Weekly Update at Introverted Reader

Welcome to my weekly update for August 17, 2015!

I haven’t gotten too much reading done this week, but we are busy enjoying the summer weather. I have a bit of trivia for my Walking Dead friends: Norman Reedus was in the area today. At least one of my Facebook friends was lucky enough to have her picture taken with him. How cool is that?

Yesterday my dad and I went to a “Beginner Outdoor Photography” class. I found a wildlife education center that’s sponsored by the state and provides different classes like this for free. I signed us up for this class as part of his Father’s Day present. We learned a lot and had a good time doing it! My husband and I disagree about which of these is my best shot from the class. What do you think?



Undaunted Courage: Meriwether Lewis, Thomas Jefferson, and the Opening of the American West by Stephen E. Ambrose–Book Review

The Supremes at Earl’s All-You-Can-Eat by Edward Kelsey Moore, read by Adenrele Ojo and Pamela D’Pella–Book Review


Seriously Mum, What’s An Alpaca? by Alan Parks

Locke & Key: Head Games by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez

Currently Reading:

Shantaram by Gregory David Roberts

Armada by Ernest Cline, read by Wil Wheaton

Summer Knight by Jim Butcher, read by James Marsters–On hold for now. It was my turn to download Armada through the library and there are already something like 25 people behind me. I had to jump on it.

Up Next:

Rome, 1960: The Olympics that Changed the World by David Maraniss just came in to the library for me as well. I’ll be stopping by to pick it up tomorrow.

What are you reading this week?

  1. Wow that class sounds awesome!!! Both photos are really well done, but I love the second one. Very moody.

    Also Norman Reedus!!! Eek! I would love to meet him. I am jealous. Lol.

  2. I love the pictures. I read like mad last week and I am struggling to do more than 100 pages a day this week.

  3. They are both awesome, but I love the second one best…the dew feels alive.

    Thanks for sharing and for visiting my blog. Enjoy your books!

  4. I like both the pics but love the second one just like Greg above, so that's two votes for that one. Enjoy the summer weather so you have great memories of it when winter hits!

  5. The summer weather has been nice here, although the last two days have been hot and muggy. Can't believe how fast August is going. Your photography class sounds cool- both pics are nice, although if I had to pick i might go with the water drops.

I love to hear from you! Please contact me (menu bar, above) if you're having trouble commenting.
