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?

Friday is modeling with the library books I am currently reading.

  1. Baggage: Tales from a Fully Packed Life by Alan Cumming is the author’s second memoir. I enjoyed the first and although I am only a few chapters into this one, I like it.
  2. Bomb Shelter: Love, Time and Other Explosives by Mary Laura Philpott is a memoir composed of several essays. It does center around something that happens to her son that changes her world.
  3. Dillie the Deer: A True Story of Love, Healing and Family by Melanie Butera came out in 2014 and I have no idea why it took me so long to read it. It is a very sweet story, and I am only a few chapters in, but it didn’t make me cry which is always a plus.

Penny may be posting tomorrow, if not, Rosie has been taking notes on the family gossip.



  1. I think all are interesting stories. Currently I am reading a short story book ” Love of Rain” by Pritilata Nandi.

  2. We, too, often cry over books! But these days, mama cries almost always over beauty. Starved for normality, I say. And mama is on the next to last Poirot book. Interesting title, the explosive one….

    1. They are. Thanks for visiting. I will pop over to see what you are reading.

  3. Friday is doing a great job showcasing your current reads. A huge Aw.

    1. That sounds like a book my hubby would love. He is big on sci-fi. He likes post-apocalyptic stuff too- not me though. 🙂 I will stick to memoirs and self-help. XO

  7. Hello Friday! Dillie the Deer sounds like a book I would like. I am not reading anything now but blogs. Good to know Rosie is staying up to date on the family gossip… good girl Friday!

  8. Charlee: “Our Dada is reading something called ‘American Elsewhere’ that he says is like H.P. Lovecraft meets Pleasantville.”
    Lulu: “Pleasantville? Sounds like a nice place to live.”
    Charlee: “Yeah in this case not so much, apparently …”
