I can’t believe it’s already the 6th day of April. I’m really not sure what happened to the first 5 but here we are. North Dakota is in the midst of the Spring Melt which means that we are currently on flood watch. The Red River of the North is within walking distance of my house so there is some cause for concern but according to the latest predictions our house is not in danger this year. Nevertheless, my flood insurance is fully paid up.

I’ve been thinking recently that my writing doesn’t really communicate all that I want to say and I want to do something about that. One of the bloggers I follow is the writer Sammi Cox and every weekend she publishes a Weekend Writing Prompt. So I think I’m going to start taking her up on this challenge. This week’s prompt is Silence and I might actually have some thoughts on that topic. I’ll post whatever I come up with here and you guys can let me know what you think. Any tips for improvement would be appreciated.

I think it’s been a while since I did a numbers update so I thought I would do that now. My TBR is currently at 197. I started the year with 194. I could have sworn I wasn’t acquiring very many books. According to Goodreads, I’ve read 21 books already this year but I must confess that most of that reading has actually been listening. I am pleased with the status of my Goodreads challenge though. My best reading discovery this year has been the Audible Daily Deal. I’ve had the chance to try out new authors authors and genres without laying out a lot of cash. I’m also pleased that my NetGalley rating has reached 87%.

Coming up this week I will be posting reviews of “The Forbidden Door” by Dean KoontzThe Forbidden Door and “Burial Rites” by Hannah Kent.Burial Rites  I am currently listening to “The Waiting Room” by Emily BleekerThe Waiting Room and I am reading “A Murderous Malady” by Christine Trent. A Murderous Malady

So that’s where things are at here. I hope you all are having a great weekend and I will talk to you again soon.

Happy Reading!
