Sunday Post – 8/21/2022

August 21, 2022 Sunday Post 15

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!

I am also linking to Mailbox Mondaythe gathering place for readers to share the books that came in their mailbox during the last week, and to Stacking the Shelves, hosted by Marlene at Reading Reality.

This Week

Indexing. So. Much. Indexing. Also a little knitting, a little reading, a little TV, and a fair bit of laundry.

What I’ve Been Reading/Watching

Reading: I finished Mistress of Birds, the newest Albion novel by Celia Lake. I reread Over Sea, Under Stone for the Dark Is Rising series readalong hosted by Annabel at AnnaBookBel; the discussion is on August 24 on her blog. I also reread The River Knows by Amanda Quick and The Blue Castle by L. M. Montgomery. Currently, I am reading A Dreadful Splendor by B. R. Myers (ARC) and rereading With This Ring by Amanda Quick. Tonight I will start buddy-reading Marple: Twelve New Mysteries with Anne at Books of My Heart. We’re going to read one story per day, and discuss them daily.

Read-A-Thin progress (prompts). We’re more than half-way through the month, so here’s how I’m doing on this August challenge. I’ve read 7 books that I feel qualify for the Read-a-thin. (I’m not counting rereads unless they also qualify toward a yearly goal.) I’m making progress on the book prompts, but I need to work on the self-care prompts; I haven’t done any of them yet.

Listening to: Threads of Life: A History of the World Through the Eye of a Needle, by Clare Hunter.

Watching: All Creatures Great and Small Season 2, a NOVA episode about eagles, and both episodes of Ireland’s Wild Coast. If you have access to PBS, I highly recommend the latter for the gorgeous cinematography.

Added to the Hoard this week

      Actually, indexing books is my job! I create back-of-the-book indexes for books that are soon to be published. I can’t give details of any given project, but the current project is in the area of art history and biography. It’s turned out to be a bit more complex than I anticipated.

      Wishing you a great week, and may all your books be good ones!

    Good luck with the indexing! I like some of those covers- especially the first couple.

    I may have to waych that Ireland show.

    A new Tasha Alexander and the Claudia gray- those both look fab. I’m looking forward to station Eternity as well- new Mur Lafferty!
