March-April Tub o' Books
Since I have,
I can post the Tub o’ Books, don’t you think?!
To me, a travel day that turns rainy is like a piece of chocolate I’ve dropped on the floor: It’s significantly less appealing, but I’ll be damned if I’m going to throw it away.
Seth Kugel, Rediscovering Travel
I also read Sunshine and Oranges; and Dark, Sacred Night, Michael Connelly.
I “read” these audiobooks, too.
Lee Child’s, The Midnight Line
and John Sanford, Twisted Prey.
I had bagfuls of books from two different library systems, so I’ll not list them all. Some were returned without much read, some put on my wish list, some still on the shelf.
There is one book I discovered by accident, however, that I would love to have for myself. It’s an Emily Carr memoir of a trip she took with her sister early last century. Emily Carr is a favorite of mine, a Canadian artist and writer. Her journals and memoirs of journeys and her time in nature are exquisite reads.
Books on my wish list.

Lastly, as I write this, our spring day is reaching 80! and I’m with Hammie on that:
I always like to credit any photos or artwork not mine, but am unable to credit the cat on the red chair at the top. It was an already-framed piece and there is no indication of the artist. If it’s yours, please do let me know.
