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!
It’s been a week of lots of freelance work. When I’ve come up for air, I’ve watched comfort movies, read one of my comfort books, knitted, and spun… Still missing our kitty Tasha (who died on the 19th, if you missed last week’s Sunday Post.)
On a happier note, we celebrated my birthday this weekend. Robin and my parents sent lovely, thoughtful gifts that I will really enjoy, and Mr. Bookwyrm gave me two books I’ve had on my wish list for a while. But the most exciting gift is that after Thanksgiving, he’s taking me for a “Falconry Experience” — an hour or so to see the birds close up, see them fly, and even get to have one perch on me. I’ve wanted to do this for ages, but didn’t know of anywhere around here that offered these kind of hawk walks. I am over the moon about this! (There may have been some squee-ing involved.)
Halloween is this week, and I am SO not ready. I hope I can squeeze out time to clean up and decorate the living room and porch and carve the jack o’lantern before the trick-or-treaters come. I also have choir practice that night.
Well, I’m pretty much bombing my challenges at this point. I utterly failed Blog Ahead with only 2.5 posts completed, and I read only a couple of ARCs for ARCtober. Worst, I’m really behind on The Backlist Reader Challenge, which is super embarrassing because I’m the host.

What I’m Reading/Watching
Reading: I reread an old favorite, Pilgrim’s Inn by Elizabeth Goudge. It’s the first of her adult novels I ever read; I read it first in high school and it has been one of my comfort books ever since.
Listening to: I finished The Fated Sky by Mary Robinette Kowal. It’s a sequel to The Calculating Stars and it’s excellent. I was enjoying it so much, I was sorry to finish it! Now I have to wait until 2020 for another book in the series (The Relentless Moon), though it won’t be from the same main character’s point of view.
Watching: I’ve watched several Miss Marple movies this week: A Murder Is Announced, Murder at the Vicarage, and The 4:50 From Paddington… knitting or spinning while I watched them. That, combined with the amount of work I have, is why I’ve only finished 2 books this week.
