Up Next:

I wrote last week that I was going to focus primarily on my Hawaii book so I could get some planning done. That happened but in a more roundabout way than I expected. On Monday, I remembered that Banned Books Week is coming up soon so I ran out to the library and grabbed a stack of shorter (primarily children’s) books and got started on my reading. I’ll continue with that stack this week. I also need to look for another audiobook but I don’t know when I’ll get around to that. I have a lot on my plate at the moment.

What are you reading this week?

I have an affiliate relationship with Malaprop’s, my local independent bookstore located in beautiful downtown Asheville, NC; and Better World Books. I will receive a small commission at no cost to you if you purchase books through links on my site. My opinions are completely my own.
