Have you been reading more, or less, during this stay-at-home period?

I've been reading more too. Loving my books and finding them a great distraction. I enjoy Jane Green's books so must have a look for the title above.

Those covers cheer me up. Look at The Chef's Secret. And That Month in Tuscany. Fiction has not been working well for me, but I think I am going to look for those. I could use some escapist fiction, escaping into travel or food stories.

I feel like I am spending too much time in nonproductive activities. I feel inspired by reading others' posts, like yours, with your focus on reading. My comadre (my daughter-in-law's mother) is busily painting for the first time in forty years, and one of our blogging friends is writing a book, and here you are, reading like crazy. I need to focus!

Please have a safe week!

Your books are so colorful. I'm still not reading as much but I'm getting better. See what I've been up tp at Girl Who Reads.

They all look appealing, and it seems like a good variety.
I’ve been reading a little less with the kids home 24/7 sadly.

Several of these are on my never ending TBR list. Hope you have a nice Sunday.

I had such a hard time reading lately but I'm happy to see so many great books! I hope you enjoy them! :)

I think my reading has decreased but is picking up again now somewhat. I see Jane Green among your books and I do think I've read that one too.

Some weeks I read more but other weeks not much at all. i do like the sound of Paris by the Book!

Beverley Baird said...

Can't believe I haven't read any of these - will check them out. Have a great week of reading.

The Chef's Secret looks like a book that I would enjoy. Have a great week!

Kathy Martin said...

I seem to have discovered audiobooks and have read more since the Stay At Home order than I had previously read in my whole life. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

Becki said...

Looks like some good reading :) I don't think I've read any of those. Enjoy your week and stay safe!

Yay for books and audios to keep us busy. I am listening more, but still averaging two books a week.

Heather G. said...

Magpie Murders was very different and interesting. That Tuscany book looks great too! Glad you've been able to keep yourself occupied with lots of great reading!

My reading has been very up and down. Some days I'm just too distracted. I like the variety of genres you've been reading.

I went through a reading slump at the beginning of the quarantine, but I'm back in the swing again. It helps that I set aside 1 hour for my kids and I to all read silently together.
