Weekend reads and almost unpacked...

I'm not so unpacked I feel like I can share apartment shots yet (at least, not wide views) but I've posted a few heavily filtered closeups on my Instagram.  But once the boxes are out, I plan to share a shot of the bookshelves -- we went from five bookshelves, double stacked, to just two!!  And even then, there are few enough books I can stage stuff all artsy-like, as if from a magazine!

I'm still figuring out my new commute but have happily gotten back into reading (whew!).  (But I still need to catch up on my backlog of reviews!)

This weekend, I'm reading Janice Law's Moon Over Tangier, the third novel featuring 20th century painter Francis Bacon. (I uh-dore these books; see my reviews for Fires of London and The Prisoner of the Riviera.) Of course, I'm facing boxes and the inevitable post-move clean up, but it's worth it: our new place is cute and free of hateful landlords!

What are you reading this weekend?


  1. It has to be a relief to have a lot of the unpacking done!

  2. Glad to hear your unpacking is moving along! Not to sound like a broken record, but I am still unearthing boxes from June -- and edging ever-closer to getting our bookcases put back up. I can't wait to see my books again!

    This weekend I'm still working through Jean Kwok's Mambo In Chinatown and just started a Sarah Dessen audio -- What Happened To Goodbye -- for my commute. Nice, easy listening.

  3. I can't wait to see your bookshelves! I hope you have a great weekend!

  4. Yay for unpacking and settling in. I could just about live out of boxes as long as my books were surrounding me.

    I'm wading through about five books right now, with no particular stand out just yet.

  5. Any way you look at it moving is hard, hard, hard. You sound like you are coping pretty well - hope you are feeling OK. No heavy lifting.

  6. Glad to hear you're getting settled in and setting up your bookcases. I just moved in the spring and it took a long time to get back to normal around here. Enjoy your reading this week.

  7. Great! It's good to see an end to the packing and unpacking! Love the artsy arrangement with Moby Dick!

  8. You have made great progress! Wow; Have a great rest of the weekend.
