#BookRec - The Book Of Summer



Up first for my #SheReads #summerreads is The Book Of Summer by @mgablewriter:

Living on the coast of NJ where we experience (too) many storms year after year, especially more recently the Nor'Easter of '08 and Hurricanes Irene & Sandy, which were way too close for comfort (saying the very least) the struggle to maintain generations old ways of life, and now watching them vanish is a very real & relate-able subject for me. Always love a Nantucket setting for a Summer read! (I actually enjoy it when the finicky coastal weather is captured just so, because it's like that here where I live!) Wanted a little more of Cliff House itself and Bess because of how much I enjoyed them.

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Thanks again to @stmartinspress for this beautiful copy! 

A more traditional review coming here soon (having internet issues today). @shereadsbookclub

Another New Normal



This evening's #nofilter #sunset from my walk 🙌🏻 64* again with little humidity and gorgeous! I've started PT and as part of it I'm taking the short walk to the end of our road & back, with a gradual incline one way. (This was the first). Let the road to recovery begin!

Monday Musings



'Julia Child' 💛 First bud of the season opened (finally!) today 🎉 I've been puttering around since I awoke this morning: cleaning up the mess Saturday morning's early storms left throughout #tinyyard (nothing like being woken up by a tornado warning 😳), making fresh lemonade (hey when you've got lemons 🍋) and fresh ice decaf coffee, plus that potato salad I told Big I was going to make yesterday 😬😁 Windows & doors open wide, it's beautiful! Some days you just need to putter...

When Friday Reads & Friday Favorites Collide!



For this #fridayreads and #fridayfavorites, I'm sharing something a little different! I'm sharing with you John Grisham's new podcast, Book Tour With John Grisham, because I listened to the first episode earlier today and loved it! I hope you will too. The first episode features him and author Jodi Picoult talking book stores, and writing. I listened via iTunes, but it's also available on Google Play, and wherever podcasts are available.
