Monday Is Usually All About Books...

So...I am all over the place with books...kind of reading three at a time and they no longer have to be in different genres! I am soooooo excited about that! I can pick up a book...read it...put it back down...then watch a little TV...pick up my shiny new Oasis...read that book for a while...then pick up another book! I used to think my sister in law was so wrong because this is the way she reads. But now I love this random reading! I am still a stickler for choosing the right books and finishing every book I start but I am proclaiming myself a Random Reader! Yahoo! Actually I am now a three at a time random reader!

I am reading this...when Roxie lets me. I love this one...Collin meets Nina. Collin draws on black chalkboards and doesn't care if his beautiful work gets erased. Nina is a new teacher who grades her student papers in Collin's restaurant but her father owns this virtual game...Everwhen...that everyone wants to play. I am at the part where Nina wants Collin to meet her father...that's all I know other than the game plays a huge role in this book...I think!

Reading this on my Oasis...it's a yummy sort of modern day cozy English mystery that starts off with a murder that doesn't look like a murder...yet. It's a comfy book and I am really into the characters. Some authors just do character descriptions so well and this author is one of them.

Plus I am reading this one, too...but I really only just started it...that's Den's homemade lemonade...it's so good in the afternoon.

Today felt like a regular normal day! I yearn for those! Treadmill and weights after Den's special berries and granola and yoghurt bowl for breakfast. Organic nitrate free hot dogs for lunch...yum! A little bit of food prep...I made a Dijon Balsamic Salad Dressing for our dinner salads. There was a post somewhere about recipes for 9 kind of ordinary salad dressings...one was called Catalina...which I only remember as a Kraft or French's childhood fave. Was it red? Making that tomorrow.

Now we are showered and relaxed...reading and watching TV. The only sad thing is that I am craving peanut butter cookies! These were in the NYT today.

I want one badly!

So...that's my Monday...I am off to randomly choose a book and read.

Hugs,

Patty

  1. I've heard great things about Magpie Murders. The Breakdown is good in a twisted kind of way.

  4. I really wanted to pick up another book in the genre of the one I'm in the middle of - but I didn't. I'm afraid of confusing the characters with the book, you know? So, I admire that you can do this!!!!

    1. For some odd reason I never get the characters mixed up.

  5. I loved The Breakdown...and now I'm curious about The Chalk Artist.

    I am reading two books at a time these days, but they have to be different genres. I'm not random enough...LOL.

    One of mine is nonfiction (Fairy Tale Interrupted) and the other is a mystery (You'll Never Know, Dear).

    That lemonade looks so good!

    Thanks for sharing.

    Is the Oasis your Kindle? How is it different from the Paperwhite?

    1. Yes...the Oasis is the newest version of a Kindle. I never thought the difference would be that great until I started using my Oasis when my Kindle broke. It's the print...and the way it formats things...it's just so much better!
