Month in Review

Didn’t I just write a month in review post? This month went by so quickly. Anyway, I’m closing out the month feeling a bit more refreshed and excited. Must be the week off I had from work. Ha.

I spent my time working on crafty projects, visited Austin Creative Reuse (such a fun place) and spent time reading and napping. Oh and a visit to the library to renew my library card. Must always have an active library card, right? Believe it or not, no books were borrowed this time.

For May I finished four books: Small Mercies by Dennis Lehane, A Line in the Sand by Kevin Powers, The Last Thing He Told Me by Laura Dave and The 6:41 to Paris by Jean-Phillippe Blondel; translated by Allison Anderson. My favorites were Small Mercies and The 6:41 to Paris.

Now to think about June and some of the things I have in mind. There’s Cathy’s 20 Books of Summer challenge which I am joining but still putting together my list of potential reads so stay tuned for that. I’m also looking forward to a bookbinding class I’m taking at the Austin Book Arts Center. I’ve been doing a lot of crafting this year but not as much bookbinding (yet!). Along with this class, I’ve also signed up for a monthly online bookbinding workshop and my best friend gave me a book on bookbinding projects. I think all signs point to more book making in my future and I’m ready for it! I’ll tell you more about all of that in another post.

Anyway, here’s to lots of great reads next month! Let me know what you are looking forward to this summer.
