I have to apologize—This is the longest I’ve ever gone between issues of Sonderbooks. I’m still behind on writing reviews—I have a stack of books I’ve read but haven’t reviewed yet. Once again, I thought I’d better post the reviews I do have, and try to catch up later.
moving in August, so
the next couple of posts may be farther apart still, as life gets very
with the multitude of details to be looked into. I’m
frantically trying to read all the
library books I have checked out before we move! It's an
impossible task, so I'm trying to focus on only the best.

Quotation of the Month“Most problems could be diminished by the drinking of tea
and the thinking through of things that could be done while tea was being drunk.
And even if that did not solve problems,
at least it could put them off for a little while,
which we sometimes needed to do,
we really did.”
—Alexander McCall Smith, in Blue Shoes and Happiness
