    • getting in the habit of doing it along the book for books read, things posted on the week, so Sat pm just need to touch up and do the stats part, and I schedule to come up during the early hours when I’m still in bed. well, or just in bed. went to bed this morning at 1:30, just 30 mn before it went live, because I could not put down Crossing The Line… Yeah, I’m THAT bad…

  1. I see you’re listening to Gabrielle Zevin’s latest book. I’m listening to the third book of her Birthright trilogy. It’s good! Hope you’re enjoying the audiobook. Lots of good books on your reading list!

  2. Still Life sounds nice, I always enjoy finding a new mystery and this one sounds good. Some of your additions caught my eye as well- When God Spoke English I’m curious to read about the historical details, and Station Eleven seems to be getting some good buzz as well.

  3. I didn’t realize that you were an audiobook listener too! I’ll be sure to check out your review of The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry, because I haven’t discovered Jim Broadbent’s narration yet, and I am always on the look-out for new performers to stalk. Have an excellent week!

  4. Awesome week as always.

    Pretty neat how Madame Picasso was the most read review this week. I like your feature. Nice idea. CONGRATS to the winner of the giveaway

    I wonder what most of mine was the most visited. I guess I should check more often.

    ENJOY your week.

    Giveaway going on at my blog until Thursday for Accidents of Marriage if anyone wants to stop by.

  5. I hope you’re enjoying AJ Fikry! I haven’t heard anything about the audiobook but I really enjoyed reading it. It’s one of those that was just so comfortable for a booklover.
