Things we did at the cottage

September 18th, 2018Posted by Nancy

Back from two gorgeous weeks in Haliburton, Ontario.  The weather was almost perfect and even the cool days were considered a relief from this sweltering summer.  We were swimming right up until the last day. However, the glorious weather meant I did not accomplish as much as I might have hoped on the writing front (sure, blame the weather for it). However, it was a banner year for reading, though the photo doesn’t do it justice.

The physical books not pictured covered being a Venetophile (No Vulgar Hotel, Judith Martin) and a book about synesthesia as research for the novel.

On the ebook side, I devoured everything from The Riviera Set (about royalty, artists, and Russian mobsters on the Riviera), Kelly Barnhill’s excellent Dreadful Young Ladies, a reread of The Picture of Dorian Gray, and The Ingenious and Diverting Letters of A Lady: Travels into Spain by Marie-Catherine D’Aulnoy.  All told, I polished off 22 books in 2 weeks.  Not bad.
