Welcome to another Coffee Chat, featuring our bookish and not so bookish thoughts, hosted by Bookishly Boisterous.
Wow, what a week! Errands, lunch out with my daughter on Monday; dinner out with my granddaughter Fiona on Tuesday; and a couple of really good books read and reviewed. The Promise Between Us, by Barbara Claypole White was captivating. (Click for my review).
- What is ahead for March? I am trying to read some of the books I ignored before, like books from last year. I wrote a post about My TBR for 2017. I read quite a few of the books I bought last year, but there are still a few unread ones. My Total Purchased Books for 2017: 149. My Total Unread Purchases for 2017: 41.
- I am also reading new books: Out of 14 book purchases in January, I’ve read 10. Of the 4 unread, one was a DNF. So: 3 to go!
- Today I started An Early Wake (e-book, County Cork #3), by Sheila Connolly, a book purchased in December 2017.
- Soon I hope to read An American Marriage, by Tayari Jones, a recent download.
- A book series I have loved over the years was Sue Grafton’s Alphabet Series, with Kinsey Millhone. I thought I had read most of the books, but did find one I had missed from the early part of the alphabet: K is for Killer.
- My plan is to gradually read all the ones I missed.
- The Hallmark show Home & Family is on in the background, and one of the guests just said that time spent on our cell phones can cause back pain...hmm. So, yes, according to an article I found on Spine Universe, by Googling the topic:
- I can think of other issues with cell phones…like does anyone even talk anymore? They don’t just stop talking on their phones, but the constant texting seems to be a substitute for person-to-person communication.
- When I had dinner with my granddaughter, Fiona, here’s what she was doing when I snapped the photo:
- Of course, I was also on my phone, taking the photo…LOL
- So…these are some of my thoughts on the first day of March…also, I am really excited that the TGIT line-up on TV is happening tonight!
What are your thoughts on March 1? What plans are ahead for you?
