Weekend Recap

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI hope you’ve all been having a great weekend. If you have a three day weekend, lucky you! I wish I did but oh well, it’s back to work.

Anyway, I did have a very nice weekend although believe it or not I actually told my husband I couldn’t make it to the bookstore for our regular date night. What is wrong with me? Well, I was afraid to go to the bookstore and be distracted by all the shiny new books and I am a bit behind on my book for my reading group which I’m leading this month. So instead we went to a local coffee shop and had a great afternoon. Best thing is that I’m not so behind on my book now.

I do have a small poetry collection among my shelves which includes books from Pablo Neruda, Emily Dickinson, Billy Collins, several collections and also several collections in Spanish. Or, I could also take a look at this list of the best poetry books of 2015 and see what sounds good to me. I can already tell you that Mary Oliver’s book is going on my list.

I’ll probably see if my library has any of these books. Speaking of the library, I had more books to pick up this weekend. Oh my, I think I better get back to reading now. Hope you have a wonderful start of the week!
