Good morning! Today’s post will link up to The Sunday Salon and The Sunday Post for weekly updates.

Mailbox Monday is hosted at the home site: Mailbox Monday.

And let’s join Kathryn, our leader in It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?, at Book Date.



As I sit at my computer, eating a turkey pot pie for lunch with a glass of Cabernet, I am wondering where the week went, since I only read and reviewed one book and wrote just four blog posts.  I must admit to lots of binge-watching, from another episode of Better Call Saul’s Season 6, and the seven seasons of Mad Men finally completed again.  I couldn’t stop watching that show, which I saw in its entirety back in 2015…and found myself completely wrapped up in the sixties and seventies again.

I stayed up late watching every night, which cut into my reading (and sleeping) time.  And despite my desire to go out shopping, I didn’t leave my apartment once!  All of my groceries were delivered, of course, and I did do a little bit of cleaning.

So now what?  Well, let’s grab a beverage and take a look at my posts and one review:







Review:  The Last to Vanish, by Megan Miranda

Book Lovers, by Emily Henry

The Couple at No. 9, by Claire Douglas (currently reading)


That was my week.  What did yours look like?  As I plan for shopping excursions, I am remembering the beautiful sofa bed I once had, photo on left.  And hope to find something like that one.

  1. Weeks go so quickly don’t they? I have just come back from holiday. It was over in a flash!
    Book Lovers was a good book. I have things that I want to watch on TV, but I have Blog Tours and a Buddy read to get through! I find that I don’t miss TV. I probably watched enough when I was on maternity leave with my son (although that was 4 years ago now!).

    Have a great week!

    1. Thanks, Mary, glad to hear it. I agree that binge-viewing is a good way to spend time, and lately I’ve been watching shows that I’ve already seen, like Mad Men…and today I started on The Gilmore Girls. Enjoy your week.


  2. To me, this week felt very long!! Strange how that can happen…

    Once again, you’ve got the best books! Will take a look at the The Couple at No 9.

    I remember only watching a couple of episodes of Mad Men, I think I need to start it again and just finish the serious. I love the fifties and sixties!!

    Have a good week and happy reading.

    I liked Book Lovers and hope you do too. I got out last week much more than usual since a friend was visiting. I’m glad to stay home this week. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  4. If you only finish one book, it’s wonderful that it’s a 5-star read. The Last to Vanish must be really good. I hope you enjoy Book Lovers, too. I thought the two main characters had fun conversations.

    I have often thought about watching Mad Men. One of these days.

    I do hope you are able to find a sofa-bed just like your old one.

  5. The Couple at No 9 is on my TBR. It looks like such a great read. I go through phases where I’m binging shows and that does cut into my reading but I figure it’s okay to get a break now and then! Have a great week!

  6. I love staying in. The pandemic was good for me in that way! If I were retired, I would spend days on end at home. I’ve been reading a lot, but not blogging, so four posts in one week seems great to me!
