Summer is half over. I don’t know where it has gone.
The weather changed this week, cloudy gray mornings with a bit of sun in the afternoon. It is much cooler, allowing me to get some work done in the garden. The heat wave fried some of my container plants while others just thrived. We have some small orange tomatoes. The plants starts were a gift and I don’t know the variety but they are like candy, absolutely lovely.
I finished the Lost In Translation challenge. I absolutely loved this challenge, will probably keep adding links to my reviews for books in translation and plan on joining in again next year.
This week I reviewed two novels, a graphic novel and The Part About Fate by Roberto Bolano for the 2666 read along. It feels good to be writing two to three reviews a week, just right for me. Now I have to get back to writing poetry and get that web site going!
As for what I’m reading right now I’m finishing up The Road to Oxiana by Robert Byron, am half way through The Girl Who Played With Fire by Stieg Larsson and just started Yellowknife by Steve Zipp. These are all wonderful and very different books. What are you reading?
