Summer weekends have so much promise and I’m ready to dive into this one. One of my planned events is to hit my new favorite bookstore, Commonplace Books, with my daughter. She got a gift card for her high school graduation and is dying to spend it! If you’re in the Oklahoma City area, I highly recommend visiting this charming bookish place. I find that bookstores have personalities and each one has a mood it evokes. Commonplace is like the Malibu of bookstores. Laid back. Cool without trying. Muted in a nice way.
This week felt like an onslaught of new books to add to my TBR. Between my podcast episodes loading me down and some great blog posts, my list grew by about 20. Now, to actually get them read. There were a couple I heard about repeatedly. I will certainly be adding Midnight at the Bright Ideas Bookstore by Matthew Sullivan. I love books about bookstores!
Here’s what I was reading this week:
