Week in Review

       aaa1


And today, we're back to sleet. Sleet two weeks ago, 73 degrees last Monday, sleet again today. Where on earth is Spring????

Anyway, I mentioned last week that I had joined in the 40 Bags in 40 Days 2014 Decluttering Challenge. My office is almost completely decluttered! I just have a couple more spots to deal with. One of the things I did is pull a bunch of books off my shelves and put them on Paperback Swap. I have others that have been listed there for a long time. I think I'm going to take them off the list and take them to Goodwill at this point. I thought about having a giveaway, but then I'd have to pay to ship a huge box of books to someone!!

Blog Posts and Reviews 
I only managed to publish one review this past week. It's a review of a middle grade fiction book called Woods Runner by Gary Paulsen. I plan to work on more of the middle grade reviews this week. I really need to catch up!

And for those of you who are wondering when I'm getting back to adult book reviews, that will be in April since I'm focusing on middle grade in March.

Reading
I finished reading Greetings from Nowhere by Barbara O'Connor. Then I couldn't help myself and I started reading The Hero's Guide to Being an Outlaw by Christopher Healy, instead of reading another Battle of the Books selection.

We went to Target on the weekend and C got two new books. He bought Diary of a Wimpy Kid #8: Hard Luck by Jeff Kinney. And I bought him Origami Yoda #5: Princess Labelmaker to the Rescue by Tom Angleberger. About five hours after getting home from the store, both books were read. I'm starting to think my son is a speed reader! He is still reading Ungifted by Gordon Korman, which is on the Battle of the Books list. I'm thinking he isn't quite as into that one since it's taking him a lot longer to read it.

What are you reading this week? It's Monday! is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey, so hop over there if you'd like to see what others are reading too. You can also check out the younger version of It's Monday!

  1. Princess Labelmaker looks really delightful. I have yet to find Books 4 and 5 of the Origami Yoda series. Tom Angleberger is so prolific. My 12 year old girl loves the series, so I'm hoping to surprise her with these new titles. :)
