My reading doesn’t change much with the seasons and I don’t read spooky. But….I have had a roadblock….I had unexpected surgery for a detached retina this week. 😱 I’m taking at least a 2 week blog break.
Nice links, as usual.
Hi Gayla. Thanks again for these articles. Re reading, I don't like spooky or horror either, and actually am a total wimp about any sort of violence in a book, especially for bedtime reading, and it really can be a challenge finding things to read that I can enjoy. For you here's another Barbara Pym novel, probably her most famous--good story and no scary stuff: the title is "Excellent Women," and the subject is very narrow--English social stuff after World War II. Some critics say Pym is Jane Austen-y.
I’m sorry you had difficulty commenting. Surgery went ok….in the recovery phase now.
I’m finding it hard to read. I even tried the new Sheila Roberts Christmas story. But I just received approval today for the new Sara Ackerdon so that might do the trick!
Fun! Enjoyed the sunflower story!
