This year marks five years of retirement, but it never feels like summer to me until school's out. Thursday was the last day of school here, so I am officially announcing that it's time to let the summer reading begin.
I hope that, wherever you are in the world, and whether you are doing summer reading or winter reading, you will get time to enjoy some good books in the next few months.
What I Finished Last Week:
Isaac's Storm: A Man, a Time, and the Deadliest Hurricane in History by Erik Larson (Naturalist Book Club)
The People's Hospital: Hope and Peril in American Medicine by Richardo Avila (Current Nonfiction)
Links will take you to my reviews of these two excellent nonfiction books.
What I'm Reading Now:
The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas (Classic)
How the Light Gets in: Writing as a Spiritual Practice by Pat Schneider (Writing)
Mrs. Bridge by Evan Connell (Super Past Due Reviews)
The Last Mapmaker by Christina Soontornvat (Children's Fiction)
The Globetrotter's Guide to Happiness by Kate Morgan (Happiness)
Food Americana by David Page (Cook the Books Bookclub)
Last week I posted here at Readerbuzz:
Good Thing #1
We had a fantastic time at a
day of advanced training for my naturalist group,
A Look Back at Texas History, last Saturday.
And I took home an Amazon gift card for
my display, Slavery: The Worst of Evils,
that I shared with the group.
Good Thing #2
Good Thing #3
My grand-dog, Jordan,
is happy that we will be spending time with family
this Memorial Day weekend.
I'm happy you joined us here at the Sunday Salon. Sunday Salon is a place to link up and to share what we have been doing during the week. It's a great way to visit other blogs and join in the conversations going on there.
Some of the things we often talk about at the Sunday Salon:
- What was your week like?
- Read any good books? Tell us about them.
- What other bookish things did you do?
- What else is going on in your life?
