Not much to report this week. As predicted, I found myself ordering a few books from The Book Depository this week but I'll mention those when they arrive.
Otherwise, I'm still reading Black Rain by Masuji Ibuse. It's going rather slowly, a combination of being too tired at night to read more than a handful of pages, and the subject matter being heavy and not one to rush through. It's very readable, don't get me wrong, but hardly a happy story. I did spend a little time this afternoon reading it and I'm making progress but I'm also starting to eye the other books on my 'hope to read soon' pile. So I may pick up something else to take a break from reading about the aftermath of the bombing of Hiroshima for a little while. I'm wavering between a mystery or something for the Once Upon a Time Challenge. As I write that I think I'm leaning more toward escaping into something a bit fantastical for a while. I think I need a break from reality.
This weekend has also been rather uneventful. The weather hasn't been very nice so we just stayed home and I've been doing some housekeeping. Both the real kind and the computer kind. You may or may not have noticed that I've changed my banner again. H complained that the previous one was a bit on the large size plus it felt like time for something new again. Let me know what you think. On that note, I think it's time for me to go choose a book and get ready for bed. Happy reading!
