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 also linking to Stacking the Shelves cohosted by Tynga’s Reviews and Marlene at Reading Reality.
Mr. Bookwyrm was on travel this week. I had big plans for getting a lot done around the house while he was gone, but that didn’t happen. I’m so disorganized. Where does the time go?! However, I did get into town on several day to pick up my new glasses (or rather, new lenses in the same old frames), run several errands, and see one of my specialists. (I’m fine; it was just a routine check-in.)
A new index project came in Friday, so I’ll be working this week. It’s also Holy Week for Christians (the lead-up to Easter), so we will be singing in church services Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights. Easter Day will be relatively quiet with just the two of us. But we still dye eggs and prepare Easter baskets for each other!
If you celebrate Passover this coming week, I wish you happy Pesach and chag sameach! If you celebrate Easter, have a blessed Holy Week and a happy Easter! And if you’re celebrating another holiday or holy day this week, I wish you a very happy holiday as well.

What I’m Reading/Watching
Reading: I was a very fickle reader this week, flitting from book to book and hardly finishing any of them. I’m almost finished reading Devil’s Daughter by Lisa Kleypas. I reread an old favorite, Elizabeth Marie Pope’s The Sherwood Ring (review); it’s the only one I actually finished except for the Mary Poppins audiobook. I’m still rereading First Rider’s Call, but I made some progress. I’m also rereading Snow White and Rose Red, a fairytale retelling by Patricia Wrede that I read back in the early 1990s and haven’t read since. And I’m rereading Break In, one of Dick Francis’s mid-career mysteries.
Listening to: I finished Mary Poppins by P.L. Travers, read by Sophie Thompson, and I’m almost done with A Wrinkle in Time, read by Hope Davis. Both readers are quite good. I like listening to books I’ve read before, because if my attention is diverted for a few seconds, I don’t really miss anything.
Watching: We started watching Star Trek: Discovery, Season 2, but I didn’t watch anything while Mr. Bookwyrm was away. I had planned to, but just never got around to it.
New Additions to the Hoard
Cover links take you to Goodreads.
Purchased in Print
I bought all of these at the library mini-booksale. True Betrayals is signed by the author. I love Jan Brett and own a number of her books, but somehow I had missed The Easter Egg…and it’s perfect for the season!
Purchased for Kindle
The Rhys Bowen, Lisa Kleypas, and McCaffrey books were on sale, as was An Enchantment of Ravens. I’ve been reading the library’s paperback copy of Snow White and Rose Red, but the font is sometimes bothersome, so I broke down and bought the Kindle edition. And I decided to reread Dick Francis’s Break In this week (and probably its sequel, Bolt.)
