Good morning! It is almost February, and here I sit, having awakened early enough to write my review of The Dry (click!); add some new books to my stacks (more about those tomorrow); and participate in the Tuesday Excerpts event.
I hope to soon read some of the books shown in the photo above…maybe in February.
Today I’ll be running some end-of-the-month errands, including picking up some meds at Kaiser, where I hope to time it just right to avoid the sometimes lengthy lines.
My cold seems to be dying…or dead. I am at the point where my constant allergies are still here, of course, and they resemble the cold in some ways. But I slept last night…really well. And didn’t wake up with the breathing challenges I have faced this past week.
Could I celebrate?
I just started reading a very quirky book called Lillian Boxfish Takes a Walk, by Kathleen Rooney.
She’s the perfect quirky character for this blog. I love this excerpt:
A love letter to city life in all its guts and grandeur, Lillian Boxfish Takes a Walk by Kathleen Rooney paints a portrait of a remarkable woman across the canvas of a changing America: from the Jazz Age to the onset of the AIDS epidemic; the Great Depression to the birth of hip-hop.
Lillian figures she might as well take her time. For now, after all, the night is still young.
How are you celebrating the end of the month? What lovely books await you on your stacks?
