This came from Blogging for Books

This was from Edelweiss.

While We're Far Apart

This was a free Amazon download.


This meme conducted by Sheila at Book Journey.

I am reading The Fragrance Shed by a Violet - just about twenty five pages in and am riveted!

The weekend was spent travelling (as usual) out of Colombo. Got back on Sunday. Now to a hectic new week.

The long tube like vegetable is drumsticks (called Murunga here). This is one of the crops grown by us on this property.


  1. Fascinating tree and vegetable! How do you cook it?

    Barracuda is an intriguing title for a book!

  2. The book by Sydney Pearl looks good. It sounds like it could be funny. Is it?

  3. Interesting titles. The Lynn Austin book was very good. Have a great week.

  4. I enjoy your photos on facebook. :-)
    I particularly like the Fiercombe Manor cover. I hope you enjoy all the books!

  5. I'd like to read While We're Far Apart, it looks good!
    Here is my It's Monday post

  6. The Flight Attendant title made me laugh. Hope you enjoy it.

  7. Haven't heard of Murunga, is it similar to anything we would know? ... potato, carrot, beans, sweet potato??

    Diary of a Pissed-Off Flight Attendant HA the title amuses me, hope it's a fun read. I love the cover of While We're Apart. Enjoy your new reads

  8. I love the title "The Fragrance Shed by a Violet".

    I've never heard of the drumsticks or Murunga plant!

  9. A pissed off flight attendant makes me afraid to fly again. And I just got over that phobia. (Not really, but now I am afraid all the more. LOL) Here is my Monday What is a Murunga plant anyway? Sounds like a bean

  10. Wow! A few interesting reads there.

  11. Pissed Off Flight Attendant caught my eye!

    My It's Monday, What Are You Reading

  17. Fiercombe Manor looks good. I've never heard of Murunga. Can you compare it to something else? Enjoy your week!

  18. it's so fascinating to me the different covers used for the same books! like Barracuda - the cover for my copy is completely different. Wonder why publishers do that?!?

  19. What a great week for book arrivals for you! You have some interesting books awaiting you.

  20. I'm trying to figure out your last picture of drumsticks. It feels as if I'm looking down from the sky into a forest of skinny trees. Very interesting!

  21. While We're Far Apart looks beautiful! I hope the story is as good as the cover. :)
