The Monday Book Report, Edition #16



I am linking up with 











WHAT DID I READ LAST WEEK: 
 I finished reading "Match Making for Beginners"  4.25 stars - Review coming later this week! 





LAST WEEK ON THE BLOG: 
*Book Review of The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek 
*Back to the Classics Challenge
*Happy Homemaker Monday 

WHAT BOOKS DID I BUY/BORROW THIS WEEK:  
All borrowed from Kindle Unlimited: 
- Winter World by A.G. Riddle 
- Darkness Falls by A. E. Faulkner
- Hopeless by Colleen Hoover
- The Perfect Mother by Caroline Mitchell

WHAT I'M READING RIGHT NOW: 
A.G. Riddle's Winter World 
And for the Classics Challenge: 

Tess of the D'urbyvilles 



WHAT ARE MY READING PLANS FOR THE UPCOMING WEEK: After Winter World I plan to begin "The Ten Thousand Doors of January" for the MMD book club.  I meant to read it last week - but other books just won out! 

BOOKSTORE I WANT TO VISIT: I'm visiting my best friend (and the office of my work-at-home job) in April.  I'll be in Portsmouth NH.  Sheafe Street Books is located in the area and looks like a great place!  I'll definitely be stopping by. It sounds PERFECT!  

From a review on Trip Advisor:  "Cozy and crammed with books, this rambling collection of fact and fiction is compact, but broadly and smartly sampled. Stewarded by a well-rounded, friendly lit-lover and a fluffy feline (and some canaries), the shelves are whimsically classified and relaxed to reward the casual browser. Situated in a 200-year-old home in Portsmouth's fantastical historic district, there's a single sagging armchair piled with pillows, which may be the best dock in this renowned port town from which to embark on a tangent or two."



READTHONS & READ ALONGS FOR THE UPCOMING WEEK:  

There is still a week left in the Black Lit Challenge!



Also - a challenge which I plan to participate in to mark off another book in my Classics Challenge, the One Hundred Years of Solitude Read Along, hosted by Silvia Cachia



MY BOOK MINISTRY: I'll be dropping 4 great books into the Little Free Library this week.  I will share pictures in next week's Monday Book Report"!

    1. I will check out your review! Match Making is on Kindle Unlimited - and they show it on their main page a lot! I'm still only about 10% into Tess - but I already love her character!

    I always enjoy visiting small bookstores. I hope you'll share some photos when you return home.

I am linking up with  Sandra for Happy Homemaker Monday!  I haven't blogged much in 2020.  In fact, I haven't done much of anything ...
