And I couldn't fall back asleep so up reading with my book light reading while the house is quiet.

Library haul today - one for IRL book club (A dictionary of mutual understanding), one I heard about on the @ReadingEnvy podcast ( Cape May) and sounded up my alley, and one I don‘t remember why I requested! Should be interesting! Lol #libraryday

Just finished the tagged book - such a cute story - written in 1916 and it's just a series of letters from an orphan girl to her mysterious benefactor! Highly recommend!

So apparently it's 15 steps from my kitchen to the living room. It's a start!
Not sure how much book I will be getting done next few days but think there may be a lot of steps as sadly I will be at my fathers wake and funeral today and tomorrow 😞🙏 (I'm ok - he's at peace after being stricken by Alzheimers and Parkinson's)

Good luck to all the #bookfitnesschallenge people ! You got this!

A Discovery of Witches | Deborah E. Harkness
post image

So I am liking this book even though it's taking me forever to read - been spending too much time on the iPad and watching tv-
I'm 3 books behind on my Goodreads challenge and just haven't been feeling like reading as much. Hopefully this slump will pass soon!

VanChocStrawberry I hate slumps! Usually something fluffy gets me going again. 4w
ShyBookOwl Slumps come and go. I tend to pick up a really short book (or a few!) to get through these periods. 4w
Riveted_Reader_Melissa Yea... I‘m behind this year too, just not in mood or don‘t have the time. Oh well 🤷‍♀️. Hopefully it will pick back up once things calm down a bit. 4w
MoonWitch94 Slumps are rough. I‘m having one too! This trilogy ((All Souls)) is one of my favorites! 3w
