Sunday Post – 4/23/2017

April 23, 2017 Sunday Post 14

The Sunday Post is hosted by the wonderful Kimba, the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news, recap the past week, take a look ahead, and showcase our new treasures — I mean books!

Sunday Post

I’m still tired a lot of the time, but I think there’s been a little bit of improvement. Mr. Bookwyrm drove me to the Friends of the Library booksale on Friday night, where I bought way too many books (and about 8 opera recordings, yay! I’ve been wanting to expand my knowledge and/or reacquaint myself with some of the better-known operas, but I haven’t had any recordings except Die Zauberflöte – The Magic Flute.) Robin gave me a list of books too, so we were shopping for three people. We came home with two big boxes, nearly full. I don’t know if I could have made it if he hadn’t driven. As it was, I was wiped out by the time we left.

Other than that, I’ve been trying to work as much as I can, and rest when I have to. This afternoon, I’ve got to muster enough energy for the second-to-last rehearsal for the choruses I direct. The concert is next Sunday. The kids are doing great; I’m the one who feels a little unprepared!

 

Last Week on the Blog

What I’m Reading/Watching

Reading: I’m still working on The Lost Kingdom of Bamarre (Gail Carson Levine; ARC.) I finished A Bedtime Yarn (ARC), which is cute and sweet. I also read Eclipse Bay, Dawn in Eclipse Bayand Summer in Eclipse Bay by Jayne Ann Krentz (Kindle; all three purchased recently; all count toward The Backlist Reader Challenge.) And I reread Second Sight, White Lies, and Sizzle and Burn by Jayne Ann Krentz/Amanda Quick—they’re the first three books in the Arcane Society series. (I didn’t post covers of those three.)

Listening to: Hidden Figuresby Margo Lee Shetterly.

Watching: We finished watching Prince Caspian, but other than that, we haven’t really watched much this week.

For Review or Review Consideration

Many thanks to Tundra Books!

Purchased for Kindle

All on sale, except Summer in Eclipse Bay. Hey, I had to finish the series, right?

Purchased in Print

 I bought too many books to post photos of all of them. I found a bunch of Nora Roberts titles (some I’ve read but want to own, others I haven’t read), two or three by Amanda Quick (both read and unread), four Cassandra Clare books (going to give her a try because Robin likes her), a few older Dick Francis  and Dorothy Sayers titles in hardcover to replace my teeny-print paperbacks, and a smattering of other authors (Robin Hobb, Edith Pattou, Kaitlyn Dunnett…) Oh, and two knitting books. All in all, a good haul!

 

Have a wonderful week, and happy reading!

      I usually put it on my schedule weeks or even months in advance, and block the time out so I can go. I miss going with my daughter, though. She loves the sales as much as I do.

      They are hugely dangerous. I haven’t unpacked the box from the fall booksale yet, let alone this one. I need to make room on my shelves first!

      Thank you, Di. I’m sorry I’m late in replying; I got really behind while I was sick and recovering. But yes, I’m feeling much better now, thank you!

    Your husband is so sweet! I hope you continue improving and feeling better day by day. Good luck with the final rehearsal and the concert! I’m sure it will go off without a hitch.

      He is wonderful! I’m pretty late in replying, but thank you for the good wishes; I’m mostly recovered now. And the concert went very well. 🙂
