Weekly Reading Recap


I'm a day late but finally posting about last week. I really hope all of you on the East coast are safe, warm and dry. We have had lots of wind and some rain, but we're inland and south enough that we didn't get the brunt of the storm.

I had a slower week with reading. I didn't manage to finish anything. I've been reading The Mongol Objective by David Sakmyster. I'm enjoying it but we've been so busy lately, I haven't had much time to read.

I also haven't had much time to review anything. I did write one review: Leaves by Michael Baron. That's it.

My son read Captain Underpants and the Terrifying Return of Tippy Tinkletrousers by Dav Pilkey. He got it from the Scholastic Book Fair at his school last week. He's also just about done with Syren, the fifth book in the Septimus Heap series by Angie Sage.

Currently Reading
I'm still Election! by Dan Gutman and I'm still hoping to review it before the election passes! I'm also still reading The Mongol Objective by David Sakmyster as mentioned above.

Up Next
Next I have a review book to read: Thirty Days with My Father: Finding Peace with Wartime PTSD by Christal Presley.

What are you reading this week? This meme is being hosted by Sheila at Book Journey, so hop over there if you'd like to see what others are reading too.

  1. Hi, Julie -

    Good to hear from you - I was worried when you didn't post that you were affected by the storm. We were in its direct path (and it's not completely over yet), but we are fine - never lost power and our trees are still standing! The kids will probably still be home for a few days, so I don't see this week being very productive for me!

    My boys enjoyed the Captain Underpants books, too - just silly boy fun!

    Hope you find more time for reading this week - enjoy your books!

    Sue

Getting back to blogging

It seems that blogging has dropped to the bottom of my list for the past year, and was pretty low for the year or two prior to that. I love to read, and am continuing to do so, but as my regular readers know I haven't been around much. My last blog post was almost a year ago!!

There are many things that have taken me away from blogging. Work has been much more challenging and interesting these past few years, but that means I really don't want to get back on the computer when I get home at night - or on the weekends.

Family life has been more busy with kids having multiple activities in the evenings, leaving little time to just hang out and write about the books that I read.

I will admit to a bit of a Facebook addiction, which means way too much time spent scrolling through my newsfeed instead of doing something more productive. This is one of the things I'm working on and hoping that this will free up some time for getting back to the blog.

Overall, life is good. Work is …
