I am writing this from here:
When I finally finish All Things Wise and Wonderful by James Herriot today, it will be my 11th book of the year. I started the series last January and have continued to make my way through it slowly while reading a few other books. I had a couple of other books I had planned to read during my “birthday month,” which starts June 1. I am turning 50 on June 9 and while in previous years, I had celebrated my birthday for a weekend, then a week, then a month, I think this year at half a century, the month-long celebration is, or at least might be, well deserved. However, I think now that I’m going to continue reading Herriot’s series that ends with The Lord God Made Them All and Every Living Thing, starting this coming long Memorial Day Weekend for me and continuing throughout June and probably July.
Next Sunday, I’ll do my “normal” Pushing Forward Back post to wrap up the end of the month and look ahead to the next month. In addition to continuing through the Herriot series during my birthday month, I also have planned a wine trip with my wife and am going to have a giveaway here on the blog (more details to come on my birthday). Stay tuned. In the meantime, if you missed my last post, visit it here: What We’re Watching Wednesday | The Short Season Shows, Part 1, if you’d like. I’ll leave you with a little chill music from Guido, my chill friend from the Netherlands, what I listened to as I wrote this post:
What about you? Any big plans for the coming weekend for those of you in the States who have off Memorial Day? Any big plans for you regardless of where you are for the summer (or the winter, depending on the hemisphere you’re reading this from)? Any good books included in those plans?
