It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (September 24): 09/24/18

It's Monday! What Are You Reading?
Hosted by Kathryn of Book Date.

We survived the week but I've come down with a cold. I got a lot of reading done, primarily in the form of short things saved on my phone. I also managed to finish the hummingbird painting. I'm thinking of working on an owl next.

In other news, I have been invited back to be a first round reader for middle grade fiction for the CYBILs.

We need to find around seven exceptional books from the nominees. Nominations come in two parts starting October 1st.

The painting is amazing, great work! Ugh, sorry about the cold - I caught something and it took a good two weeks to get over.

Looks like you had a great reading week with lots of good stuff to come, enjoy!

My list!

Thanks, re the painting. It seems that everyone in my circle of friends is sick — even ones out of state. Ugh.

I'm sorry you're sick. I hope you get well soon. I really like your hummingbird painting. I have a friend who paints birds, oysters, and hens on Bible pages and newspaper ones as well.

Pussreboots

Oysters, that's an interesting subject. I don't think I've ever painted an oyster. I do have a hen photo that I'm planning to turn into a painting soon. Right now, though, I'm working on a burrowing owl.
