The Week in Books: April 11 – April 17

A busy week at work – but it was only a four day week, so that was a delight. I did a lot of household-y stuff on Friday – the sort of stuff I used to do on my days off during the week when I used to work a 4 day week – and then did some family visiting on Saturday and Sunday. The weather has been lovely and it’s been a delight. And it was Him Indoor’s birthday too, so some celebrations may have been had as well. So on the reading front, lots of rereads, and a couple of new things. A good week all in all.

As mentioned, I was doing very well on the book front until a trip to The Works. But what can you do – lets call it an Easter Treat to myself.

Bonus photo: A misty morning on the train to work – the daybreak experience on the commute is one of those things that only really happens for a few weeks – most of the year it’s either light the whole time or dark almost of the way and I miss the sunrise because when it happens I’ve already made it into London 


An * next to a book title indicates that it came from NetGalley. ** indicates it was an advance copy from a source other than NetGalley
