New Books and Babies

How was your week for books everyone?  It seemed like I got more reading time in this week than I usually do -- mostly because I got to listen to a couple of audio books at work (not completely), but was at least 14 hours worth between 2 books -- California; E. Lepucki and All Fall Down; Jennifer Weiner.  I'm reserving my comments until I'm done.  I also finished, The Conditions of Love; Dale Kushner (which I loved but need to review) and The Marrying of Chani Kaufman; Eve Harris (very good - need to review).

In progress is The Story Hour; Thrity Umrigar and Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage; Murakami.

These are the new books that arrived by mail last week.

Happy Reading!

(6) weeks and (3) months
Have a Great Week!

    I'm not getting as much reading done lately, but I've been tired because life is hectic right now. We leave for vacation next Monday, so hopefully I'll catch up a bit.

    Thanks for visiting The Busy Mom's Daily.

  23. Wondering what you thought of All Fall Down and California. Both are on my radar, but I haven't bought or picked up yet.

    Those babies are just too cute! You are doubly blessed with 2 wonderful grandkids and close in age to be buddies possibly when they grow up :)

  28. I almost requested Man V Nature, but I'm getting so backed up again in print books that I passed. I'll wait and see how you like it. :)

    I read Lighthouse Island last year. It had so much potential, but the execution failed for me, in several ways. Can't wait to see what you think of it.

  29. Ahhhh....I love the baby bookworms. So sweet...thanks for sharing.

    How is The Story Hour? I am about to start it.

    Lighthouse Island looks incredibly good. I love books with lighthouses in them.

    ENJOY your books and those adorable babies.

    1. Elizabeth - I enjoyed The Story Hour, but must admit that the poor English of the central character was a bit off-putting to read at time. It is a great story though (review coming soon)

      Thanks for the sweet baby comments
