A busy week has begun in the political world and in the shopping world (yes, two very different ends of the spectrum when it comes to importance, but it is always good to be in the know). And I couldn’t help but share with you all that I can.

Okay, you book-lovers. If you are an Amazon Prime Member (and even if you are not), Prime Day is today! What is this “prime day” you may be asking? Well, it’s simply the second annual event for you to save significantly on Amazon. But the deals go quickly. Some are only available for a few hours and some won’t be available for a few hours. All of the books above are either on sale now for only five hours more or will be available for a 20% discount at least in a few hours. Below are the links to all of them.

If you are not an Amazon Prime member ($99/yr for free 2-day shipping and other innumerable discounts), you can become one for a day for free! Just don’t forget to unsubscribe if you don’t want to continue this service. Personally, I love it and have been a member for four years. The books arrive quickly and save me so much money in shipping based on what I need for books and reviews here on the blog.

~P.S. It’s not just books that are for sale, the list is long and wide. Be sure to have a look here

In Britain on Wednesday (tomorrow) home affairs secretary (equivalent to our Homeland Security secretary here in the states) Theresa May will become the second female Prime Minister for Britain. A whirlwind of events that followed the Brexit vote on June 23rd brought about the swift change of leadership, but it was not without surprises, twists and turns along the way. Initially current Prime Minister David Cameron announced his resignation and indicated he would leave 10 Downing Street in October (following the official vote of the 150,000 member of the conservative party on September 9), but with Energy Minister Andrea Leadsom stepping down from the running Monday after controversial comments about a PM having children, the top position was given with a roar by her Tory party in Parliament to May.

While she did campaign, albeit not as aggressively as other leaders in government, to remain in the European Union, she has vowed to back the voters decision and support the exit, “Brexit means Brexit, and we are going to make a success of it.” Becoming the 76th Prime Minister, she will meet with Queen Elizabeth before stepping into her new home at 10 Downing.

  1. Amazon should have had the sale on 7/11–two prime numbers.
    I recently re-read “To Kill a Mockingbird” before launching into “Go Set a Watchman.” Both are superb. But Mockingbird is a lot better than Watchman. Thank goodness for editors! Harper Lee really nailed it when she had to redo the story from a child’s point of view.
    I have a feeling Theresa May is going to get an earful from the queen.

  2. You might enjoy “Dinner with Edward” by Isabel Vincent. It’s a really well written memoir about life, food, friendship, fashion, and savoring life. Takes place in New York. I came across it at a book festival however you can pick it up on amazon. I loved reading it.
