Welcome to another Coffee Chat, in which we share bookish and not so bookish thoughts. Head on over to Bookishly Boisterous to add your link.
Moving along, reading and blogging more, and planning ahead for the upcoming surgery (hopefully). I have a telephone consultation on Friday…and an in-person consult on 10/2 with the Bay Area physicians. Evenings are pleasant, with Amazon Prime videos and the ongoing saga of Mary Tyler Moore. However, as much as I loved the show back in the day, I am sometimes annoyed with how “too nice” Mary is…and I really can’t stand Ted Baxter. LOL. I’m pretty sure I didn’t like him in the 70s, either. But I do love seeing the settings, the outfits and the hairstyles, and immersing myself in the memories of that time…nostalgia rules!
- So far I’ve read and reviewed two books…and written six blog posts. The books: The Favorite Daughter, by Patti Callahan Henry; and Seven Letters, by J. P. Monninger (NG-10/8). (Click titles for reviews).
- I am currently reading a Marcia Clark book that has been on my Kindle for a while: Without a Doubt, the story of the O.J. Simpson trial. In a case that tore America apart, and that continues to haunt us as few events of history have, Marcia Clark emerged as the only true heroine, because she stood for justice, fought the good fight, and fought it well.
- While visiting blogs this morning, I discovered a new Elizabeth Berg book that will be released on 11/19: The Confession Club is Book 3, following up on the setting and characters of The Story of Arthur Truluv and Night of Miracles. Of course I added it to my list.
- I have a nice little stack of hardcover books (and paperbacks) to read soon. Check out how great they look on my nightstand:
- This week I spent time changing up a couple of my blogs. Here is my new header at Potpourri. I feel whimsical now!
That was my week…so far. What did yours look like?
