Hello, Friends! How is your weekend going? Mine is pretty quiet. I’m making all my husband’s favorite dishes today since it’s Father’s Day. Unfortunately, I can’t barbeque steak, so he’s on his own when it comes to that.
Speaking of food… My vegetable garden is doing 100% better than last year. I’m quite proud, though if I can blame Mother Nature for the bad year, I guess I have to give her credit for the good. Either way I’m happy.
I read Ana’s thoughtful post last week about considering the audience of your blog and I admitted that I often think that my readers are other book bloggers. This may not be true, other people might be reading my posts. It was a good reminder that I shouldn’t be too book bloggy all the time. I’ve had great conversations with people about books that weren’t other bloggers because of my blog. Anyway, I hope I haven’t made people feel left out.
No new books were acquired this week, but I did review Northanger Abbey and The Governess Affair here and Baddeck and That Sort of Thing over at Project Gutenberg Project. I’m really hoping to change my public domain reading streak from blah to woot! soon. I need a good one. It’s what I want, what I really really want.
I’m thinking that I might need a summer reading theme. All mysteries? Romance? Comedy? Maybe all three? Hmm… What about you? What do you want to read this summer?
Right now, I’m reading A Discovery of Witches. So far it’s ok. Not much is happening yet. Mostly all the action involves going to the library. I hope things pick up, since it’s almost 600 pages long.
So that was super rambly. It didn’t have much of a point. Oh well, that’s sort how my mind works anyway!
And just because…here’s Jimmy Fallon, Carly Rae Jepsen, and The Roots performing Call Me Maybe with classroom instruments.
