  1. I haven’t heard any of the books you listed here, and some of their titles alone sound fascinating. I’ll be sure to check them out now! Hope November is treating you well!


    1. Well Cilla, November has not exactly been a bed of roses here in the USA. But life continues and I’m grateful for small mercies — and for books.


  2. You’ve been steadily reading through the Betty McDonald oeuvre for sure! I hadn’t realized there was more beyond Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle, whom I still sometime think of when washing dishes or (less frequently) making my bed.
