It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (February 04): 02/04/19
The rain is back and will be around for most of next week. It's nice to not have to water. Fortunately we aren't expecting any flooding. Other parts of California aren't as lucky.
I've made some progress on the Davis farm painting. But it's going slowly. Mostly I need to stare at it and think how to attack it next.
In the meantime, I'm about half way finished with my sketchbook. I should be finished with it in about two weeks.
Below is a painting of turkeysaurus-Rex. No, it's not a real thing, just a what if. What if the T-Rex were even more like a turkey than it actually was.
Reading this week was pretty calm until today when I realized I had a bunch of library books due. So I spent my rainy day reading. Nearly half the books I read this week were ones I finished today.

It has in deed. I just got a new longer lens to hopefully take some better moon photos.

I always love seeing your paintings. You are so talented.

Great scenes! Enjoy your books and just enough rain to keep away the drought.
Thanks for visiting my blog.

Would you believe the rain even turned into snow in our local hills? I'll post pictures this coming Monday.

Lovely assortment of books. I liked White Rabbit. Come see my week here. Happy reading!
Comment #8: Tuesday, February 05, 2019 at 20:14:00
I ended up DNFing White Rabbit. I'll post a review in the future.

Buried in Books looks good. I like your paintings, very nice.
Comment #10: Tuesday, February 05, 2019 at 20:18:00
I hope so. The last one was very good.
Comment #11: Monday, February, 4, 2019 at 13:10:17
I love a good rainy day. But not flooding. Glad that is missing you!
The Remarkable Journey of Coyote Sunrise looks good. Is that part of your project?
And exciting about your sketchbook! Thanks for the tip about it, btw. My husband is pretty pressed for time, so that was good to know. :)

Yesterday was the most rain I've seen here in a long time. Then it turned cold and our local hills actually got snow.
The Remarkable Journey of Coyote Sunrise is very good and is part of my project. I'll be reviewing it this Saturday. I also read it because I'm friends with the author's agent.
I'm working on the sketchbook for about an hour each weekday. I"m nearly finished and will easily make the deadline. But it als takes planning which is how I spent my first two weeks with it. In the future, I'll plan the book before I get the book now that I know a blank one has 32 pages.

>Haha turkeysaurus-Rex is kinda terrifying!
Comment #14: Tuesday, February 05, 2019 at 20:18:00
Thank you. He was a fun challenge to paint.

Can’t wait to hear your thoughts on Coyote and Lou! I’m hoping to squeeze in Dragon Pearl by Yoon Ha Lee this spring. It’s frustrating to see that none of the Maple Harbour Adventures books are available at my local libraries. Grrr! I kinda want to read book #3 just for that cover art! I so enjoyed your turkeysaurus-Rex - lol! My youngest daughter is cuh-RAZY about dinosaurs, especially the t-rex. Have a wonderful reading week, Sarah!

I'll be reviewing Coyote this Saturday. Lou I'll get reviewed later. I have a backlog of multicultural books to review. Right now I'll say that I liked it quite a bit. I rated it four stars.
SOS at Night is only available as an ebook. The previous two are also published in paperback. The entire series is worth purchases and the titles are affordable.
Tell your youngest that I was crazy about dinosaurs as a kid too. Send her to this page: Your holiday dinosaur; it's hosted by U.C. Berkeley.

Turkeysaurus Rex :)
Ooh a Tintin book! I always love seeing those. Have you read any of them before?
Comment #18: Tuesday, February 05, 2019 at 20:44:00
Yes. You can see the others I've reviewed on my series page.
Comment #19: Monday, February 04, 2019 at 22:42:32
I have Binti and Belleweather on my “maybe” TBR list. Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
Comment #20: Tuesday, February 05, 2019 at 20:48:00
I have the second Binti book checked out from the library. Take that as my recommendation to definitely read the first one. I haven't gotten far enough in Belleweather to have an opinion on that one.
