Maybe you've noticed, I haven't been reading as many books lately. Busy with gardening and transitions in my aquariums and other stuff. What reading I am doing is mostly dipping in and out of magazines- hobby related- so there's that.

I have a happy book moment to tell, though. A month or two ago I wanted to read a book off my TBR shelf about a woman who studied sharks. She was mentioned in this other shark book I'd read. I distinctly remembered getting it at a library sale, and what it looked like. Couldn't find it anywhere on my shelves or the stack on the floor (not organized, but it's not huge, either). Baffled, I searched two or three times. I even looked on my swap shelf downstairs, just in case. And checked my swap site lists online- thinking maybe I'd tried it, given up, put it out for swap and forgotten about it. Nope. I checked my library catalog- still listed as being in my collection, unread.

Finally gave up looking for it.

I just happened to find it today by accident, at the bottom of my backpack (which I don't use very often). I must have stuck it in there as an alternative read for a trip, never opened the book, and forgot it was there when I unpacked later. I'm so glad it's not actually lost or given away! Laughed out loud to hold it in my hands again. Now let's see if it's any good.


  1. In case you're not reading blogs as much either, I read two books I think you'd love, both by the same author.


    The Wolf's Boy and Wind Rider, both by Susan Williams/Susan Williams Beckhorn (she got married between the two books).

  2. Thanks for the note! Actually, I just started catching up on some blog reading earlier today and you're right in guessing what would catch my eye- I put those two on my TBR list thanks to your reviews.

  3. Yay for finding the book! I bet it will be great. Meanwhile after making a resolution at the start of this year to read down my TBR shelf substantially, I have increased it by approximately 50 books HA HA I DO NOT HAVE A PROBLEM. (I have a problem.)

  4. Been there, done that! Maybe not in that exact way, but you know what I mean.

  5. Jenny- Oh how I love that problem. Yes, it is mine too.

    Bermudaonion- I knew I hadn't really gotten rid of it!

  6. Yay for finding the book!
