Hello everyone! I hope that you're all just fine this morning - I certainly am! :) Anyway, I just wanted to give you an update on how I'm doing so far.
I'm finally getting back into a fairly regular reading routine this month, thank goodness for that! Granted, my reading pace isn't completely back to normal yet, but at least I'm reading more than a book a month - lol! I do feel a little bit like I'm in constant catch-up mode, though - :)
I'm actually still working through an amazing backlog of crossword puzzles and sudoku puzzles from the newspaper. So far, I've done approximately 198 sudoku and crossword puzzles from the newspaper, although I have also done some sum-doku puzzles from my puzzle books, too! As a matter of fact, I just received another six-pack of sum-doku puzzles through the afternoon mail on Tuesday, May 9th! So far, as of this morning, I have done approximately 30 sum-doku puzzles in the newest puzzle book that I have started most recently.
I have also been doing a number of jigsaw puzzles as well. After I finished the 500-piece puzzle of the four cats playing on someone's desk in a study somewhere, I immediately started in on the box of ten jigsaw puzzles that I purchased on Friday, April 14th! As of this morning - Tuesday, May 23rd - I've done approximately nine of those ten puzzles! What can I say, I just can't help myself - :)
As regards my own reading, the most recent book that I've read was Back When we Were Grownups: A Novel by Anne Tyler which I finished on Friday, May 19th! I'm going to have to do some rewriting of this review as it is a reread for me from almost seven years ago. The next book on my TBR pile that I started reading on Friday, May 19th was The Shroud Key by Vincent Zandri!
I have to say that this book isn't quite like the typical contemporary mysteries that I usually read. In my opinion, this is a cross between a hard-boiled detective story and an archeological mystery. To be perfectly honest, I'm not that far into the story yet - but I am curious to see how it develops.
