It's Monday! What Are You Reading? - May 25

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. It's a great post to organize yourself. It's an opportunity to visit and comment, and er... add to that ever growing TBR pile! So welcome in everyone. This meme started with J Kaye's Blog and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date.

Happy Memorial Day, everyone. I hope you have some plans for rest and relaxation. This Memorial Day is special for us because so many local remembrances are also including the 89 veterans lost at the Soldiers' Home in Holyoke--including my father-in-law. It is also our son's birthday, so we are having him over for supper.

In my reading world, I'm on the final few chapters of this one.

I need to sneak this one in next.

Then this one.

That's it for me. I'm doing my best not to request new books for review. That only makes catching up harder. 

How do you stay on top of your TBR pile? Are you caught up on book reviews or are you a bit behind?

Must be hard thinking about all those soldiers being downed by the virus. Hope you enjoyed the birthday. Happy reading.

Remembrances are sad, except that there are also good memories that go along with the sad ones.

Enjoy your books.

Hi Kathryn, it has been tough. I was speaking with the daughter of one of my father-in-law's friends last night. There was a group of eight men that ate dinner together each night. Five of them are now gone. It will be a different place once this is all over.

Laurel, you are so right. There is so much about my father-in-law that I wish I knew. There are so many things I wish could have said. But, there are also many memories to cherish.

Thanks for visiting.

I hope you enjoyed your birthday celebration with your son.
I’m always a bit behind lately, I’m hoping to be caught up by the end of the month though.

Wishing you a great reading week
