Welcome to another Coffee Chat, in which I will share how my reading and viewing is going.  Meanwhile, it is raining outside, and the forecast reveals more storms ahead.  Sigh.  I have my garbage ready to go out, and I’ll try to wait for a slight diminishing of the rain to head out.  I am also expecting an e-bay order to arrive in the mail today, so that will need to be timed, too.  My lovely Engelbreit cookie jar is headed my way! Below, right, is the one I found and ordered.  I’ll keep looking for the other one.

  • Meanwhile, I am reading my First Book of the Year, A Good Neighborhood, by Therese Anne Fowler.  I am more than halfway finished.  Primarily because I am reading from the Kindle version, a decision I made after I realized how reading from print was hard on my eyes!  Have you ever done that?  Ordered a Kindle version of a hardcover print that you own?
  • Last night I also watched a movie on Hulu, an older one based on a Nicholas Sparks novel, The Best of Me.  I was sobbing by the end.  Those Sparks novels tend to do that.
  • Lately I stay up late, usually until 11:30 or so; I fall asleep better if I don’t go down too soon.  I still wake up at 6:30 a.m.
  • My No. 2 son is coming to visit us again, later in the month.  It has been great to enjoy more family time.  My Murphy bed is getting a good workout!


How is your first week of the year unfolding?



  1. I’ve actually been replacing a lot of my print TBR books for ebooks for just that reason that they are easier on my eyes! I don’t think I’ve replaced a hardback book, but I have replaced a number of paperbacks. Most of the new books coming in at this point are ebooks. Then, if I read something I want on my keeper shelf, I find a print copy (preferably in good condition at the library book sale, so it is only a few dollars!)

    1. Thanks, Kathryn, I had originally been searching for a sofa bed, but the wait time was going to be three months, so I decided to go with the Murphy. So glad I did! Two sons have used it more than once, and my granddaughter is planning to try it out, too.
