It's Monday! Back from Bali 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!

Thanks to Karen for the exciting reviews while we were away and to all the lovelies who visited my blog and facebook while we were soaking up the Bali sun and Indonesian culture. Indonesian food is one of my faves and it's mind-blowing cheap. I loved the 1/2 day local cooking class we did, will do a post on the weekend about that amazing experience.

  1. I have seen The morning hours come along on quite a few blogs, and the cover looks very beautiful, I am getting more and more interested in this book.
    And it looks like you had a lovely time in Bali, absolutely wonderful.
    Have a great week & kind regards,
