Some of Bev's Favorite Quotes...



Attention All Challengers! S0....life here on the Block has been, shall we say, challenging since I got back from vacation. I cam back to work to no computer (not hooked up after our office move) and my laptop at home has gone on strike. It looks like the Check-in Posts for the Just the Facts & Mount TBR challenges will wind up happening at the end of July instead of the regularly scheduled mid-point. But they are coming. Stay tuned!

It's Monday! What Are You Reading?


It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is a bookish meme hosted by Book Journey. It's where we gather to share what we have read this past week and what we plan to read this week. It's a great way to network with other bloggers, see some wonderful blogs, and put new titles on your reading list. So hop on over via the link above and join in...and leave a comment here so I can check out what you are reading


Books Read Last Week (click on titles for review):
Vane Pursuit by Charlotte MacLeod
Who Needs Donuts? by Mark Alan Stamaty
Death of a Chimney Sweep by M. C. Beaton

Triumphs of FDR's Great Supreme Court Justices by Noah Feldman
The Last Matryoshka by Joyce Yarrow
Therapy by David Lodge
The Herring in the Library by L. C. Tyler

Currently Reading:
Robert Kennedy in His Own Words: The Unpublished Recollections of the Kennedy Years by Edwin O. Guthman & Jeffrey Shulman (eds): In these never-before-published transcripts of lively, extensive interviews originally recorded in the mid-1960s for the John F. Kennedy Library, Robert Kennedy explains his own role in his brother's administration, from the Bay of Pigs to the civil rights campaign to the early years of American involvement in Vietnam. This is a crucial document for understanding a turbulent and dramatic period of American history.

Seven Gothic Tales by Isak Dinesen
The Affair of the 39 Cufflinks by James Anderson
Curious Death of Peter Artedi: A Mystery in the History of Science by Theodor W. Pietsch
