This past week, I posted my reviews of Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin and Season 1 and Here’s looking at Euclid by Alex Bellos.
I did work 50 hours this week so I really did not do much in the way of hobbies though I did finish knitting a pair of socks. I even found time to play the fiddle again in awhile. I’ve had to cut music out entirely.
I did start reading Bringing Up Bébé by Pamela Druckerman, a book about French parenting, yesterday. I’ll probably finish it today after I’ve gone out to be social and run some errands. Having only one day off is a bit inconvenient, but I always want to be grateful since it could be a lot worse.
In terms of reading, I plan on reading Henry David Thoreau’s Walden for The Classics Club. This was one of two books on my classics spin that I did not physically own but had on Kindle. It does remind me to read more for the challenge from my own shelves though.
Forgot to mention the other week that I bought two more cookbooks. It has become major addiction for me as long as yarn and lip products. I’m now at my limit since I’ve taken space on a whole shelf for them; I really have two shelves. I’ve stopped myself from buying them for now. I do love their photos, the recipes, the food writing, and that lovely new book smell. Mmmm.
Have you bought any new books lately?
I do love collecting things….enjoy!
Love your blog header….
Here’s MY SUNDAY SALON POST
Hi Laurel! I love it too but I don’t have the space or the money for it really. Hehe! Which header did you see? There are a few that rotate on the blog. Have a good week!
I have resisted bookshops this year so far, but there have been some fab freebies on Amazon recently so my kindle TBR folder is looking rather full! I have a post scheduled for next week discussing all my new acquisitions 🙂
Hi Jessica! My book shopping usually centers in the summer used books season around here. I am off fiction this year, but not off non-fiction or cookbooks. So hard to give up books entirely. Enjoy your ebooks! 😀
