The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimberly @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead. It's Monday, What Are You Reading is a fun weekly meme now hosted by Kathryn at Book Date, where we share what we've read and reviewed over the past week and what we plan to read next.
I had a great time with my mom and sister watching Moscow Ballet perform the Great Russian Nutcracker. We had fantastic seats and best of all was seeing how much my mom enjoyed it. After the show we went out to eat at an Italian restaurant which was also really nice.
The rest of the week had its ups and downs. The windy weather caused a minor injury when my car door decided to try to shut on my leg. I am bruised and pretty sore when I put any weight on it. On the positive side, our holiday open house at the library was a big success. Our only issue was that the event attendance declined after the turkey bowling and Santa and the reindeer left. Still everyone had a good time and we learned some things to put into practice next year. It turns out that people don't want to stick around the library for four hours! Next time we will condense our events and have indoor and outdoor things going on at the same time while there is a crowd.

#Fitreaders Weekly Check In
#Fitreaders is hosted by Felicia at The Geeky Blogger and Jen at That's What I'm Talking About
Not a good workout week and it didn't help that I gave in to temptation and ate cookies, apple pie and other treats! My leg injury kind of sidelined me for the rest of the week so I didn't get much walking in. Hopefully it will feel better soon and I'll be able to get back to exercising.
Last Sunday--walked at least a mile between the parking garage, the ballet venue and restaurant
Wednesday--walked 1 mile
Friday--nothing (injured leg)
Saturday--nothing (though I was on my feet taking pictures at the open house till my leg bothered me)
Last week on my blog:
Soundless by Richelle Mead (review)
Mrs. Roosevelt's Confidante by Susan Elia MacNeal
Liked this one though the mystery was anticlimactic. I don't like it when the killer is revealed at the beginning and there isn't much more to figure out.
Brooklyn by Colm Toibin
I thought this was good till the protagonist behaved in ways I didn't agree with (towards the end of the book) and the story seemed to end abruptly. I still plan to see the movie though.
Winter by Marissa Meyer
So far it's pretty good. I am hopeful that I will like it as much as the rest of the series.
What I plan to read next:
See Me by Nicholas Sparks
Ana of California by Andi Teran
