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.
Surprisingly, the pace of my reading has picked up appreciably. As of Saturday, August 26th - I have finished a total of five books and two sum-doku puzzle books. Granted, I still haven’t found the book that I was looking for originally, but Mareena has managed to locate at least two books that she thinks that I will enjoy reading. One book is actually a reread for me from just over four years ago, and the other has been on my TBR pile for almost six years.
I have the distinct impression that the book that I’ve been looking for will actually take ages for me to find. Mareena told me that she was certain that it was on the bookshelf just outside my bedroom door, but when she looked for it at the same time that she found the other two books, it wasn’t there. Oh well, I’ll keep searching.
I just found out that 'The Exorcist' will be starting its second season on Friday, September 29th at 9:00 P. M. I'm delighted to see that the show was renewed and want to know where it goes from here. As far as I know, the two main characters are now traveling exorcists and will be dealing with a case somewhere in Seattle, Washington.
I'm immersing myself in sum-doku and sudoku puzzles as well: at the beginning of the month - on Wednesday, August 2nd - I'm happy to say that I finished one puzzle book that I have had in my collection for just over a decade. I have also just finished another puzzle book about eight days ago. I immediately started another sum-doku puzzle on Friday, August 18th. As of today - Monday, August 28th - I’ve finished a total of 22 puzzles.
As regards my own reading, the most recent book that I've read was Brother, I’m Dying by Edwidge Danticat, which I finished on Saturday, August 26th. I immediately started reading The Girl on the Train: A Novel by Paula Hawkins on the same day! According to Goodreads - as of Monday, August 28th - I've read 65 pages out of 323 or 20 percent of the story.
