The Bibliophile Files - 7/7/20

Hello and welcome to a twofer since I bailed on posting my monthly reading list, or anything else, for the entire month of June.

A lot of this was accomplished while working at home periodically during lockdown - no phone or customers requiring me to start/stop the audiobook just hours of listening while I got a lot done. I have to tell you, as a periodic treat, working at home ain't so bad!

I have just 5 books left to finish my reading challenge** for the year. I enjoy a good challenge but now I'm looking forward to reading whatever I come across.

     Force of Nature
     Wolf Pack
     The Rising Sea
     Escape Clause
     'O' is for Outlaw
     Out of the Deep I Cry
     The Sentence is Death
     Everland - a different spin on Peter Pan and there are a few more in the series to check out.
     Death Qualified
     On Borrowed Time
     Orange is the New Black - it's surprising how close the tv show was to the book
     Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City
     All We Ever Wanted
     Oona Out of Order - Oona is living her life out of order so not everything makes sense at the time. It's a neat idea for explaining how actions affect the rest of our life no matter how much we try to change them.
     The Escape - this is getting a little weird...by happenstance this is the second book I've read during lockdown that ends up dealing with some kind of virus similar to current real life.

   The 57 Bus

**For my challenge I read 44 books that had a word in the title that started with one of the letters in the following South African city: Tweebuffelsmeteenskootmorsdoodgeskietfontein. I've now started looking for another long-named city for next year (hopefully not a city with so many E's!!) but I'm open for suggestions!

And now it's your turn to share the books you have read in the past 2 months. Anything counts: novel, magazine, quilt pattern or cereal box!

Having a rough day?

Sometimes a new perspective helps!

It might also get you some extra scritches from Momma...
Hint! Hint!
