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!

Read:

The Liar’s Daughter by Laurie Graham

Deadlocked by Charlaine Harris

Loitering with Intent by Muriel Spark

No Nest for the Wicket by Donna Andrews

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.
