Enjoy. I might have to go out to a park with a good book and read awhile this weekend. It is supposed to get into the high 50's or low 60's this weekend! That is really nice for us now in MN. Have a great weekend!

Ah. I've read all of Gaines except for Mozart and Leadbelly. You just reminded me that I need to run out and get that. Bloodlines is also new to me. Thanks again. As always.

Coucou Stephen,

I dont know that author
Are his books translated in French I wonder ?
I'm sure you had a good time reading this book

You know, Stephen, Time is so short I notice that spring is here And I was in the mountain, there was snow, and in Cergy the weather is so hot now

The landscape is already yellow because of rape
Flowers flowers flowers everywhere and birds so busy

It is difficult for me to choice I have so many pictures to share !!
I would like to show this old beautiful school soon though...

We're probably getting some of your weather here because we are completely unseasonably messed up. :)

I hope you had a great weekend too. My weekend was productive.

Thank you sir. I did. I hope your weekend was great as well.

I know! He deserves it.

I would've but my dog ate it. :)

Yes, I have Mozart and Leadbelly. I need to read that next. I think I'll concentrate on Gaines for a minute.

Didn't finish but I'll let you know. :)

It seems that Gaines would be?? We'll have to check. Yes, I'm looking forward to more photos. You make me want to upgrade my camera. :)

Yes indeed it was. Good to see you.

I did. Enjoy your week as well and thanks for the love. :)

is reading tough for u? meaning to put aside some times daily to flip the pages...I have the bad habit of putting down a book for weeks after then i have to recall the earlier

Stephen A. Bess said...

Yes, I love him.

Most of my reading is done on my way to work. I did some reading this morning over a cup of coffee. I read last night before I fell asleep. So, it's whenever I get a moment. :) So, it's easy for now. I don't know if it'll stay that way. I guess it will depend on my outside responsibility.
