Book(s) purchased this week:

I went to my local Waterstones on my day off and had a browse! I ended up buying “Always the Bridesmaid” by Lindsey Kelk:

"Always the Bridesmaid" by Lindsey Kelk

“Always the Bridesmaid” by Lindsey Kelk

I know it sounds like a trashy romance novel, but I like her “I Heart…” series and I fancied something light hearted for a change!

Other bookish things:

My June Reading Challenge 2015 ended this week, although I didn’t complete it! My progress:

  1. Finish reading at least 2 partly-read books – Unsuccessful!
  2. Read at least 2 unread books (and finish them!) – 2 done!
  3. Re-read at least 1 book which I haven’t already read this year – in the middle of 1!

This is an art installation by the Swedish artist Susanna Hesselberg, called When My Father Died It Was Like a Whole Library Had Burned Down.

My Modern Met’s blog describes it asa library that plunges into an infinite abyss. Visible only from above ground, the intriguing installation is inconspicuously marked and, from a distance, looks as though it’s just a square frame laying on the grass. As viewers approach it, however, they can easily see the stacks of books descending into the earth. Its compact structure is reminiscent of a mining shaft or water well with no apparent bottom.” – http://www.mymodernmet.com/profiles/blogs/susanna-hesselberg-descending-underground-library

Hello!

It’s 1st July, and My June Reading Challenge 2015 officially ended yesterday!

I have to say that I didn’t complete it! These were my aims and the progress I made:

  1. Finish reading at least 2 partly-read books – Unsuccessful
  2. Read at least 2 unread books (and finish them!) – 2 done!
  3. Re-read at least 1 book which I haven’t already read this year – in the middle of 1!

At least, I’m 2 books down from the unread book pile! I’m just going to carry on the books I need to get finished!
