Happy Sunday everyone – and Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms in the UK, of which I’m one…meaning today has started well with breakfast in bed and almond croissants. Now I’m just hoping the weather holds out as we’re due to make our first English Heritage visit of the year today. It feels like a nice end to a busy week- mainly work but I also got to celebrate a friend’s engagement with cocktails in a rather swish bar in London (at rather un-swish prices I must say but then it is London).
This meant I spent a lot of time on trains and should have had lots of time to read. However, I was in a bit of a reading slump for some reason so, other than The Well (which I did an intro for Tuesday), I didn’t read much else. When I got home, all I wanted to do was veg in front of the tv, especially now House of Cards is back!
I did, conversely, do a fair bit of book buying, picking up Driven by James Sallis, the follow-up to Drive (which I loved), Smoke by Catherine McKenzie, which I’ve been wanting to read for a while, and The Heart Goes Last by Margaret Atwood, my favourite author probably ever (links are to good reads).
Hopefully I’ll get round to reading one or more of them this week. what about you? What are your reading plans this week?
This week, I’m linking in with Kimba at the Caffeinated Book Reviewer and her Sunday Post and with (a little early) Katherine at Book Date for It’s Monday, What Are you Reading? Head over to see what other bloggers have read, written about or just added to their shelves.
