Mailbox Monday,
It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?
and WWW Wednesdays

Wow, time flies! Looks like I have not done a Sunday post since last July…
Lots is happening right now: humming along between several clients and novels to translate.
And after a MAJOR computer crash, which ultimately was a wonderful spiritual experience, believe it or not, an experience of detachment and a lesson in dying,
I’m back into business, plugging along in Blogging 101 University, learning lots of new things (a new theme IS going to show up soon on this blog, finally!), and trying to be more active in memes.
So far, I’m also following my resolution of writing  review as soon as I am done with a book, before diving headlong into the next – this is harder than you think!
Also catching up slowly but surely with reviews I should have posted in 2015, exactly what I plan on avoiding at the turn of next year! Discipline discipline!

  1. Lots of interesting books here to look over. I see you read and reviewed Nancy Drew- I enjoy those (and the Hardy boys) for nostalgia purposes, although they are dated. Nice to see your thoughts on it. I re- read some similar books earlier this year and I had to remember the age group they were for or it would have been hard to get through. Still it was nice to revisit.

    Have a great week.

  2. So many interesting books! The World Between Two Covers sounds especially tempting. Enjoy your reading this week. My own reading has been on the back burner a bit.

    • I put it in the section Just Read and mentioned that if you click on the covers you can access my review. So as said there, no i didn’t like it. There’s been quite of a discussion on that in the comments n that review, if you are interested
