Wishing all a frightfully good time!
What did I read last week?
The Secret Chord by Geraldine Brooks: Done! My review is here.
The Travelling Bag by Susan Hill: A small book, containing four ghost stories. I really enjoyed two of them, and the other two left me a bit puzzled. Overall, though, a very fun read, especially right before Halloween.

I finished Moby Dick! Check out my thoughts on the book and the reading experience via app, here.

A few library hold requests came in yesterday — three at once, of course.
What will I be reading during the coming week?
Currently in my hands:
Harmony by Carolyn Parkhurst: I’m just getting started. I loved The Dogs of Babel by this author, so I’m excited to be reading her newest.
Now playing via audiobook:
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J. K. Rowling: Getting closer to the end. These audiobooks are so much fun!
With my book group (2 chapters per week of each):
- Written in My Own Heart’s Blood by Diana Gabaldon
- A Farewell To Arms by Ernest Hemingway
So many books, so little time…
