Last Monday of January! What happened there? I would say I’m looking forward to cooler weather but we’ve been pretty lucky over the last week with a few surprise storms. I’m also looking forward to a couple of days off after a convoluted shift swap (all I know is holiday now, work later).
I received one book in the mail this week from Hardie Grant and The Reading Room. Clara Bensen’s No Baggage is a memoir/travel adventure of meeting an unconventional university professor and then travelling to eight countries in three weeks with no luggage. It sounds really fun and perhaps I’ll learn to pack a bit lighter!
I also finally managed to track down the last two books in Elena Ferrante’s Neapolitan quartet, Those Who Leave and Those Who Stay
and The Story of the Lost Child. I’m not game to read the back cover blurbs because I don’t want spoilers, but they continue the story of Lila and Elena.
If you want to check out more exciting bookshelves, do drop by the Mailbox Monday blog for links to everyone’s mailbox goodies. Overseen by Vicki (I’d Rather Be at the Beach), Leslie (Under My Apple Tree) and Serena (Savvy Verse & Wit), I’m sure you’ll find many books for the wish list!
What I Read Last Week:
Me Talk Pretty One Day by David Sedaris
What I’m Reading at the Moment:
The Versions of Us by Laura Barnett (will finish this week)
The Story of a New Name by Elena Ferrante
No idea! (I only start thinking about new books when I’m near the end of my current read).
