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!
Well, I’m back into the thick of indexing, plus trying to get things ready for my choruses to start up. I’m looking at the calendar and panicking—I have so much to do this coming week, and nearly as much in the two weeks after that. So please accept my apologies if I’m a bit slow to get around to comments and visits. I’m trying, I really am!
Other than that, I have very little news. I managed to get out for a walk a few times this week, thanks to the lovely weather. Mr. Bookwyrm and I have enjoyed the break in the heat, but we’re headed back into the mid-80s this week. (At least it’s not the 90s—I hope we’ve seen the end of those for this year.) And Robin’s block course is over, which I’m sure is a relief for her, as it involved a lot of intense creative work and not enough sleep. But she did well, writing over 50K words in about a month. (If it sounds like NaNoWriMo, it basically was.)
Next weekend, both the National Book Festival in DC and the Baltimore Book Festival are taking place…and I’m not sure I’ll have the time to go to either of them. I’ll probably be working all weekend. If I do go, though, I’ll be sure to take my camera!

What I’m Reading/Watching
I’m almost finished with Shades of Milk and Honey, the first in the Glamourist Histories by Mary Robinette Kowal (purchased), which is like Jane Austen with artistic magic. I’ve been re-reading the Collegium Chronicles by Mercedes Lackey; not my favorites of hers, but enjoyable anyway. Next up is probably either Furthermore by Tahere Mafi, or one of my ARCs.
I’m back to listening to Made in America by Bill Bryson (it’s not narrated by him, unfortunately, but it’s quite interesting.) And we finally watched The Imitation Game, which was amazing! Look for my review on Monday. Plus, we watched Cat Among the Pigeons and Third Girl, both in the Poirot mystery series starring David Suchet; the first was very good and the second merely good. (Although I do love Zoe Wanamaker as Mrs. Oliver, Agatha Christie’s thinly-veiled self-portrait.)
