Late June and Early July Bookshelf

Hello, fellow Bibliomaniacs! You know who you are! Your worst public vice is hoarding books. Also, when you vacation in the summer, you make excuses to visit libraries every town/city you go through - just to inhale that marvelous "Library Books in Summer" fragrance. And for the reallllllllllly hard core bibliophiles, we have been known to hang around used book shops, as well as various St. Vincent de Paul thrift shops/Goodwill - just to peruse and fondle (*gasp!*) the books.

Soooo... what's on *your* bookshelves this late June and early July? Here is a brief list of my fiction/reads like fiction picks for myself from the Wisconsin Public Library Consortium Digital Library. P'rhaps I'll check back later with some more books from my very own Kindle shelf.

*ahem*

***
To Say Nothing of the Dog by Connie Willis
English Tea Murder by Leslie Meier

The Story of Rose: A Man and His Dog by Jon Katz

The Island of Heavenly Daze by Lori Copeland and Angela Hunt

4:50 From Paddington by Agatha Christie (a Miss Marple whodunnit)

At Bertram's Hotel by Agatha Christie (another Miss Marple)

Courting Trouble by Deeanne Gist

David Copperfield by Charles Dickens, narrated by Simon Vance

Brideshead Revisited by Evelyn Waugh, abridged, narrated by Jeremy Northam

and last but certainly not least:

Summer Lightning by P.G. Wodehouse, narrated by Martin Jarvis .

Anglophilia reigns here at the castle of Miss Chris in recent days. Once again, I have been indulging in serious laughter as I re-watch John Cleese, Prunella Scales, Connie Booth, and Andrew Sachs in the BBC comedy cult classic Fawlty Towers, circa 1975.

And that's all out of me until later. I have house to clean while I have a little energy. Have been on Planet Migraine a good deal lately. Va bene. God brings good out of my little excursions there if I will choose to cooperate gracefully.

Much love to one and all in Jesus. I am praying for all of the visitors past, present, and still to come - to my old blog and this newer/being refurbished one.
