A library haul after months | Notes from my Reading

Despite so much going on over here between work, house projects, yard work, and just daily living challenges in this pandemic era, I've been able to squeeze in time to read as well, which I'm thankful for, because the news has been abysmal these past few weeks for various reasons and I'm continually worrying about where humanity is headed, even more so than I did before.

A library haul after months...My biggest highlight in books this past week was that the library opened for holds pickup.

Catchy Cover #2



Honolulu by  Alan Brennert

What do you think of the cover?

I haven't heard about this book yet, but definitely like the hardcover cover best

I have only seen the Hardcover/Green one. I like that and the paperback. Everyone's reviews sound like this a great read, it was $15 on Kindle though, I would prefer to pay $25 for a hardcover than that price on kindle. A definite read for this year though.

hcmurdoch, I'm with you on that!

Diane, I just got Moloka'i for Christmas last year, so I can't wait to dig into it!

MarceJ, I agree, might as well buy a hardcover, if the kindle edition costs so much!
