It’s Monday! What are You Reading?


It’s time once again for Kathryn’s weekly meme, “It’s Monday! What are You Reading?”, hosted at Book Date, where we share what we’re reading and have read over the past week.


What I Read Last Week

I read 8 books – 5 romances, an historical romance, a non-fiction, and a picture book.

Seemed to be a need for romance last week. We got bad news about the kidney transplant my husband needs if he is to get off dialysis. He already has a donor – his sister. But, because he had the bowel removed and he was classed as category 2, he must wait 2 years and have 2 clear colonoscopies. This is actually Ministry of Ontario guidelines to doctors. On top of that, he has a nodule in his thyroid and there is another infection in his stomach wound. Back to the hospital. There are 3 things – NO MORE please!
