The Arrival by Shaun Tan

Currently Reading:
The Betrayal of the Blood Lily by Lauren Willig

The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie by Alan Bradley, read by Jayne Entwistle

The Richest Man in Babylon by George S. Clason (A co-worker insisted I read this. I'm not really interested but I didn't know how to say no. At least it's very short.)

The Innocents Abroad by Mark Twain--I think I'll bump this up to my daytime book after I finish Blood Lily. Maybe my before-bed sense of humor is just not in the right place to enjoy this. If that doesn't work, this is going on the DNF list.

Up Next:
Between Blood Lily and Innocents, I've probably got next week covered. If I do happen to finish both, I'll move on to Blankets by Craig Thompson

Update:
Thank you for all the well-wishes for my cousin last week. I understand the surgery went well. He is having more lab work done today to see how things stand now.

  9. Glad the surgery went well. Keeping my fingers crossed for your cousin.

    Love the eclectic range of books you have read and are planning to read. Shame that the Mark Twain isn't standing up to his usual humour.
