It’s been a quietly busy and somewhat stressful work week for both Mr. Bookwyrm and me, both on the work front—a looming deadline for me—and personally. (Don’t worry; we’re both fine, and so is Robin. A member of the extended family had an unexpected, potentially serious, but probably treatable health event.)
This afternoon, my play-reading group is reading The Mousetrap, a play by Agatha Christie. I directed it back when I was teaching high school drama, so this should be fun, and a good break from work.

What I’m Reading/Watching
Reading: I finished up Danger at the Cove (Hannah Dennison; ARC) and read The Ex Hex (ARC), the first in a fun and witchy romance series by Erin Sterling (aka Rachel Hawkins.) I also reread Justice Hall, the next book in my ongoing reread of Laurie R. King’s series starring Mary Russell and Sherlock Holmes. For Justice Hall, I alternated between reading my Kindle copy, and listening to the audiobook whilst doing chores. But time for either reading or listening has been in short supply this week, due to that looming deadline I mentioned earlier.
Watching: We haven’t had much time for watching TV this week, either. We caught up on a few Stephen Colbert episodes from a couple of weeks ago, and watched a few documentaries about great train rides (for the scenery. It’s vicarious travel!)
