Let’s see how I did…
TO READ CYBILS NOMINEES AS A FIRST ROUND PANELIST I read the following:
Hello Earth! Poems to Our Planet by Joyce Sidman
Ninos by Maria Jose Ferrada
Reckless, Glorious Girl by Ellen Hagen
TO READ BOOKS CHECKED OUT FROM THE LIBRARY Since all those books listed above were from the library, I did ok in this category too.
TO MAKE A DENT IN MY TBR SHELF Here I did quite well, I read:
Anne Lamott’s Some Assembly Required This is a book I ordered online because one day I hope to have read all of Lamott’s books.
I finished Molly’s Song This is a historical novel from my Kindle.
I finished Doctorow’s Doctorow: Collected Stories Here I discovered the master of short stories and an author I had heard of but had never read. It did not disappoint.
I began an Oprah’s Book Club selection, Fall on Your Knees by Ann-Marie Mac Donald which was donated to my LFL.
I read three chapters in the book I was most looking forward to reading, Jamisin’s The City We Became. It is wonderful!
So long, 2021 Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon until April when another for 2022 will occur.
I leave you with a photo of my mottled pumpkin. When I planted some of my succulents in the top of this grey-green pumpkin, copying something I’d seen in a magazine, how was I to know if you watered it, it would cause whitish water blisters on the pumpkin? What a mess! I need to take care of this today.
