Good morning! Today’s post will link up to The Sunday Salon, The Sunday Post and Stacking the Shelves, for weekly updates.
**Mailbox Monday is hosted at the home site: Mailbox Monday.
And let’s join Kathryn, our leader in It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?, at Book Date.
Wow, what a slow reading week I had! But I savored my ONE book read (and reviewed it), so I guess it’s all good. I was swept along by the beach scenes in the novel, and felt as though I were there with the characters. I could almost smell the sweet salt air.
Hot days here were my coming-back-to-reality moments, and I stayed inside except for brief outings to the shops.
Then came the fabulous e-mail with an Amazon credit, due to a settlement with Apple e-books. Yay! I’ll bet you can imagine my “click to buy” delight.
There was Netflix viewing, of course, and I finished Revenge, started Orange Is the New Black.-Season 4..and then stopped. Taking a break, but I’ll get back to it soon.
But first, let’s savor each day, especially Coffee Mornings like this one, in my newly created dining space:

I’ve been a mood reader lately…so I can visualize these books coming up next. A review book, of course, and then…who knows? But I like the “perfect” theme I’ve got going on…like last month’s “girls” theme:
