"All the best stories in the world are but one story in reality -- the story of escape. It is the only thing which interests us all and at all times, how to escape."

It's Monday!! What Are You Reading??



This great meme is hosted by Sheila at

It's a great way to start the week and
find out what other bloggers are reading.
My To-Be-Read pile has grown to an
unbelievable number thanks to this meme.

Last week was truly unique.
I chose books to read based on their font print and read 2 books with a magnifying glass assist.  I am improving every day and am actually seeing much better, the font on my computer screen is almost set to normal and hopefully I will retire the magnifying glass soon too.

The cozies all look great. They are on my wishlist. I loved Executive Lunch. I'm looking forward to your review.

So glad your eyes are improving. In Malice, Quite Close caught my eye, I'll have to look it up on Goodreads. Your cozy covers always make me smile.
Have a great week and happy reading :)

The Heresy paperback I'm reading right now makes me think I need a magnifying glass too - the print is SO SMALL! It's the first time I've regretted having a book in print instead of on my Kindle!
