Summer Reading, So Shall I


Five books. Five books. Five books. A happy song for me.

I bought five books, a buck a book, from the local Friends of the Library the other day. It took all of five minutes, a minute a book, to decide I wanted them. Hurrah, hurrah!

Molly the Cat likes the titles, too.  So it seems.

I'm still working on Anne Perry's latest Daniel Pitt novel, Triple Jeopardy, set in London in the early 1900s. If you read Perry's Charlotte and Thomas Pitt series, which was based in the 19th century at the end of Queen Victoria's reign, you may like the Daniel Pitt series. Daniel is a 20-ish attorney who is Charlotte's and Thomas's son. So far, his parents play a minor, but still very important, role in the series.

Once I'm done with Triple Jeopardy, I'll start on one of the five books. Which shall be first: Everything is Beautiful, by Mira T. Lee; Pride vs. Prejudice, by Joan Hess; Major Pettigrew's Last Stand, by Helen Simonson; I Feel Bad About My Neck, by Nora Ephron; or Miracle at the Higher Grounds Cafe by Max Lucado?

I wonder which one Molly prefers?

It's Monday Mosaic day, hosted by the delightful Angie of Letting Go of the Bay Leaf. Check out the meme here. Thanks, Angie!


  1. I recently saw a documentary on Nora Ephron done by her son. (The book was referenced in the doc.) She was a fascinating woman.

  2. Enjoy your book find. I am reading now The soul of the rose by Ruth Trippy
    Happy mosaic Monday


  3. I love good book recommendations, and it looks like you picked up some really interesting books at your library sale.,

  4. Enjoy your reading and the major deal you got. Moly looks pleased

  5. Su-sieeemac - I can feel your enthusiasm way over here in Montana. Whoo-hoo! Five adventures await; all you have to do is open the cover. It seems to me that Molly prefers "Everything is Beautiful" … maybe the previous owner was a cat lover and she is picking up something? Thanks for adding your post to Mosaic Monday - it's always a delight to have you!

  6. I love books! When I was working I did not have time to read a lot, but now that I am retired, I am trying to catch up! I would start with the Max Lucado, but on second thought - save the best for last!
    Have a wonderful week!

  7. I've read some of the ones you bought and loved them. Now I think I need to see if I can find some of the Anne Perry books. I'd probably like them too! I've been in a slump, reading the first 70 or so pages of books that I couldn't finish. I hate when that happens! lol Hugs!

  8. such richness! Thanks for the recommendation

  9. So many delicious choices. :) . . . happy reading in a comfy chair in the back yard. :)

  10. Oh Molly's expression is Purrfect, I think she is looking for the one that will make the best bed! How wonderful to have a summer of Good reads. Enjoy!

    this is good.

  12. Summer is coming! I am so ready=D

  13. I read the Nora Ephron years ago. The title spoke to me and I was not disappointed. she was so good. Joan Hess is one of those authors who is always reliable if you like cozy mysteries (and I do). Happy reading!
