Look at you with your labels!!
I am re-reading The Mists of Avalon, just started Tracy Chevalier's "The Lady and the Unicorn," and I'm looking for a hat pattern for some pretty purple wool, because it is COOOLLLDD here. At least dogs are warm company.

I'm reading Jason Boyett's "Pocket Guide to The Bible" and "Pocket Guide to The Apocalypse" and then I'm going back to my Daily Bible while still in Genesis with my new Bible Dictionary and Commentary by Wycliffe.

AND....(cue background chorus of angels) I had a NAP today!!!! A real nap where I actually slept with BOTH eyes closed for TWO hours with my cat Cally!! For the first time in years! It was divine.

I like all the Tracy Chevalier's books. One I read, the other two on audio.
I'm sorry it's cold there. Glad you have warm dogs. We are rather chilly here, too, so the cats are good lapsitters.

A nap? For two hours with a cat? Oh how wonderful!

I may have labels but I couldn't get the books to be in a stack of lines no matter how I tried.

I noticed your labels too.

I am reading Ian McEwan's Saturday and just finished Carson McCuller's The Heart is a Lonely Hunter.
Getting ready to read Lizzie's War by Tim Farrington.

Thirst is amazing.
I've given it to a couple of thirsty people.

Holy Coincidence, Batman!

At the Reconnecting with Faith retreat this past weekend, the minister in the group did a reading from Thirst.

I'm having a hard time reading lately. It's not just the time factor, though that is significant. I'm finding it hard to concentrate. Also, since I like reading, I think guilt may be playing a part. Somewhere back in the deep recesses of my psyche, I think if I am reading I'm being lazy and self-indulgent.
