April, 2020 - I think I'm going to shut From My Bookshelf down for a while; maybe for good. I've been putting this together for quite a few years now and it's starting to feel a bit more of a chore. I'll keep my Goodreads connected, but with the state of the world right now, I just want to read without worrying about making sure I post something about it. Who knows - when the world starts to make some semblance of sense again, I may start actively posting here again. Until then, as always, happy reading!

Sunday Salon 19 X 2008
Good morning, fellow Salon members! It's been forever since I joined in on the Salon! Too long, in fact. Unfortunately, this is going to have to be a short post today as I'm finishing up moving into my new place today.
It feels as if my reading has been very sparse lately, but I made up for it when I went to visit my sister in Maine last weekend and read 4 books! It was heaven! I read Agatha Christie's Come, Tell Me How You Live; a collection of "true" ghost stories by Carol Schulte, Ghosts on the Coast of Maine; Neil Gaiman's latest, The Graveyard Book; and finally, Brunonia Barry's The Lace Reader. I had a real treat when I was sightseeing in Salem with my sister, as we ran into Brunonia Barry at the House of the Seven Gables! She is lovely. I'm going to Ann Arbor tomorrow night to see her at a reading, which I'm really looking forward to.
I really don't know what I'm going to read next, as most of my books are in boxes right now, and I'm not sure what is in what box. I may just haveto go buy myself something new to read until I get fully unpacked!
