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!
Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there!
Robin finished her junior year with flying colors, and left for summer break yesterday. She’s visiting her friend and roommate Owl this week. She will get home Friday night — can’t wait to see her!
My week was quiet; I did some blogging and a lot of rather disorganized attempts to organize things: life, computer, etc. I’ve got a long way to go. On the plus side, I did get out for a few walks before the rains returned. I am trying to fit at least some exercise into my life! Mr. Bookwyrm and I went out Saturday to run some errands and see The Jungle Book. I thought it was very good; the CGI was amazing, the performances were good (Bill Murray makes a great Baloo), and the young actor who played Mowgli is both talented and cute.
Today is the last regular rehearsal before the concert, which is a week from today. I always get to this point and think, “They aren’t ready.” Then by the concert, it always comes together and I end up feeling so proud of them! But I plan to work them hard today. *winks*
Isn’t that a gorgeous image? It’s a free printable from Ash and Crafts.

What I’m Reading/Watching
In audio, I finished listening to the Great World Religions: Christianity. Next up is probably the course on Islam in the same series. In TV, we finished seasons 5, 6, and 7 of Poirot and are one episode into season 8, which is halfway. Beginning with season 6, each season has longer episodes (100+ minutes instead of under 60) but fewer of them — four in season 6, but only two in seasons 7 and 8.

For Review or Review Consideration
Purchased for Kindle
I had preordered the new Rick Riordan and Mary Balogh books — and forgot they were coming this week until they showed up on my Kindle. *happy dance!* Will of the Empress went on sale, and I always grab Tamora Pierce books whenever they’re on sale. The rest were also on sale; I’ve read Old Bones but not in well over a decade, and the others I’ve not read before.
Print Books Purchased
I’ve wanted these revised versions of a series I love for a very long time, and I finally gave in and ordered used hardcovers before they all disappear.
From the Library
I wish you all a terrific week, and happy reading!
