Suddenly Sunday

Suddenly Sunday is a weekly meme hosted by Muse at Confessions and Ramblings of a Muse in the Fog. You can visit her lovely blog here.

It's been a very long, tiring week around our household, but in a good way. Both of my children are involved in the performing arts (gotta balance out sports activities with a little culture, you know?), and their concerts and plays are happening within a week of each other. I'm running all over town getting them to rehearsals and feeling like I'm not accomplishing very much reading -- seems like this would be a good time to start seriously looking into audio books. I've resisted the concept of e-books and audio downloads, but I'm beginning to see the error of my ways...Do you have a kindle? Are you a fan of audiobooks? I'd love to hear your thoughts.

Looking ahead.....(aren't you ready for the freshness of spring and days of sunshine?)...I have these books on my nightstand, and I'm looking forward to sharing my thoughts with you when they are completed in the next few weeks:

The Sunne in Splendour by Sharon Kay Penman

The Secret Diary of Anne Boleyn by Robin Maxwell

Murder Most Royal by Jean Plaidy

The Masque of the Black Tulip by Lauren Willig

Have a great week!

The Sunne in Splendour was the first book by Penman that I read - it's very good. I hope you enjoy it!!

I like the feel of a book in my hand and the ability to easily flip back/forth if necessary so I really have no interest in a Kindle (or similar object) or reading them on my computer. I'm on the computer enough the way that it is!!

I'm not a fan of audiobooks -- I get distracted, too easily. But, I am a fan of those wonderful days of children's activities. Been there done that and wouldn't trade those memories for anything. Now the grandchildren have started the cycle all over again.

All these books you listed looked great!

I will definitely be looking forward to your review of The Sunne in Splendor! There have been so many wonderful things said about it.

Thanks for participating in Suddenly Sunday :)
