What I’ve Been Up To

I finished two books this weekend, Murder in Chinatown by Victoria Thompson and The Sonnet Lover by Carol Goodman. Both were good reads although I’ve liked some of their other books better. Still, I’ll be awaiting their next books. If you click on the book links you can see more of my thoughts on each.

Know what else I did? I finally posted pictures from my trip to Monterrey. That seems like ages ago. Hope you like the pics and thank you to my sweet husband who helped me post these.

Today while checking out news on the Internet I learned that Jane Magazine is closing shop with their August issue being the last one. I wasn’t a big fan of Jane but still it’s always a bit of a bummer to see another magazine bite the dust. All I have to say is that my crafty & indie magazines better be safe!

And, today was another good book day as my order from The Book Depository arrived! I got Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day by Winifred Watson. I’ve been wanting this book for a while and it’s nice to add it to my Persephone collection. The other two were Hesperus Press books, Life in the Country by Giovanni Verga and The Three-Cornered Hat by Pedro Antonio de Alarcon.

I think I’m in for some good reading.
