in the mail this week. Yay!! After reading The Yellow Wallpaper, I knew I must read more of Charlotte Perkins Gilman so I ordered Herland. I also bought my first (!) Persephone Books Someone at a Distance by Dorothy Whipple. And finally from NYRB A Month in the Country by J L Carr.

This week expect reviews of Agatha Christie and The Wild Rose by Jennifer Donnelly. Hope you come back for those! See you around the internets!
