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!
And yet more indexing! Two down, two to go until I get a breather. The current one is going slowly and I need to pick up the pace if I can. I haven’t done much all week but indexing and a little reading for fun. I desperately need to get out for a walk!
I wish all my compatriots a very happy Independence Day tomorrow! I’ll be working all day and most of the evening, but we hope to stream the fireworks online, either from Washington DC or from Disney World. Robin and Mr. Bookwyrm are planning to watch 1776; I’ll pop in periodically to watch my favorite scenes. (Robin will probably listen to Hamilton again, too. Great show, by the way!) I hope you enjoy your celebrations.

What I’m Reading/Watching
I finished up Sweet Little Lies (Jill Shalvis; ARC), plowed through Read to Death (Terri Farley Moran; ARC) and then took a break from ARCs to read the newest Stephanie Laurens, The Daredevil Snared (purchased.) Next up is a library hold I’ve been waiting for, Aunt Dimity and the Buried Treasure (Nancy Atherton.)
My audio listening is still on hold due to all the indexing, but I did get to listen to a really interesting podcast about the “Rocket Girls” — a group of female “computers” (mathematicians and later, computer scientists and engineers) who worked at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory for what became NASA. Whenever I get back to the audiobooks, I’ll still be working on Great World Religions: Islam and Bill Bryson’s Made in America. And I’m still watching Avatar: The Last Airbender, Season 2; I watched several more episodes this week.

For Review or Review Consideration
The Herriot, Christie, Allingham, and Elkins books are for my Kindle library, even though I’ve already read them. The Mary Jo Putney and Stephanie Laurens were preorders. (I’ve already read the Putney as an ARC, but she’s an autobuy author for me so I preordered it months before I got the ARC.) Zeroes is for Robin, who had Scott Westerfeld as one of her Alpha Writers Workshop teachers several years ago (but I might read it eventually.) Shiver is for Robin, too. Everything else is new to me, and everything was on sale when I bought it, except the two preorders.
Purchased in print
I tried to hold out for the library copy, but in the end, the paperback came down under $9 and I was still pretty far back in the hold line, so I couldn’t resist. My reward for all the indexing I’m doing!
Have a wonderful week, and happy reading!
