So home he came. He completely threw off the dog's life for a couple of days but now everyone has settled and we're enjoying his lively antics.

I have a good collection of these Penguin green crime books but I was able to find 10 I didn't have. All first published and I'm quite happy with that.
Penguin Poets: John Donne, Thomas Hardy
Robert Graves and the Penguin Book of Comic
and Curious Verse. Beautiful covers.
Twenty five books later I continue to add to the collection. A couple I have already but several were as new because she bought them and always thought she'd read them but ran out of time. She's older now and wants to move them on. There were some from the main series, some Penguin Poets I coveted and some original Penguin Classics I didn't have. I left the vintage Pelicans behind because I have to draw the line somewhere. I was quite pleased with the lot for $1.00 per book.
What am I reading this week? I am reading a wonderfully quirky book A Tale for the Time Being by Ruth Ozeki. I will have more to say about that later. I am only 96 (out of 422 pages) into it but I'm trying to get it done before our book club talks about it the first week of March. I need to read 25 pages a day to get it done. So far I'm ahead of that.
I hope everyone else is having a decent week and if you know anything about any of these books or if you'd like to sign up to babysit Cousin Eddie when I'm trying to catalogue my books or work on my jigsaw puzzle of 1000 pieces I'd appreciate it.
