The weather has been cool and not humid this week, which is unusual for this time of the summer. My husband and I have been backyard camping all week. It’s not quite like camping for real, but we love the convenience of having access to our kitchen (and bathroom) and we don’t have to leave our cats home alone or board them.
I’m not a big fan of fireworks — I’m generally bored after five minutes — but we decided to go to them last night. They were supposed to start at dusk and there was limited parking, so we thought we would be smart and park at the Walmart across the highway from where they were holding the fireworks. When we got there at 8:00, there were at least 150 cars already there. I guess we weren’t the only ones who thought up that plan. Dusk came and went. I was glad I had my Kindle because it wasn’t until 9:45 that they started. And…they were over by 10:05. I pulled out my Kindle again (we were near parking lot lights) and we waited about half an hour more until the traffic had died out before leaving.
Books I Acquired:
Purchased & Free
Barnes & Noble sent me a coupon this week so I went to buy On the Fence by Kasie West. They didn’t have it, but they did have next week’s releases. I almost bought Through to You by Lauren Barnholdt but ended up with The List instead. There were several others I wanted (including Sinner) but they were hardcover and I only buy paperbacks (and ebooks).
I always research books on Goodreads before requesting them, but I somehow missed that Pink & Green is the third book in a series. Fortunately it’s not out until October so I will have time to read the first two.
Currently Reading: How We Deal with Gravity by Ginger Scott
