It's Monday...what are you reading or watching or listening to?

I finished this you remember when it was all over the bestseller lists?  I think I'm past the stage where transformational literature has an affect on me.  I'm not saying I can't learn but at my age I figure if I haven't learned life's lessons there's not much hope for me. 
 I decided I'm going to read library books too.  Simply because I go in and pick up books I wouldn't necessarily read if I had to pay money for them.  It allows me to step out of my reading "box" and do a little exploring.  I have read this author years ago and he was very good and so far I am enjoying this book.  It is like confirmation of my own personal beliefs that have been with me all along.
The other library book I got was a book I spotted that Diane over at Lavender Dreams 
had recommended to me a while ago.  It started slow but after the first chapter I got into it and I am really enjoying it!
 My current fiction is this old book...........I was watching The Bakery Bears podcast and Kay was talking about her favorite book of all time...........I knew I had it somewhere but had never read it and I found it!  This was a popular series several years back.  Probably while I was going to school, raising 4 children and/or reading stacks of technical manuals for work.  There were years in there when I really had no time for "reading for pleasure" so I am now reading all those books that were bestsellers "back when"! LOL!  So far so good...........there are quite a few books in the series too but I only have the first one....we'll see.
I'm almost done listening to this audio book and it is really can't beat Agatha Christie and the reader for this one is very good.  I'm on the last of the 4 tapes.
Still reading this magazine...........hopefully I will finish it this week.......
and my non-fiction..........not so interesting as I think she assumes you have knit a lot of sweaters.......I have never knit a sweater........ the title is deceiving but she is very famous and is now passed on and her knitting books are considered classics.  Maybe some day it will make more sense to me but right now.....not so much.  I should finish it up this week too and then what?  Oh, the possibilities!
Happy Trails!


  1. Wow, so many books. I picked a few up from the library, and haven't had one minute to look at any of them. In fact, they were a week overdue, so now I have fines too. Maybe this weekend I can look a a few.

  2. That's what I love about the library too and I check them out and read them on my IPAD. It's fun to try new authors and books you wouldn't necessarily buy. A Man Called Ove was odd...the book and the man...but I really liked it! And you can't go wrong with Agatha Christie mysteries. I'm reading a mystery series that I LOVE by David Rosenfelt. The books are probably in your library. They are GOOD! Action packed! Hugs, Diane

  3. I picked up a Biography of Jackie Kennedy Onassis at the library yesterday. One of the bloggers recommended it! :)

  4. Oh Clan of the Cave Bear, I loved it!! I read all those books years ago and could probably read them again I liked them so much!! enjoy!! :)

  6. I don't know how you can read so many books at one time. I would be so confused! I'm a one book at a time kind of girl. I also like checking books out of the library. If I don't like them, back they go, and I don't have to worry about spending the money. Enjoy your summer time reading my friend!
    Blessings, Betsy

  7. I just purchased A Man Called Ove and it might be my next book. Right now I am reading, Me Before You. Ahhh....Clan of the Cavebear, I read that series when I was first married....33 years ago! You do have a lot books going which is something I have a hard time doing at this age!

  8. Goodness, JLS was THE book to read in high school. We all thought we were so cool reading it. You have quite an impressive reading list. I am reading the Blossom Street series By Debbie Macomber. Light reading with knitting woven into it.

  9. Our library just did 3 months of mystery reads. You picked a book wrapped in tissue paper. Didn't know if it was fiction or non-fiction. It was fun reading books that I passed because I didn't think they looked interesting enough! I will admit a few were duds and returned unread. I need to look for some of these books on the library shelf.
