September Reading Wrap Up

Hey guess what? We are several days into a new month and I have yet to update my September reading. I can blame a lot of things. And I will. Work was especially busy this past week with a workshop up lots of time. Last weekend the little monster got a cold which has been a fun game of is it COVID? IS IT? And having a toddler cough in your face an entire weekend isn't great for your health, so then I got sick. It's just been a lot, is what I'm saying. But suddenly I realized that post I meant to write last weekend ne'er was writ and I am way, way behind. Moreso than usual. 
Here's the germ monster, practicing his chopstick skills

My library card expired on me this week, which also meant none of my library apps worked and thus necessitated a trip to the library Saturday morning. But all is fixed, all is well.
Also, tbc, I own P&P as an audiobook as well as physical covers. Yet I still just got a copy out of the library. I dunno.
