Just 168 hours.
Brought the sun and the flowers.
Where there used to be rain.
Okay, technically, I haven’t seen any flowers and not only was it rain, but also snow last week, but this morning, I am seeing sunshine and to mix musical metaphors, it’s not in a bag, but the future is coming on.
Last week after declaring myself a monogamous reader, I was geared up to read The Likeness by Tana French, but then I hit a speed bump and the karma train hit me again. Now I’m getting my reading mojo back on the road again as I’ve decided to tackle the Harry Potter series. I already had read Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone a few years ago, but then for some reason, I never got to the rest of them. With the last part of the series coming to the big screen, I’ve been thinking about reading the entire series and then watching all of the movies leading up to the last one.
This past week kismet intervened as the library where I work received the entire series in hardcover as a donation from a patron. Yes, of course, we already had the series, but it’s nice to have second copies of so popular a series, especially when the original copies get so worn, even with covers put on them. So I saw the series sitting on a table in the library, and suddenly I knew what my next reads would be.
Yesterday I began with the first one, since it has been a few years since I read it and I’m finding it as delightful as I did then. I should finish with it this morning and be on to the second one by nightfall…actually by mid-afternoon, if I don’t get sidetracked by a nap or Netflix, which is oft to happen on Sunday afternoons, especially a nap.
So whatchya reading today? On tap for this week, the rest of this month?
