It's Monday! What are you reading? - July 10, 2017


This was a slow reading week. I'm plodding along with Princes at War and hoping to finish it up soon. I had a week off from listening to One Summer because my digital checkout through the library expired and I had to wait for another copy to become available so I could pick it back up.

Currently Reading:

Title: Princes at War: The Bitter Battle Inside Britain's Royal FAmily in the Darkest Days of WWII
Author: Deborah Cadbury
Date Started: June 22, 2017
Note: Reading this on my lunch breaks so it's slow going.

Title: All He Needs
Author: Shirley Hailstock
Date Started: July 9, 2017


Currently Listening:

Title: One Summer: America, 1927
Author: Bill Bryson
Date Started: June 18, 2017


Finished Reading:

TitleEmpty Places
Author: Richard Parks
Date Finished: July 5, 2017
Note: LeVar Burton Reads Podcast. 2 parts

Title: Audubon, On The Wings Of The World
Author: Fabien Grolleau
Date Finished: July 8, 2017
Note: Loved the artwork, wasn't thrilled with the pace of the story. Also it always makes me a bit sad to know that while Audubon loved animals he killed so many birds to make his prints.

Blind Date with a Book

Last year I put together a book display called Blind Date with a Book.  I found the idea through another librarian's post and thought it was great.  Last year I wrapped 19 books and 15 books were checked out.  We asked that people reviewed the book but unfortunately only two people returned reviews.
Last year's books included:

In the Hot Zone by Kevin SitesNight by Elie WieselTom Clancy's Ghost Recon by Daivd MichaelsMacbeth by ShakespearA Million Little Pieces by James FreyWolf Hall by Hilary MantelAn Inconvenient Truth by Al GoreUnder the Dome by Stephen KingLawless by Nora RobertsThe Sinatra Files by Tom KuntzThe Help by Kathryn StockettThe Dante Club by Matthew PearlFord County by John GrishamThe Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel BarberyThe Postmistress by Sarah BlakeA Beautiful Mind by Sylvia NasarHide & Seek by James PattersonA Vintage Affair by Isabel WolfGorgeous East by Robert Girardi Most of these books were ones that I either had read or wanted to read.

Peek Inside a Book - Black Hills

Linking up to both Book Beginnings on Friday from Rose City Reader and The Friday 56 with Freda's Voice.


This week the book Black Hillsby Nora Roberts caught my eye.

It Begins: 1 South Dakota June 1989
Cooper Sullivan's Life, as he'd know it, was over. Judge and jury -- in the form of his parents -- had not been swayed by please, reason, temper, threats, but instead had sentenced him and shipped him off, away from everything he knew and cared about to a world without video parlors or Big Macs.
On Page 56 (56%): Lil's first look at the cat took her breath away. Sleek, muscular, her eyes tawny glints, Cleo sat in her travel cage like royalty on a throne.
