It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading?

Hi everyone! We are joining Comedy Plus’ Awww….Mondays and Book Date’s It’s Monday What are YOU Reading?

Sammy is posing with one of the books I am currently reading. The Comfort Book by Matt Haig. It is an easy read filled with quotes and anecdotes to make the reader feel good. There are two pages of “It’s okay” , I especially like,

“It’s okay to be the teacup with a chip in it. That’s the one with the story.”

If you are looking for some words of comfort and hope right now then I highly recommend this.

I think I need a new nickname for Typhoid Mary. Her mother, my niece told me she said Auntie calls me Typhoid Mary. My niece just said, that’s good.  Then my niece asked her how her ice cream was and she replied, “good, its so Typhoid Mary.”  🙂

She is only 3 so she is too young to explain about Typhoid Mary.

Looks like Rosie will be here tomorrow. And Wednesday we have a review of a great water fountain.


  1. Sounds like a good, soothing book. Funny about Typhoid Mary; I can’t imagine what name might replace it though . . . XO

  2. MAMA LOVES THAT BOOK YOU ARE READING – Teacup, indeed. So sweet. She is going to tell her 12-year-old shy, very-teen-ager grandchild that she is that teacup, when she is full of self-doubt and thinking she is not like others. WONDERFUL. As for books, mama reads about a gazillion a year and the best one she has read this year is Apples Never Fall by Liane Moriarty. Spectacular plot, just amazing. Mama cried at its beauty. Please mention more titles you like. She is on number 28 of Camilleri’s wonderful Sicilian books.

    1. It would be a nice gift for her grandchild. I will have to check out Apples Never Fail. XO

  3. Hmm….you may be right about your niece needing a new nickname! These days people don’t want to hear anyone even mention something like typhoid (tee hee). I love the quote about the chipped teacup – I’ve been one of those for 74 years now and have never minded having the chips (!!).

    Hugs, Pam

    1. Thank you. 🙂 Her mother doesn’t mind, she knows she sneezes all over the place.XO

  4. Yup. They grow up and take notice what’s going on around them that concerns them, more and more with each passing day. The learning times iare here– with wings on its back!

    1. No fight. He had a bump on his nose that I had biopsied almost 2 years ago and sometimes he still scratches it.

  5. I’m currently reading False Witness by Karin Slaughter. Very good book.

    Typhoid Mary is being misused. Just saying, but you’re right a three year old won’t understand the meaning right now.

    Thank you for joining the Awww Mondays Blog Hop.

  7. Charlee: “Our Dada is reading something called ‘The Great Alta Saga’ by Jane Yolen. It’s like a thousand pages long.”
    Chaplin: “A thousand pages?! It would’ve taken Dennis a long time to shred that many pages!”
    Charlee: “No it wouldn’t have.”
    Chaplin: “Yeah, no, you’re right, it wouldn’t have.”

  9. The Human says that book sounds good! Right now she’s reading (well actually listening to an audio book) by Eric Metaxis about Dietrich Bonhoeffer. She says’ it’s good but we felines aren’t big readers, we purrfur the klitty You Tube channel!
    Purrs & Head Bonks,

  10. I’ve read two books by Matt Haig: The Midnight Library and How to Stop Time; both were excellent!
    The story of ‘Typhoid Mary’ is interesting and sad…the original one, I mean.
