Hubby came back from his walk yesterday morning and showed me pictures of bins of books he'd seen at a garage sale in his meanderings. I quickly told him what authors I liked before heading off to work while he returned to pick up a few. A few? When I got home, he lead me into our bedroom and showed the haul. He'd gone back with a backpack and stuffed it full. Thanks honey. I love you too! Gee, I won't have to buy any more books for
This past week I finished number eight in the Wheel of Time series - The Path of Daggers - in which Elayne and Nynaeve find the bowl of winds, Rand continues to win allies and fight enemies, Egwene proves she is capable of being the Amyrlin Seat and Perrin works to find and stop Masema Dagar, the self-proclaimed Prophet of the Dragon. I'm still trying to wrap my head around the visual of Rand and others moving thousands of troops and all that accompany them through the gates. The series continues to fascinate and entertain.
I dove back into October Daye's world with Ashes of Honor written by Seanan McGuire. October is searching for another lost child and trying to stay one step of head of those trying to stop and kill her.
I also started reading Dorothy Dunnett's historical novel - Niccolo Rising - in her House of Niccolo series, which is set in the 15th century. Much like Ben Kane historical novels, it is well written and one of those hard to put down, forget what time it is, and stay up way past your bedtime reads.
Speaking of Dorothy, she is the author of the month and highlighted on 52 Books this week.
James scored four video games, a few books, and several comic books for his birthday, plus a gift certificate from his grandpa. Now he's contemplating what to buy next. I advised no more video games for a while. Then realized my books are his video games. There are always unread books on my shelves just waiting for me to read. Such a hard life.
I found this adorable picture of mom and James on his 1st birthday. I missing mom today as its the anniversary of her 86th birthday. I'm sure she is having a grand party up in heaven with her folks and brothers and sister. Love ya, mom!
