You got some really great books. We would normally be doing yard work this time of year, but our yard is covered in leaves. the leaves are already changing and falling and the shrubs and things are dying off too. I see an early winter coming our way. Ugh... Have a wonderful week.

Happy readin',

I an so sad to see the words "end of summer". I have been really enjoying the warm weather this year.

I have finished a limited number of books this year, partially because I spent a lot of time reading a 941 page translation of Don Quixote.

Enjoy your week, and here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

All new to me - the Krauss book sounds very different so I'll be interested in reading reviews. Hope you love all of them!
