There's not a whole lot new going on around the Coller house this week. We're all anxiously awaiting the arrival of my mom---just a week from today! I can't wait!!! We haven't see her since March and it's going to be great to be able to hang out for a couple weeks.
I've been reading a lot---it's been so wonderful to just kick back and enjoy some good books!
On my literature blog, Belle's Library, I discussed the subject of madness in Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights and also had my first guest post from my friend, Mozette, who shared her tips on Finding and Caring for a First Edition Book.
I'm enjoying my reading challenges and am now working on Simply Audra Marie's weekly challenges. I'm currently reading, Sweet Dreams at the Goodnight Motel by Curtiss Ann Matlock.
Here are my plans for Simply Audra Marie's Friday "It Begins with SUMMER" challenge:
S---Sweet Dreams at the Good Night Motel
U---Undone (will read in September)
M---Mr. Darcy Broke My Heart (done)
M---Motel of the Mysteries (done) This book also counts for Audra's Not Your Typical Genre challenge)
E---Emma, Mr. Knightley, and Chili Slaw Dogs (done)
R---Recipes for Easy Living (will read in September)
I'm considering reading Beverly Lewis' October Song for Audra's, A Reader Is Born challenge in September. I've still not picked for the Summer Title Waves challenge or the What's In A Name challenge.
Since August 1st, I've finished these books:
French Lessons by Peter Mayle

Mr. Darcy Broke My Heart by Beth Pattillo
