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!
I bought a new spinning wheel! SQUEEEE! Well, technically I bought an old spinning wheel, or rather, a used one. I’ve been wanting one for quite a while now, and finally a really good deal came along. It’s an Ashford Traditional, the older 1990s model—the same model I learned on, the one Robin and Owl share. I test-spun a little before I bought it, and it seems to be in perfect working condition. So from time to time, I’ll be sharing what I’ve been spinning as well as what I’ve been knitting.
The coming week is yet another in the series of Very Busy Weeks I’ve been having, so again, I’m not sure how much blogging/visiting/commenting I’ll be able to get to. On the plus side, it’s indexing work, so it’s income!

What I’m Reading/Watching
Reading: My library hold came in, so I read Lost and Found Sisters by Jill Shalvis, which I really enjoyed. I also finished Cat of the Baskervilles (ARC), and I’m most of the way through A Scandal in Battersea (library), both of which languished for a couple of weeks half-read. However, I need to do better than this if I’m going to meet my goals for the Take Control of Your TBR Pile Challenge! Likewise my Goodreads Challenge—I’m 6 books behind schedule.
Listening to: I finished Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (a re-listen) and started Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (ditto.)
Watching: Father Brown season 5, but not much. I think we managed 2 episodes this week.

For Review or Review Consideration
Purchased for Kindle
I read Crystal Gardens when it came out, and reviewed it here. Walking on Water is one of L’Engle’s nonfiction books; I read it years ago but can’t find my copy. The other two are new to me, but Finding Camlann, while it is a novel, ties into my lifelong interest in the Arthurian legends and whatever historicity they may have. I haven’t indulged that interest in a long time, and the synospis and reviews for this book made it seem like a good opportunity to jump back in.
