Some of Bev's Favorite Quotes...

Attention All Challengers! 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.

Slowly, Slowly in the Wind by Patricia Highsmith

Currently Reading: 
Dancing with Death by Joan Coggin: Lady Lupin’s old pals, Tommy and Duds Lethbridge, having inherited a modest manor house in Buckinghamshire, decide to give an old-fashioned Christmas houseparty to help take their minds off the post-World War II English austerity. They’ve little food and even less strong drink but if their guests chip in their ration books, it looks like a good time could be had by all. Unfortunately, the party doesn’t go well at all, what with the guests, including two pretty young  twin sisters, constantly bickering . Duds can’t wait to see the last of her guests but when one of the sisters kills herself in the early hours of the New Year, she knows it’s time to summon  Lady Lupin, the pretty  young, scatterbrained wife of the vicar of Glanville. The coroner says suicide but Loops, who dabbles in detection, isn’t so sure.
