Welcome to my Sunday/Monday post. I'll be linking up to:
Stacking the Shelves
It's Monday, What Are You Reading
It's been a few weeks since I've done this. That's because two weeks ago Saturday, I left for an Alaskan Cruise, and one week ago, I was just getting back. I had a good time. I'd been on an Alaskan cruise before six years ago (that same week, in fact), but it was nice to be back and get to do other things. I went rafting near the Mendenhall Glacier and I went zip lining and on the railway out of Skagway. Glacier Bay was clouded over but still very impressive. I also got to spend some time playing tourist in Seattle, which I hadn't done for years. Pikes Market and Space Needle were what my friend and I hit.
The downside is, I came back with an extra souvenir - Covid. I started to feel sick last Sunday, my first full day at home. I tested negative Monday, but tested again Wednesday and tested positive. I've been lucky. It's mostly been a cold with a mild fever. Having to keep well hydrated, but it could have been so much worse.
Since I'm still working from home, I was able to keep working as well, which has been good. After all, we are at month end again.

Hang on, I've got quite the haul to talk about. Well, maybe, it isn't as bad as it could be since it's been a few weeks. Right before I went on vacation, I snagged a Kindle deal on the Music City Murders
boxed set of books 1-6 in this series by Steven Womack. Not sure if they will be my thing, but for the price (free), I couldn't pass them up. Then, I got my eARC of Murder of a Mail-Order Bride
by Mimi Granger, which I've now read since I'm reviewing it this coming Thursday. It was a lot of fun.
While on my cruise, I was reading the first of Sue Henry's Alaskan Mysteries. I stopped at a book store while I was there, and they had a copy of the second book, Termination Dust, so I bought it. I figure that's a great souvenir to have, right?
Since I've been back, I have snagged a couple of good deals on Kindle copies of books I've been eyeing, Murder at the Lakeside Library by Holly Danvers and A Curious Beginning by Deanna Rayburn, so I couldn't pass them up on sale.
Five books over three weeks. Okay, 10 if you want to count that boxed set as six books, which it is, so you should. But I was liking it better when we counted this as five books.
What I'm Currently Reading:
Saturday, I finished off A Dish to Die For by Lucy Burdette. This is the latest in the Key West Food Critic Mysteries. It's always fun to revisit the characters and find out exactly what is going on with them. That means Sunday, I'll be diving in Murder on Trinity Place by Victoria Thompson. I'm so close to catching up on this series since this is book 22 out of 25, but I've still got enough to take me into next year at the rate I'm going.
Hope you have a great week.
