It never rains but it pours...

Currently in my bag:
The Haunting of Hill House - Shirley Jackson
Matilda Bone - Karen Cushman

On my nightstand:
The Midwife’s Apprentice - Karen Cushman
The Street of a Thousand Blossoms - Gail Tsukiyama
The House of the Scorpion - Nancy Farmer
Bridge of Sighs - Richard Russo
Summertime - Raffaela Barker

Waiting for me at the library:
Beneath the Skin - Nicci French
The Nubian Prince - Juan Bonilla
Farthing - Jo Walton
The Lightning Thief - Rick Riordan


In other news, today is my last Saturday at the library.
I am a little sad, but mostly relieved. Maybe now I can finish up some of those projects around the house I never seem to have time for.

Congrats on your retirement - for awhile or forever! And I've been 'retired' for 5 years - the piles of to do get bigger and bigger.
Not much time to comment these days.

Oh, I LOVED The Lightning Thief, and can't wait for the library to buy the next 2 in the series. As for Nicci French, it will be interesting to see what you think. I've read every one of their (husband/wife team) books from the beginning so I'm sort of hooked.

If you never sleep you might get to those chores. How I wish we never had to sleep.

Our children would have to but we wouldn't.
