It's Monday what are you reading.

Well it's May already.  April just flew by, it was very busy, and May doesn't look like it's going to slow down.  I didn't read great amounts, but I thoroughly enjoyed reading my Irish authors throughout the month of March, and finished Maeve Binchy, The Glass Lake, into the first week of April.  And then I had a Sarah Addison Allen thing happen to me.  If you've read Sugar Queen, you'll remember the character found books appropriate to her life, at the moment, dilemma.  Well I went to my monthly Antique Assoc. meeting and didn't we have a guest speaker on Stain glass windows and their history.  She focuses on Notre Dame.  Meanwhile in the book world,  Margaret from Books Please, had recommended, The Cleaner of Chartres.  I really enjoyed the read, and was now able to visualize the lovely descriptions.

Up next Pretty Girls
