What Helen Read #40: August 2019

As you read this I am on my way to the North Shore for a road trip. I can't wait to check out and hike around Lake Superior again. I love that lake so much and when I visited a couple of years ago, I couldn't wait to get back. It's such a majestic lake.

And of course, this month Helen had another great reading month. I don't think there's ever a month where Helen doesn't have a great reading month. Many books that she has loved as well.

Here's what Helen read for the last month.

What Deanna Read #43: August 2019

Hello! Hello! I'm crazy busy right now. We leave for the US to visit family for a month on Monday (the day this post goes live) and I'm trying to get ahead. I still have to pack and give Steve and haircut and then tomorrow we are heading into the city to celebrate Father's Day with my family. Where does all the time go? I didn't even want to get out of bed this morning.

Here's what I read for the month.

Manview: Untouchable (Cutler, Sutter, and Salinas #3) by Jayne Ann Krentz

Welcome to another Manview. It's been ages since we've had a Manview and Steve has kindly read a couple of books to give us a few. Hopefully, he will find the time to write the other ones since he's getting pretty busy with work again. I'm delighted for this one.

For those of you who are new to Manviews, these are reviews of romance novels specifically from a man's perspective, the reader today is my very own Steve. You can find previous Manviews here.

What Helen Read #39: July 2019

This month as I am preparing this post, I'm also preparing for a romance authors and readers BBQ at my house. We have about thirty people coming and I'm really looking forward to the day. It's going to be great. This is the second one I've hosted. The last one was two years ago and I would have done one last year but I was overseas for most of the year. I'd invite you if you lived in the area.

What Deanna Read #42: July 2019

Greetings! Can you believe we are well and truly into the second half of the year now? Whoosh! There went 2019!!

I'm happy to report my eyes are healing nicely. I've reverted back to an almost normal sized font. Things are still a little blurry but it's manageable. There were times when things were so blurry and I couldn't even see to read a phone number that I was ready to cry from frustration. Can't tell you the number of times I had to ask Steve to read something for me because I couldn't see. But yay! My distance vision is near perfect and it's just my close vision that needs some adjustment.

From a reading perspective, I think I did pretty well. My Kindle has a Reading Insights feature and I am trying to keep my reading streak up. I'm making an effort to read daily and even on days when I'm busy and don't have much time to read, I try to squeeze in five minutes just to maintain my reading streak. Do you read on a Kindle? What do your reading insights look like?
