It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (February 25): 02/25/19

It's Monday! What Are You Reading?
Hosted by Kathryn of Book Date.

Last week was the Super Snow Moon. My street runs east and west but it's on a hill, making moonrise hard to photograph. So if I want to get good moon photos, I have to wait until moonset. For the full moon that means getting up at dawn. But wow, what a gorgeous moonset it was!

On Thursday I finished the sketchbook. This week I'll mail it back to the museum. Once it's been digitized and I have the link, I'll share that on a future post.

  • Brave by Svetlana Chmakova; personal collection
  • Here and Now and Then by Mike Chen; personal collection

What I'm reading:

  • The Cat of the Baskervilles by Vicki Delany; personal collection
  • Ghostbusters: Crossing Over by Erik Burnham and Dan Schoening (Illustrations); personal collection

Not bad for not being able to leave the yard/car :)

Thanks. Last Friday I was able to take a brief walk at one of our local regional parks. Now we're back to another week of rain.

The moon was gorgeous. I was driving home in the right direction and enjoyed it all the way home.

The moon was gorgeous. I hope I do enjoy my books. I just finished the Ghostbusters one and had fun reading it.

>We have had a lot of rain too. I'm ready for some dry and sunny spring days. You are so talented. I wish I could take pictures like you do. Hope you enjoyed your books this past week.

We're having more rain this week. I'm actually enjoying it, but the wildflowers will be nice too.

I couldn't get decent photos of the super moon. Yours came out way better. It was interesting to see and hung very low.

Congratulations on finishing the sketchbook.

So many of your books are right up my alley. I look forward to hearing your thoughts on them.

The new lens and lots of practice helped get those moon photos. Thanks re the sketchbook. I mailed it back yesterday. Now I'm waiting to hear that it's been digitized. I'll get this week's books reviewed as quickly as I can.

Love the moon pic! And ooh Paradox Bound. I read one of Clines' books and it was pretty good!

Paradox Bound is a fun book. The Clines book was good too.

Wow that is a great shot! That moon was something else, just brilliant in the sky.

The moon was gorgeous. I'm happy there was a break in the weather to be clear enough to see it.

Tempting books, and lovely moon. Thanks for sharing, and for visiting my blog.

>Great assortment of books! I did get a couple of glimpses of the Super Snow Moon. Pretty impressive! Come see my week here. Happy reading!

I spent about half an hour watching the moonset. Thanks for stopping by.

I always learn something new on your blog. I had never heard of a Super Snow Moon! That's a great pic you took.

Every month's full moon has a name. I don't know all of them. The super just means the moon is at its closest point in its orbit. Then if it's a blood moon, like in January, that's a lunar eclipse. I still have tons to learn but it's fun.

Curious to hear your thoughts on On the Come Up. Is it as good as The Hate U Give?



Comment #22: Tuesday, February 26, 2019 at 21:45:00

Pussreboots

I haven't cracked it open yet. But I will get it reviewed the Saturday after I finish it. Probably in the middle of March.

I'm so curious to see what you think of the new book from Angie Thomas. I have never read a second book from a first-time-author-I-loved that I liked (if that makes sense).

What lovely art you make!

I'm looking forward to reading On the Come Up. I want to finish The Cat of the Baskervilles first.
