A couple of Audible Daily Deals
Matriarch: Queen Mary and the House of Windsor - Anne Edwards,Corrie James
Misbehaving: The Making of Behavioral Economics - Richard H. Thaler,L.J. Ganser

While the deals are daily, it is rare that they offer anything that would tempt me to plunk down the ready, so it is nice to be able to find two in such a short period of time. My TBR --or should that be TBH -- pile is growing and I am looking for ward to days and days and days of listening pleasure.

Today's Daily Deal
Consider the Fork: A History of How We Cook and Eat - Bee Wilson,Alison Larkin

I'm not even sure why I bought it exactly but it got good reviews, so I took the plunge. My 2018 pile of new reads is developing nicely.

Buddy Read Book Acquired!
Life: An Unauthorised Biography: A Natural History of the First Four Thousand Million Years of Life on Earth - Richard Fortey

The temperature's finally dropped to a more reasonable level after the rain, so I walked over to the library to pick up my copy of the book for my rogue Flat Book Society buddy read with Elentarri. I don't think we have a tag, unless we want to use "rogue buddy read" or "rogue flat book" or something like that, but you're welcome to follow along. I've been requested to provide updates. To be honest, my spirits fell a little bit when I first laid eyes on it at the library because it looks like a brick.

 

I'm planning to start this weekend, but I may start a bit early if I finish my current Bingo read (The Lamp of the Wicked) before Friday. Otherwise I might have to actually choose what to read next, and I'm terrible at decisions. I'd probably end up watching TV instead. I have the fourth season of Orphan Black to get through.

I love shopping the sale pile. I found a bunch there that I already owned and three more to add to my library. This will keep me going for a while, don't you think.
