Another busy week, culminating in a visit from my parents, which has been lovely. The coming week promises to be even busier — it’s Holy Week, which for a church choir member means extra rehearsals and lots of extra services. The only night I won’t be singing (between Monday and Sunday) is Wednesday, and even that night I should be at yet another rehearsal! Of course, I wouldn’t be doing all this singing if I didn’t love it; it’s another of my passions, along with reading.
The past week on the blog:
- Tues. 3/19: Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books I Had To Buy… But Are Still Sitting On My Shelf Unread
- Thur. 3/21: Splintered, by A. G. Howard (review)
- Fri. 3/22: The Disappearing Spoon, by Sam Kean (guest review)
- Sat. 3/23: News & Notes: a Supreme Court decision on copyright and the first-sale doctrine; ebook and children’s/YA sales figures; opinion pieces on SF/fantasy cover art, romance novels and feminism, and self-publishing; free ebooks; and more.
The coming week:
- Tues. 3/26: Top Ten Tuesday: The Top Ten Books I Recommend the Most
- Reviews of Etiquette and Espionage (Gail Carriger) and Crystal Cove (Lisa Kleypas)
- Sat. 3/30: News & Notes
This week, I finished 2 books from my TBR pile: Splintered, which I reviewed on Thursday, and Gail Carriger’s Etiquette and Espionage, which was a lot of fun! (Review to come this week.) In addition, I’ve started Crystal Cove by Lisa Kleypas, and will probably finish it by Monday. I’ve also been revisiting Lloyd Alexander’s Prydain Chronicles, this time in audiobook. It’s been at least 15 years since I read them, maybe even 20; I was surprised at how much I’d forgotten! Once I finish book five, I plan to review the series as a whole. Because the Prydain books are re-reads, I’m not counting them toward the TBR pile challenge.
