Happy Saturday to you all!! It is that time of year again and the school year is in full swing.  My ‘little’ one has started high school and with it Navy Junior Reserve Officer Training Course(NJROTC).  I feel almost as though I’m going through boot camp again and at my age, that is not fun

This week is equal parts borrowed and owned in the way of books.  Borrowing can be little less satisfying in that I like having access to the books I like best and borrowed books don’t offer that long term as a rule.  The benefit comes in when there are tomes that don’t appeal to me don’t occupy space best left for those that do….long term.

For long term I got these:

washingtons_immortals  I’m looking forward to Washington’s Immortals by Patrick K. O’Donnel  because I love to learn the obscure facts from history that give a sense of reality to what seems to have occurred an eon ago.
RosemaryandRuebySeananMcGuire Of course, you may have noticed I have already posted my review on Rosemary and Rue Seanan McGuire.

I also picked up for free from Audible was The Very First Damn Thing by Jodi TaylorIt is a prequel in the Chronicles of St. Mary series.  This may be something to look a little deeper into!

For the short haul, I borrowed these gems:

jaws I have to admit to this being a nostalgia pick for me.  I remember standing in long lines just to be able to see this movie when it first came out. I was very young at the time.
 The Price of Salt  The movie is based on the book The Price of Salt by Patricia Highsmith.  Since it is a period piece, it’s interesting to measure that against current sensibilities.
 the_decendants_by_kaui_hart_hemmings  To round out my movie to book picks we have The Descendants by Kaui Hart Hemmings.   

So, tell me, whether for education, inspiration or entertainment, what did you buy, borrow or acquire for indefinite stewardship to fill your shelves?
