It's Monday...what are you reading, listening to and/or watching?
I have a few finishes....like this one......the 2nd book in the Inspector Gamache series.....SO GOOD! Every night I would look forward to reading it and now I have to order book #3! Highly recommend this series if you like mysteries that have superb plots and twists without the gore or fright! I call them 'mysteries for intellectuals'....lol!
I also finished my Taproot magazine....the issue Myth and it was excellent! I definitely will be subscribing to this magazine....it's like it was made for me.....there's stories, recipes, patterns and just wonderful information about a variety of topics. You need to try it! As they state on the cover...."the magazine for makers, doers and dreamers" and it is exactly that!
This was a memoir of sorts and so delightfully and sadly told by a very talented woman who has several books out on crafts and sewing. It is the story of her childhood which was wonderful and unique but also scary as her Mother wasn't paying much attention most of the time. But it is very well written and Heather has been made strong in the process plus it has a fairy tale ending! A must read if you like good non-fiction about real people.
This one is also finished and so enjoyable. I love stories of self-sufficiency and survival and Gary Paulsen is so good at it! He actually tests a lot of his events out before he puts them on paper so although fiction it is very realistic fiction. These are for Young Adults or Young Adults at heart! I think there's another one called Winter which is next. This one was very good just like the first one, Hatchet, that I loved. My grandson's will be getting these when I'm finished...at least the ones that can read! LOL!
At the present time I am reading Book #4 of the Harry Potter series...........The Goblet of Fire.......very good so far...........
I need to grab another magazine to read and I am still reading this non-fiction on my Kindle app on my tablet.............it's interesting and tells about the new generation of entrepreneurs out there that are not following the old methods of starting a business which is great to hear because it was enough to put anyone off from starting one. My hat's off to this new way of 'doing' business. I got this for my son to read when he comes down but of course I had to check it out to see if it was any good! LOL!
With this book I may start a side business of my own. After I move that is!
I'm reading this non-fiction that I got for St. Patrick's Day and it is very good so far....and it actually takes place near to where my ancestors were from in County Donegal in Northern Ireland. It sort of gives me a glimpse into how they lived and the landscape etc. Much of it hasn't changed a lot. I know the thatched roof cottage that has been in my family for generations just got a metal roof about 20 years ago or less. I love the 'untouched' parts of the world.
I haven't really listened to anything like audio podcasts but I have watched video podcasts and a few other than my regulars. One of the new ones is Betsy Makes and she is good friends with Sandra of Cherry Heart. She also dyes her own yarn and has some really pretty project bags she sells in her Etsy shop. Also, I found some new mystery series on You Tube which are really good....one is Rosemary and Thyme and the other is Hetty Winthrope.....free and no ads! LOL! They are both British mysteries which I dearly love.....they are always done in such good taste. That's all for this week and I hope you are enjoying whatever you are reading, watching and/or listening to!
