* comment and TELL me what you have acquired for your shelves recently

Thanks for stopping by :-)


  1. Nice book haul. I'm glad you're having some good weather

  2. Going on a long train trip is one of my goals. I think it would be fun. I hope you're having a great week!

  3. I have been using Parmesan in my cooking lately. Yum.
    I do enjoy a long train trip. Nice book haul for you. Happy Reading!

  4. We were hoping to ride the train to Chicago next week, but it had too many stops. Reading on the train sounds ideal.

    And Murder in Old looks fantastic.

  5. How fun to read that one on the train! I bet San Francisco is lovely this time of year.
