My goodness!

I didn't realize it had been more than two months since I've posted here! Of course, I have been reading, but I must confess it's been mostly Facebook and internet news articles. (Slap my hand, bad me!)

I have started a few books, but haven't gotten very far in any of them.

Mauve: How One Man Invented a Color That Changed the World is a bit more technical than I had expected, but the historical and personal part is interesting to me, so I'll plug on.

Pride and Prejudice (ebook) is on my phone, downloaded to my Kindle app. I have read it before, about 40 years ago or so, and am reading it when I'm stuck in a waiting room or somewhere without a "real" book.

Heart-Stirring Stories of Love compiled by Linda Evans Shepherd, is a collection of inspiring short stories, mostly only a page or two in length. A friend loaned it to me, and I'm reading a story or two almost every day.

The Chilbury Ladies' Choir by Jennifer Ryan is an Advanced Reader's Copy I received through LibraryThing's Early Reviewer's program. It is enjoyable, about a group of ladies in an English village who are determined to continue the church choir after most of the able bodied men of the village have gone to war (World War II). A major obstacle to their efforts is the decision of the church vicar to discontinue the choir for the duration.
