Last September Sisters in Crime put out a call to bloggers to participate in a September Sinc-Up. My favorite of the seven questions they suggested is “What books are on your nightstand right now?” and I lost no time in posting my TBR list here.

Gurgle. Gurgle. Gurgle.
Funny noise. It’s the Sunday after we returned home from Salem, and I’ve been hearing it all day long. What could it be, I wondered? Occasionally.

This week I'm celebrating:
1) After continuing to stress out over the weekend, worry because I was falling behind on self-imposed deadlines, not sleep enough, and be over-critical of everything I did, I finally went out with a friend on Monday and she helped me regain perspective.
