August Reflections 2018

We lose ourselves in books, we find ourselves there too.

My reading in August was both pleasure and solace. The silence left after my Mom’s passing in July was deafening, but I know she would be pleased that I am filling our daily phone conversation time with books!  It’s easy to stop everything you are doing when the phone rings and allow yourself an hour of talking about all sorts of things (especially books). So now I allow myself that daily time to read, and it is pure pleasure!

Here are the books I read in August. My favorite was The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, but I also loved listening to the very creative Ready Player One.  I had set aside The Silkworm  for awhile and then decided to finish it for the upcoming RIP-XIII reading challenge.  (I started the challenge a week early because I have no self-control!)

August was an enjoyable reading month.

    I’m so glad you enjoyed Ready Player One and The Guernsey book. Two of my all-time favorites! I’ve had Kindred on my list for YEARS. I think Andi (Estella’s Revenge) talked/raved about it a long time ago, but I haven’t made time to read it. Yet.

    Can you believe it’s almost September?? This summer flew by so quickly. I hope you are doing well. We’ll have to plan another lunch date after Rod & I return from our road trip!
