It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

A weekly event hosted by Sheila from Book Journey to discuss your reading week ~ the books you've read and those you plan on reading in the coming week. I love this meme, it helps me stay on track ... well, most of the time. Thanks Sheila!

Well not quite the frenzy of reading I was hoping for last week but I finished two books. We had family visiting for 2 nights, storm insurance work finally nearing completion and on Saturday we had a lovely trip to The Two Old Ladies Tea Shop in Pomona to celebrate a friend's fabulous 50th with a High Tea.
