Ramble #10

This week flew by in the blink of an eye! For some reason I’m listening to the ‘Something Rotten’ soundtrack, despite never seeing the musical. It’s kind of catchy. Perfectly upbeat for this sunny day. So, I actually managed to do myself proud, reading 4.5 books this week! The Defense by Steve Cavanagh – ★★★★★…

#10 Dying Breath by Helen Phifer

The woman’s face was pale and waxy. Her milky, partially open eyes stared into the distance.

Kindle TBR

The problem I have with Kindle is that I go crazy with “Kindle Unlimited” “Kindle Prime” and “Kindle 99p Sale”, and end up with a ton of books that I actually never end up reading and it just makes my Kindle library look untidy and chaotic. So, I’ve culled my library. I now have 32…

January Roundup

To kick of 2020 I managed to read 7 books in January and listen to 1 audiobook. I know that this is a low number of books for me, I can usually read around 15 in a month, but I found it kind of hard to get back into the swing of things once Christmas…

The start of the week went by quickly. On Tuesday evening I had interupted sleep. On Wednesday evening I slept every couple of hours. On Thursday evening I might have well stayed away. Oh the drama of insomnia. This week I read one book, discarded another book, listened to an audiobook and created a new…
