What did I do all month? I listened to more books than read books because it is spring and the yard is demanding attention. I also cleaned my office and closet. I had a little cold. Part of May was spent helping the college students for whom we are community hosts pack up so we could store some of their stuff over the summer.
On the second to last day of the month we visited the COASTAL MAINE BOTANICAL GARDENS and saw some lovely plantings. If you visit Maine you simply must see this place.

Besides reviews and Outlander Recaps I had Days off and Sunday posts featuring my adventures in house painting and yardwork, I had a guest post and giveaway from Jessica Peterson and a tally of April’s books and blogging.
I added four books to the 2015 Contemporary Romance Reading Challenge which I had met at the end of last month. I have kept on adding books to the contemporary romance reading challenge for which I am at 30 books, and for the Literary Pickers challenge I am at 76 items. I am getting down to more obscure items though and it is getting harder to find them in the books!
