The Sunday Post is a meme sponsored by the wonderful Kimba, the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.
The big excitement for this week actually takes place tonight, when the children’s and youth choruses I direct and the adult chorus in which I sing present our fall concert. We had a good “dress” rehearsal this morning (much too early this morning!), and I’m really pleased. It should go well.

From the Library:
I’ve signed up for the Clean out your E-reader Challenge hosted by Fantasy is More Fun and Because Reading is more fun. The focus of the challenge is ebook freebies and bargain books, whether downloaded from a retailer like Amazon or received for review through NetGalley or Edelweiss. I’m hoping this will help me get through some of those Netgalley review copies! I’ve read about 5 books this month so far, which isn’t as many as I’d hoped. I’m in a bit of a slump, I’m afraid. It doesn’t help that my e-reader has slowed down to near-glacial pace, so it takes twice as long to turn a page as it used to.
