Since my last update:
I’m still reading the 4th book in the Lincoln Perry series by Michael Koryta. It’s called The Silent Hour and while I’d expected to have it finished by now that just didn’t happen this week.
I finished listening to Dog Tags by David Rosenfelt and once again Grover Gardner’s reading was spot on. I’m definitely sticking with audio for the rest of this series.
We took a road trip to Southern Oregon last weekend and our road trip audiobook was Lottery by Patricia Wood. Since I’d already read and reviewed it I ‘interviewed’ The Hubster so he could review it this time. He was in a bit of a panic when I told him I was going to do that but I think he did a great job of reviewing it.
My current audiobook is My Dog Tulip by J.R. Ackerley. This one was a gift from a friend who knows that I have a serious literary crush on Ralph Cosham who reads the book. I’m partway through this memoir of a man and his dog and while I’m admittedly not a big dog fan, I’m enjoying this memoir quite a bit. Apparently I’m not the only one because it’s up for an Audie Award in the Biography/Memoir category for 2012.
Other than books and reading:
We were in Southern Oregon last weekend. It was a quick trip but we managed to make it a busy 30 hours or so., We visited one of our favorite wineries (Edenvale)
then stopped at the Harry & David store to pick up a few other local wines we can’t buy in Portland.
We saw Troilus and Cressida at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. Neither of us had seen that one before. We’ll be back down there in August to see Henry V. We figured out that we’re only a few plays short of having seen the full canon of plays at The Oregon Shakespeare Festival. Next year we'll cross Cymbeline off that list. That will leave Pericles, The Two Noble Kinsmen, and Titus Andronicus. Some of them we’ve seen multiple times and it’s always interesting to see how the staging and direction can change the feel of a play.
Photos from this week's April Photo a Day challenge can be seen at Whimpulsiveness. I'm having a blast with this and I've already decided to continue into next month and indefinitely. I like how it's making me look at things differently and also playing with my phone camera more.
Browsing through other photos on my phone from this week and this happened . . .
Hope you’re having a great weekend.
