Winter isn’t far away. We have had intense rain squalls this week, and, unusual for Seattle, lots of thunder and lightning. There have been many children staying home with fevers and coughs but I seem to have avoided getting sick so far. Must be all that hand washing and vitamin C.
This week I wrote several reviews, read The Ask and The Answer by Patrick Ness, Stitches by Davis Small and about 100 pages of the second book of Kristin Lavransdatter. I also picked up a pile of books at the library including:
Sweeping Up Glass by Carolyn Wall. This is a mystery written in a style reviewers have compared with Flannery O’Conner and Harper Lee.
The Music Room by William Fiennes. A memoir written by the author of The Snow Geese, a book I read in September. This is the story of William’s older brother, Richard, who suffers from epilepsy.
One of the books I’m reading right now is Guernica by David Boling. This is a LibraryThing early reviewer book that got lost in my TBR stack. Must finish and review soon!
