It's been so long since I posted anything that I've almost forgotten how to do it! The day's not over, but here's my list of books finished in August.
Juggling - Barbara Trapido
The Judas Cat - Dorothy Salisbury Davis
A Chill Rain in January - L. R. Wright
Murder and Mendelssohn - Kerry Greenwood
Moranthology - Caitlin Moran
The Hidden Child - Camilla Lackberg
Heaven's Keep - William Kent Krueger
The Thai Amulet - Lyn Hamilton
There were some decently entertaining books in the group and several that didn't measure up. As you can see, I was escaping into mysteries once again. Those are my comfort reads.
I can't believe that summer's almost over. This weekend is Labor Day which, to many of us, signals the end of summer. It shouldn't for me since I'm all but retired. It's hard to shake those old habits, though. At this time of year, I'm always gripped by the urge to buy pencils and notebooks and other school supplies, even though I haven't seen the inside of a school for almost fifty years.
I will, however, be glad to see an end to the high heat and humidity that ruined the summer for me. My body has never been able to deal with those things. I melt into a moaning heap. I long for some cool breezes and cloudy weather. Our city house has no outdoor space to speak of. I long for big trees and rustling leaves, shade, peace and quiet.
