Booksie's Shelves, November 10, 2016

What a busy fall!  The Presidential elections have come and gone so hopefully the country can concentrate on something else for a while.  I've noticed that fall tv shows are having a harder time catching on this year as their schedules have been interrupted over and over with debates, election coverage, primaries and fall sports.  One of the new shows, Conviction, has already been cancelled although I think only three or four episodes have actually been able to air.

Things are busy here also.  Our elderly dog has had to have foot surgery for the third time.  She has a benign tumor under a footpad that is impossible to completely remove so it returns again and again.  She is a real trooper but going under gets more problematic every time.  I've been getting books from a Facebook round robin which is always fun, and I've gotten several review books that I'm excited about.  I've been Christmas shopping and making plans to see Broadway plays.  We've got A Gentleman's Guide To Murder coming up right after Thanksgiving and then An American In Paris right after the Christmas holidays.  Theatre is my happy place so I'm excited for both.
