On the Reading front
Korede is a young nurse in Lagos, Nigeria who is hiding a secret – her sister is a serial killer. Braithwaite’s stunning novela “My Sister the Serial Killer” follows Korede as her need to protect her younger sister from harm struggles with her own desire to get something she desperately wants. I was left wondering who was the biggest monster. Definitely a book whose memories will last.
Will, Halt, and Horace are off on another adventure in the kingdom of Clonmel. This time, they battle mob mentality and the wiles of a cult leader. A good continuation of the Ranger’s Apprentice series.
Over the 4th of July weekend, M10 and D12 spent the weekend with their mom and grandparents in WI. They wanted to surprise their grandparents with new hair color. IL2, Aaron and I were supposed to go camping at Lake Itasca – headwaters to the Mississippi – but Aaron had been sick for several days leading up to it, and still had a fever the day before we were slated to go, so I released the reservation. It was very disappointing. I had a readathon instead, though. Finished 2 books.
The rest of the week was uneventful. Lots of appointments, as usual. M10 is slowly gaining the weight the doctor wanted, he’s up 0.5lbs this week.
A group of people and I are starting out an accountability group (for productivity) where we play D&D and the hit roll is determined by how productive our day was. Aaron is DMing, but he still has a fever and is unable to start the campaign.
Today (Thursday), IL3 has his medical speech therapy intake and an occupational therapy assessment by the school district. He already qualifies for cognitive and speech assistance through the district, though I suspect his cognitive portion is simply his refusal to do what is asked on demand rather than a cognitive issue. The district probably won’t start assistance until the school year. He is also to be assessed for autism in November.
Q: How many books do you buy in a month?

How many books I buy depends on how much I can afford and how many there are that catch my eye. Usually, I buy ebooks through Bookbub, so they aren’t very expensive and they don’t take up much space!
I’ve never even tried Bookbub. What is it exactly?
The number of books I buy depends on many book sales I go to in a month.
Yeah, mine varies a lot, too.
I don’t really buy that many books because I don’t have much more space for any physical books. I do have space on my kindle but still don’t buy many unless it is something that I really want.
Libraries are great.
What interesting books! Love the pictures too.
Thanks! Yes, the Serial Killer one was quite good.
Fun hair colors!
I rarely buy books these days. I prefer to make good use of my library for both physical books and ebooks. I’m at a stage of life where I want less stuff — that seems to apply to digital stuff as much as physical stuff.
I totally agree! Less is more!
