Sunday Post #3: Reading Through Cold Season

vintage lettersI haven’t been able to do much reading, or writing this month – a sick kid and a sick car have taken all the attention (rightly so!) Thankfully the chaos has calmed. Now I just have to wait and wonder when it will be my turn with the headcold… (cue ominous music.)

Last week on The Inky Whisk

Celine by Peter Heller
Year of No Clutter by Eve O. Schaub

And “Kitchen Library,” about recipe cards, booklets, and other ephemera that get left behind in vintage cookbooks.

Currently reading

Review: Year of No Clutter by Eve O. Schaub


Repost: The Farmette Cookbook by Imen McDonnell


  1. Sorry to hear about your sick little one! I know how that can be. My daughter’s cold last on and off for about 3 months! So frustrating. The weather around here hasn’t helped. It’s warm one day and cold the next. It’s been hard on my sinus’.

    Hope your little one gets well soon, and you have a great week!

      Yes, the cold leaves quickly but the cough is around for ages!

  2. Awe, I do hope you avoid the nasty head cold, but ’tis the season! Enjoy your current reads, and I look forward to those reviews next week 🙂

  3. Glad things are calming down, and hopefully you don’t get sick! It seems like everyone was sick over the winter, hopefully the spring will be better! Happy reading this week.

  4. Aw, so glad things are calming down. Love Amelia!

  5. Girl in Disguise looks amazing. I love the cover! I hope you enjoy reading.

    Here’s my It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? post.

    Kitchen Library reminds me to check through my cookbooks before they go on my rummage sale. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

      I always give books a quick flip – I have a bad habit of using anything at hand as a bookmark!

  7. You are well ahead in your review reading. Hope the cold passes you by and you get some good reading time.

      Thanks! I try to protect at least my evening reading time. 🙂

  8. What a LOVELY blog, and love your blog’s name.

    City of Light City of Poison definitely looks like a book I would enjoy.

    Thanks for sharing, and have a wonderful week.

  10. Sounds like real life got in the way of blogging and so it should. Hope this week is calmer.

  11. I was laid out all weekend with a cold myself. So ready for spring. Girl in Disguise in on my TBR. I love that cover. Happy reading!
