I got back last week from my road trip around Ireland and Northern Ireland and am now getting back to my beautiful books. Surprisingly, I did not read AT ALL on vacation. That is so unlike me, but I really wanted to embrace the sights on this trip and got to spend quality time with my husband that does not get to happen too often. I did, however, visit some amazing bookstores in Ireland. Here are just some of my bookstore purchases:

I’m also trying to catch up on some reading by participating in the Bout of Books Readathon that started on Monday. Anyone else participating?

I spent much of the last week watching my niece and nephew, who kept me too busy and exhausted to being able to read much. I don’t know how you mothers out there find time or energy to read.

I’m about to head out in two days on my final summer vacation trip of the year. Ireland & Northern Ireland here I come! (This should explain my choice to read Frank Delaney’s Ireland.) In preparation for the trip, I have plenty of Kindle books downloaded and managed to decide on one physical book I will take with me and leave behind when I am finished. Normally I find that accommodations tend to have a little library I can donate to. Plus, who am I kidding, I will definitely be visiting bookstores while I am there and will most likely buy at least one more book. I’m packing an extra bag in case I get carried away.

I’m about to finish my month of reading Bill Bryson and will be moving on to reading Rainbow Rowell soon (Focus on Authors Challenge). I’m switching from some nonfiction to YA, so it should be a different reading experience for sure.

“There is not a liberal America and a conservative America. There is the United States of America. There is not a black America and a white America, a latina America, an asian America. There’s the United States of America.”

I’ve been a bit MIA the last few weeks. I had a busy time at work and then got to go on vacation to visit my folks in my hometown of Milwaukee. This was a busy vacation, so I didn’t get to read too much, but since I am playing catch-up, it looks like I read a lot. I’m back on track with reading for book clubs and starting my Bill Bryson’s reads for my monthly reading challenge (A Focus on Authors Reading Challenge). I hope to read lots this weekend for the 24in48 Readathon. Anyone else participating?

I’ve been starting some Agatha Christie reads for my Focus on Authors Challenge. I absolutely love her books. She is one of my favorite authors and so prolific. This is definitely the perfect way to begin the summer.

I’ve spent the last week trying to complete some books for readalongs and an IRL book club that I just attended. However, I am very much looking forward to diving into some Agatha Christie books, as she is my June Focus on Authors selection. I’ve been an Agatha Christie fan, since I was a kid.
