Total pages read: 531

Total # of books for the year: 47.  The Boyfriend and I finished Downton Abbey, but it was also a rough week for me.  It was bad enough that I had to put down all of my books, except for Bookplate Special, and pick up The Princess Bride.  I just couldn’t handle reading anything that would hit my emotional buttons the way Mockingjay and Primary Inversion had been.  Luckily, the weekend was good and I started coming out of my funk.  The Boyfriend and I went with some friends to see the new Star Trek movie, and we also decided to exchange our 3rd anniversary presents a little early instead of waiting for September 1st.  I got him the hardcover edition of The Aeronaut’s Windlass by Jim Butcher.  I wish I could have afforded to get him something more, but he was thrilled and that’s what counts.  He surprised me with a Sony Walkman audio player.  I’ve been wanting a replacement for my very old and craptastic Zune ever since Microsoft stopped supporting it, and not long after that, it stopped holding a charge for more than an hour or so.
