Since my last update:
I finished both Gold by Chris Cleave and The Blind Goddess by Anne Holt. They’re very different but both were good. I’m now reading The 500 by Matthew Quirk. It’s a suspense thriller that reminds me of Grisham’s The Firm but with Washington DC power brokers rather than lawyers. So far I’m enjoying it. Later today I’ll be starting Mallory’s Oracle by Carol O’Connell. That one has been on my TBR list for quite a while and I’m glad to finally get around to reading it. I’ve heard good things about the series from folks whose opinions I trust
On audio I’m listening to Let’s Pretend This Never Happened: A Mostly True Memoir by Jenny Lawson (The Bloggess). She reads it herself and since all my audiobook time is when I’m in the car it’s like having her in the car with me telling stories. I’m enjoying it a lot. I find myself literally laughing out loud quite often.
Other than books and reading:
I mentioned last week that early July is family BBQ time for us. July 4th we always get together with The Hubster’s side of the family. My side of the family had their annual BBQ last Saturday.
That party involves lots of people and lots of food. We refer to it as the “Meatfest at Dad’s”.
My dad lives in Washington near Mt. Adams and the drive up and the scenery there is just beautiful.
I can’t leave you without some Abby Antics. She experienced the paper shredder the other day and could not figure it out.
Hope you’re having a great weekend.
