reading…june 2017

This post should really be called reading May and June 2017 because my reading efforts for May were so miserable I decided not to post about it. That’s not to say that what I read was miserable. Far from it. During May I read…

Book selection for September


Reading during September has been a bit of a struggle. I decided I needed a little bit of humour to lift my spirits out of the funk that ‘Ruby’ (Cynthia Bond) caused, so with that in mind, I went searching in the local library.…

Reading August…it’s been a busy month with the upgrade of my site, but it’s never too busy to pick up a book. I have to say my choices have been mediocre, which is disappointing, but that’s the nature of the game. You never really know…
