I at last read Pride and Prejudice, universally considered as of best novels of all times.  I read Mr. Smaller's Planet by Saul Bellow but did not post upon it.  

I once again observed on June 14 Bloom's Day.  

In July I will continue reading short stories by Mavis Gallant, hopefully four set in Paris Stories.  I will continue reading along with Buried in Prints Mavis Gallant Short Stories Project, scheduled to run until September of 2020

I will once again participate in Paris in July, a great event hosted by Thyme for Tea.

All of my old projects still continue, some may go into hibernation for a while.

I thank Ambrosia Bousweau as will as Oleander Bousweau for their valuable contributions.  I anticipate Rafalesca Bousweau joining us soon.

My thanks to Max u for his very kind provision of Amazon Gift Cards.

I offer my gratitude to all who take the time to leave a comment.

My blog will turn ten in July.  I will start a new occasional feature, ten years ago on The Reading Life.

I love the button you created for Paris in July! I have used it in my post. This year I want to read some French novellas, keeping it to classics. Mavis Gallant did not thrill me, but perhaps you will like her better. Congratulations on ten years!!! Wow, time is fast.
