stats, The pile, week in books

The Week In Books: June 23 – June 29

Acutally a good week in the end – I’m not as tired as I was last week, but that’s because I’ve had a fair few days off and that means less commuting.  And a wedding at the weekend meant I didn’t have the traditional weekend sofa reading time either, so not bad considering all that!

Deadlocked by Charlaine Harris

Loitering with Intent by Muriel Spark

No Nest for the Wicket by Donna Andrews

Real Murders by Charlaine Harris

Still reading:

Titus Groan by Mervyn Peake

A trip to Milton Keynes mid-week led to six book purchases for me (although a couple were books that I’ve already read on Kindle that I wanted hard copies of) and some picture books for some little cousins we went to visit. Add to that a book on the Kindle, an impulse purchase in Sainsburys and the next Meg Langslow and the to-read pile is multiplying again…

This week’s other excitement was getting pre-approved on Net Galley for Part One of the Harriet Evans book mentioned above.  I’m still quite new to Net Galley (and it’s not as if I need further encouragement to add more books to the pile!) and it’s the first time I’ve been pre-approved for something. It’s the simple things isn’t it.  I’ll let you all know what I think of the first installment as soon as I’m finished reading it.
