Another week, Another stack of books!

I love checking out a big stack of books at the library.

I don’t always read every one of them but this week I did finish a couple and updated my Goodreads page on my sidebar.

I am loving the Maisie Dobbs mystery series by Jacqueline Winspear. Elegy for Eddie is my favorite one so far.

We also watched ‘Endeavour’ and thoroughly enjoyed it. I’m glad PBS is still producing this series! YAY!!!

I’m joining Ricki Jill for Literary Friday.

You always have an interesting stack of books picked out. Were your parents big readers too?

We love the Endeavour series! Great stories and acting! Love your stack of books photo. I have seen some homes without books. Doesn't seem complete without a stack of books! Have a wonderful weekend, Diane.

I love Jacqueline Winspear but our library doesn't have them so I never got beyond the first and second which I had. I should recheck as maybe they do now. I need to start over and order them from Thrift Books if the library doesn't have them.
I watched Endeavor last Sunday night. Another thing our library doesn't have....PBS shows on DVD. I love many of the PBS series but I can't afford to buy them. I guess I need to move to a town that has a bigger library! LOL! Or that has my tastes. Between your thrift stores and your library and your hiking paths, it sounds like you live in an area I would love except for the heat.LOL!

You have some great reads. I am wondering why am not reading so much. Oh. It is summer and we have nearly an acre of garden to take care of. When I an shut in, then I will dig into my stack. I have two Phillipa Gregorys to read. Have a great week end.

Vee said...

Oh I have nothing to say about any of this...other than that I am impressed with anyone who reads. What I will say is what a darling header!

Primitive Stars said...

Great reads, love curling up with a good book, Blessings Francine.

Susan said...

These days, I only read when I'm flying--which was last week and I got to finish a whole book! Makes me yearn for more time because I love to read, XOXO

Joyce Mayer said...

Hello my dear friend,

Tis a good day to curl up with a good book up here in the mountains, a cool and rainy day.

Happy Weekend.

Hugs

I love to read fantasy and young adult stuff. I don't think I can ever have enough books in my house but now they are going into boxes. Too many!!

Linda H said...

An interesting stack you have there, I'm going to have to check into that Endeavor series. I know you'll enjoy Mrs. Kimble. I'm currently reading The Kitchen Daughter- about a young woman with Aspergers...

Linda @ A La Carte said...

I love a good stack of books! I have been reading a lot lately and finished a good book by Elin Hildebrand this week. I started one yesterday but don't think it's going to hold my attention so I'll move on. We Sisters do love our books!
hugs,
Linda

Great reads ;)
Enjoy my dear xx

Lorrie said...

Looks like a great stack of reading. I just finished all of the Maisie Dobbs books, except for the very first one which I'm having trouble finding.
Reading is a great way to stay cool on a hot summer day.

I just finished the new Karen White book, A Long Time Gone. I loved it. xo Laura

Susan said...

Love reading, too. Currently reading "Penmarric." It was a book club selection. Usually I am more drawn to non-fiction.

Take care and enjoy the rest of your summer! Susan

Susie said...

I like stories of the English and Irish people. And mysteries. Hope you have a fun weekend. I think I am getting Emma for a couple days. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

Sally said...

I see you love reading as much as I do. However, I haven't read any of those authors. I'll have to check the library here.

I just finished an older one of Stuart Woods; Cold Paradise. I also read Sandra Brown, Deadline and Robyn Carr, The Promise.

Yesterday I picked up Debbie Macomber's, Rose Harbor in Bloom. Now that the yard is finished for today, I'm gonna start that one.

Have a wonderful weekend, Diane.

xoxo

Mrs. Kimble? Would love to hear your thoughts and will check the synopsis in the meantime!
Great banner Diane!

Blackberry Lane said...

Always fun to learn about good reads. Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Shug said...

Girl....you would love my precious little niece. She volunteers at our local library on Sat mornings and she is always bringing books home. She loves to read and read and read.
I struggle because reading makes me so sleepy. For me, it's like taking some kind of sleep pill...

Diane,
Always great to see ideas for new books. Thanks for posting. I picked up what looks like a good one at a garage sale yesterday. "WAR BRIDES". Looks to be about England in World War Two.

Thanks for the reviews...

Ii find that I'm not reading many ' ordinary ' books these days as I am up to my eyes reading for my university studies and that just fills my days ....trying to catch up at the moment before my next assignment. One book that is part of my course is ' Burial at Thebes' (Sophocles' Antigone) by Seamus Heaney. Joan

LindyLou Mac said...

A lady after my own heart with the amount of reading you do! Just published my latest review, which was a great read and very different.

Red Rose Alley said...

Oh, I didn't know you loved reading so much. I love the library, and when I was a kid they had a library trailer that was set up in the neighborhood, and we could all check out books, read them, and return them. It was so fun for us all.

Have a good weekend, Diane, reading away.

love,
~Sheri

Jemma@athomewithjemma said...

Well, I am behind in my reading, I have been babysitting so much this Summer. But, I do have a book that was passed to me by my middle daughter's MIL- Wool-science fiction.
Have a great weekend!

I'm reading Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie.

Sheila said...

The Library is a favourite place of mine as well. I acquired a lot of my friends books when she was cleaning out her personal library a few weeks ago. I have a shelf of wonderful hardcovers for summer reading and will enjoy the variety. I will look for Endeavour. Thanks for the tip.

Sarah said...

Summer reading……..that's how we spend a lot of summer days and evenings here. Just finished The Goldfinch. Have you read it?
I've read some of Maisie Dobbs series, but generally I reach for historical fiction. Will check out Elegy for Eddie. Thanks!

Elizabeth said...

Beautiful blog.

Nice stack of books. ENJOY!!

I read Mrs. Kimble, but none of the other books.

Seventy-Seven Clocks sounds VERY good.

ENJOY all your books and your week. I am going to follow your blog if I can.

Love the mirror too.

I just finished THE MILL RIVER REDEMPTION and LITTLE MERCIES - they both were very good.

I see a Diane Chamberlain book on your table. :) LOVE her books.

I have to try this series. I just checked out "Life after Life" by Kate Atkinson.

Susan Marlene Kinney said...

Hi Laqvendar Dreamer! I wrote down Endeavor and the Maisie Dobbbs Mystery series! Those tweaked my interest big time! Right now I'm reading two GREATS! "Loves Awakening" by Laura Frantz and "Thorn in My Heart" by Liz Curtis Higgs. I Love these historicals! :)
