Fifty Books

I just finished reading my 50th book for this year.  At this rate I may hit 75 by the end of the year.  Last year I got to 69 books. You can see my list of books read on the left sidebar.

I have been making my way through Louise Penny's series on Chief Inspector Gamache.  If you like well written mysteries I highly recommend this series.  The first one is "Still Life" which I read last year.  Because the public library didn't have the next one I went out of order reading them.  My library here at Vantage House has them all so now I'm reading them in order having just finished the 9th in the series.  Today I checked out the 10th!  Besides being intriguing mysteries taking place in Quebec, the author must have a passion for food because her descriptions of the food being served and eaten makes me so hungry.  If I take a trip to Quebec I will make sure to sample the food.

Sorry for the quality of these photos.  I walked around the lake and came up with the idea for this post.  My only camera handy was on my phone.

It's wonderful having a large library on the first floor of my home.

There are newspapers each day and lots of magazines too.

Lots of comfy chairs to sit and read, even a fireplace.

The nearest public library is a short walk away but it has been closed for renovations all summer.  I look forward to that re opening.

Life is good.  I think I'll go start a new book.
