Welcome to my weekly update for July 27, 2015! It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey. She’s taking a bit of personal leave so I’m also linking to Kimberly at Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

Yesterday was my husband’s birthday. We didn’t go out of town this time but we did have a long weekend at home. We started Friday morning with doughnuts at a local place we haven’t tried before; watched the local minor league baseball team on Friday night and enjoyed fireworks afterward; started Saturday morning with a big group of friends at The Color Run followed up with cupcakes and pizza, in that order, with the same group of friends; took a nap because The Color Run starts awfully early; went to the Biltmore Estate to enjoy some music; and finished up with his celebratory birthday steak. Whew! We took it easy today.

That should last me for a while. Shantaram is a 936-page brick! I was in the mood for some graphic novels though, so I have requested Locke & Key: Head Games by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez and Fables: Storybook Love by Bill Willingham from the library. They should be available soon.

What are you reading this week?
