The vegetable garden is planted and my chiropractor is several hundred dollars richer. Between rain days and other commitments, I’d let the beds go a little too long this year. The weeds were tenacious, the soil still on the heavy side, and my back and hips didn’t appreciate it. Needless to say, by the end of each day, I was ready for a hot bath, a cold drink and a good book. In fact, there were moments with the sweat rolling down my forehead that all I could think about was the book waiting for me inside. It was a good reminder of the simple joy a book can bring.
Here’s what I’m reading these days:
On the Kindle: The Misremembered Man by Christina McKenna
At the Gym: Unraveling Isobel by Eileen Cook
Beside the Bed: The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion
