Happy Tuesday!Well the dog days of summer are really upon us now! For our family, that means waking early to walk the dog and water the garden. It's also time to hibernate during the afternoon. I tend to do hand sewing because my attic sewing room gets pretty hot. Most of all, I like to read. Here's what is on my reading summer list:
The Premonition by Michael Lewis: I finished this a few weeks ago. I had expected to be political but it isn't. It's more about medical experts and what they saw and studied during the pandemic. It sounds boring, right? Nope, I couldn't put the book down! I really got invested in the characters and was sad to see the book end.
Born a Crime, Stories from a South African Childhood by Trevor Noah: My father did work in South Africa years before the word "apartheid" was well known in this country. He was appalled by some of the things he witnessed. I haven't started this book yet but it looks it will be insightful!
Betsy recommended this book. Set after World War 1, all I needed to read was the phrase "surplus women" and I had to order the book!
I found this book on the must read summer lists of an online publication. My understanding is that HBO is making a film about it. I read the preview of the book and got sucked into the story right away. It's about a woman detective in Botswana. The book was delivered last night and I already read 4 chapters!
Many of you wanted the Modernistic Flower Quilt pattern and I was happy to send it on to you. Can't wait to see if any of you put one together.
What will you be reading this summer?
Have a safe and happy day!
