Reading The Witch Elm in the story book garden behind this library. The stands you see have a cool new science fiction version of Cinderella on them. Each stand has a different page and all have a translation in Braille. Nice place to sit on a bench and read.

#24in48 #challenge. I am giving my eyes a rest with Year of Yes on audiobook. I can only do memoir on audiobook specifically read by the author. I space out too much with fiction and miss too much. I get all my audiobooks from the Library and play them on Libby.

Heat wave here so wrapping up The Hazel Wood here in the cool cool library. I always feel a little odd reading on the kindle in the library but it is on loan from the library. Any one else feel the same?

Fascinated by the Lily chapters, not so much by the Julia chapters. I loved the behind the scenes look at the circus life... one of my reading wheel houses. The beer was very good.

Part 2 of a 2 book series. Black Out #1 All Clear #2. I‘ve seen reviews that are harsh on the editing of both but I still enjoyed it. Rumor has it it was supposed to be one book but got too lengthy. I was sad and happy at the end. Also I thought I got the Blitz... I had no clue (probably still don‘t) until I read these two books.

bookishkris Love love love these books! I don‘t know why people harsh on the endings, I quite liked them. 3mo

Excellent short stories and I don‘t like short stories as a rule. That may say more about me than short stories. And what is that strange light hitting my book?

Nice end paper. Can‘t go wrong with a book where the main character is given Call of the Wild by her Dad and finds the Cremation of Sam McGee in the 10 cent bin once her family moves to Alaska. Some tough subject matter... just a heads up.
