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’m back! You may have noticed I didn’t post at all between March 19 and March 28. I was working on an index that just wouldn’t quit. It wasn’t difficult, just densely packed with lots and lots of information. I couldn’t really afford the time for blogging until I got it done. I finally turned it in at the end of the week. Now I’m looking forward to a little time off. Off from indexing, anyway; the next project comes in about a week and a half. But I’ve got plenty to do before then, from overdue housework and decluttering, to knitting and spinning… and blogging!

What I’m Reading/Watching
Reading: I had very little time to read over the last two weeks — at least, to read for fun! I continued my Nora Roberts binge, finishing The Collector (a reread) and then Birthright (a first-time read for me, and eligible for The Backlist Reader Challenge.) And I read Stephanie Lauren’s latest book, A Conquest Impossible to Resist, which was a bit of a disappointment. (review) I’m still slowly making my way through First Rider’s Call.
Listening to: I finished listening to Something Wonderful, a history of Rodgers and Hammerstein and their musicals. Since this is the audiobook version, it would have been a natural fit to include at least snippets of all the e songs discussed in the book, but I assume that copyright made that too expensive. So Mr. Bookwyrm ripped all the shows that we own recordings of, and I put them in my iTunes so I could stop and listen to the music as I went along. Now that I’m done with that book, I’m listening to a short children’s classic: Mary Poppins. It is decades since I read the books, and I’d forgotten some bits, so it’s fun to revisit it.
Watching: We finished Eureka, Season 2!. Hopefully this week we can we start Star Trek: Discovery, Season 2. And we’ll be continuing with Eureka as well, of course.
