The Sunday Post is hosted by the wonderful Kimberly, 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! This week, I’m also linking to Stacking the Shelves, hosted by Tynga’s Reviews.
It was a relatively uneventful week. Mr. Bookwyrm had to go in to work for several days this week, but we hope he won’t have to do so again for a while. Friday I went to an appointment with my cardiologist, a routine followup to my ER trip back in May. (Not to worry; I’m fine.)
Today we will “attend” church online, as we have since the pandemic began. I really miss being in church, and singing in church, and the Eucharist. But I’m so grateful that live-streaming technology exists, and that some churches have continued to livestream their services, especially since most of the experts still rank church services in the “high risk” category.
Is anyone else having a hard time being productive these days? I don’t feel like I’ve gotten much done in weeks, at least when I look at all the things I wish I had done. I have started working more consistently on my DIY physical therapy for my frozen shoulder, which is good, and I’ve gotten a few knitting projects finished. (I’ll post them Wednesday.) And I actually have some posts scheduled ahead this week. But the grand decluttering project has gone nowhere.

What I’m Reading/Watching
Reading: I finished rereading Fortune’s Fool and The Snow Queen, and went on to The Sleeping Beauty (all by Mercedes Lackey). Those have been my comfort reading, especially at night when I’m awake with insomnia. I also started Death at High Tide (Hannah Dennison; ARC) for an upcoming blog tour. And I read a few more chapters of An Extraordinary Union. (Click titles for my review or to see the title on Goodreads.)
Listening: I have mostly been listening to podcasts, mainly Harry Potter and the Sacred Text and Imaginary Worlds.
Watching: We’ve been rewatching the 1980s Adventures of Sherlock Holmes mysteries starring Jeremy Brett, and I rewatched Sleeping Murder, one of the Miss Marple miniseries starring Joan Hickson. (Miss Marple — the ones starring Hickson — is my go-to comfort reading.) And we watched another episode or two of Warehouse 13. But mostly, it’s just been Stephen Colbert and Trevor Noah.
