This week has been crazy busy with indexing work, and the next two look even busier, so posts will be a bit on the sparse side for a bit, and visiting blogs is something I can only dream of. I knew this was coming when I took three projects on at once, but I didn’t realize how rough it would be!
Mr. Bookwyrm and I celebrated my birthday this week; he made me dinner and a cake. And my voice teacher is back in town after a few weeks off, so I had a good lesson on Friday.
I did make it back to the library book sale, this time as a cashier. (Yes, of course I bought more books! I have absolutely no willpower when it comes to library sales. LOL) Other than that, I haven’t got much to report; it’s pretty much been work around the clock.
Looking back on what I just wrote, it sounds like a lot of complaining, and I don’t mean to. I’m really grateful for the work and the income. I wish the scheduling had worked out a little better, but given that a year ago I was hardly getting any projects at all, I’m really pleased with where I am now!

New Additions to the Hoard
Nothing this week, thank goodness; I’m swamped as it is!
From the Library Book Sale
I bought about 20 paperbacks when I cashiered for the book sale on $5-a-box day. I won’t list all the titles, but most of them were Nora Roberts romances or romantic suspense, plus a smattering of Susan Mallery and one or two other authors. At a quarter each, I figure it’s cheaper than the gas I’d use going to the library to check them out there!
Bought for my Kindle
I went a little overboard on the Kindle books this month – but everything was on sale except Blood of Olympus, and I had to buy that one because my library copy was due and unrenewable, and I wasn’t finished yet!
Happy reading, everybody!
