It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (August 14): 08/14/17
We did it. It was a crazy week of running errands but the house is on the market. Our first open house was Sunday.
This coming week we're leaving on a road trip to Wyoming to see the eclipse. At this point I don't know if I will be participating next Monday. If I don't, I'll post an extra long one the following week.

The staging looks fabulous! I never thought about putting snacks out!
Comment #2: Monday, August 14, 2017 at 11:23:00
I never thought about snacks either. They were a surprise to me.
Comment #3: Monday, August 14, 2017 at 01:41:31
Oh your house is GORGEOUS. I hope it is sold soon.
Anyway, enjoy your books. When Dimple Met Rishi sounds great. The reviews so far has been awesome. I hope you'll love it. Happy reading and have a wonderful week. :)
Comment #4: Monday, August 14, 2017 at 11:25:00
Thanks. I hope so too. I've just started Dimple but I like it so far.
Comment #5: Monday, August 14, 2017 at 03:36:09
Good luck selling the house! Looks nice. And enjoy your trip- sounds great!
I remember seeing Ripped from the Pages a while back- I like a cozy now and then and the plot of that one appealed to me a lot. Hope it's good.
Comment #6: Monday, August 14, 2017 at 11:28:00
We're all looking forward to the trip. This summer has been so jam packed with moving stuff and work. We need a time away from it all.
Ripped from the Pages is good but it's midway through the Bibliophile series. You might want to start with Homicide in Hardcover

The house looks good - hope your open house goes well!
Comment #8: Monday, August 14, 2017 at 11:33:00
Thanks. I think it went well. Our realtor seemed happy with the turnout.
Comment #9: Monday, August, 14, 2017 at 03:51:04
The house looks gorgeous, hope some serious buyers come through, what a busy reading week too.
Comment #10: Monday, August 14, 2017 at 11:36:00
We'll hear all about the offers this coming Sunday.
Comment #11: Monday, August 14, 2017 at 07:34:14
Lovely staging! You sure got a lot of reading done.
Comment #12: Monday, August 14, 2017 at 11:39:00
This week's going to be a slow week for me with the trip. I never get much reading done while traveling.
Comment #13: Monday, August 14, 2017 at 10:40:51
The staged rooms look great! Good luck!
I like the look of Ripped from the Pages. Thanks for sharing, and for visiting my blog.
Comment #14: Monday, August 14, 2017 at 11:41:00
Ripped from the Pages is book nine in the Bibliophile mystery series. I'll get it reviewed later this year.
Comment #15: Monday, August 14, 2017 at 11:50:43
Paper Girls sounds interesting- I love the cover!
Comment #16: Monday, August 14, 2017 at 12:00:00
I recommend starting with the first volume. There's a huge cliff hanger at the end.
Comment #17: Monday, August 14, 2017 at 18:51:37
Best of luck selling your place. It looks really nice. Hope you enjoy your trip.
Comment #18: Tuesday, August 15, 2017 at 10:56:00
Thank you. The trip will be a nice break from an entire spring and summer working on this first step of the process.
Comment #19: Monday, August 14, 2017 at 21:46:33
The staging looks wonderful, best of success on the sale. Enjoy the trip to see the eclipse.
Comment #20: Tuesday, August 15, 2017 at 10:59:00
Thanks! I hope to have photos of the eclipse to share the week after next.
Comment #21: Tuesday, August 15, 2017 at 06:17:17
The staging is awesome and you're going to see the eclipse....also awesome! I need some to clean my house, remodel it and then stage it! LOL!
Do you read a lot of YA books? I read some...I trend to like them better than some of the adult books. LOL! Have a great experience at the eclipse!
Comment #22: Tuesday, August 15, 2017 at 11:01:00
It's been about six months of thinking about nothing but the old place. It's nice ot have that part of the process behind us.
The eclipse will mean a lot of driving and early mornings but it will be worth it.
I read a mixture of children's, middle grade, YA, and adult books. Most of the books I read fall more into the middle grade category than YA, especially this time of the year when I'm trying to gear up for the CYBILs.

The last time we sold a house (the only time!) we sold it ourselves. A couple bought it without even seeing what it looked like on the inside! It's been a long, long time since then...not sure we could do the same now!
Here's mine: Can Books Improve Your Happiness?
Comment #24: Tuesday, August 15, 2017 at 11:06:00
There is no way we would want to sell our house ourselves.
Comment #25: Tuesday, August 15, 2017 at 08:35:02
Have a great Wyoming trip and protect your eyes!
Comment #26: Tuesday, August 15, 2017 at 11:08:00
We have eclipse glasses (bought last year before all the fake ones started flooding the market). We will also be getting a second set as part of our tickets for parking our car at the Casper Events Center. My camera has a filter too.
Comment #27: Tuesday, August 15, 2017 at 12:14:23
The house looks great, hope all goes well with the open house and it sells quickly. Have fun watching the eclipse! I really want to read Paper Girls at some point, it looks really good - plus it's from the guy who writes Saga, so I'm sure I'll love it.
Comment #28: Tuesday, August 15, 2017 at 11:10:00
I haven't read Saga. I jumped to Paper Girls first.
Comment #29: Tuesday, August 15, 2017 at 12:24:22
WOW! Your master bedroom looks fantastic; I love it! We should have a pretty good view of the eclipse here, but I'm still searching for some decent glasses - GAH! Hope you have a great trip!
Comment #30: Tuesday, August 15, 2017 at 11:12:00
We bought our glasses six months ago when they were still easy to get. Good luck!
Comment #31: Tuesday, August 15, 2017 at 20:47:51
The pictures of your house looks great. Good luck with selling it.
Comment #32: Friday, August 25, 2017 at 21:50:00
Thanks. I hope to have good news to share this coming Monday.
Comment #33: Wednesday, August 16, 2017 at 00:04:41
Your staging looks great - good luck! Enjoy your trip :)
Comment #34: Friday, August 25, 2017 at 21:52:00
Thank you! We just got back from our trip and had a fantastic time. I'll be sharing photos of our adventure this coming Monday.
