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.
It was a quiet week with not much going on. On Wednesday I had the day off so I went to see Hidden Figures, which was excellent. I haven't read the book yet. I also started watching This is Us. I've only watched a few episodes so far and I like it but don't love it. I didn't get much reading done. I finished one graphic novel. I had hoped to read more. I've been spending too much time on my phone reading depressing news and watching more TV lately.
Yesterday at the library I had 14 people show up to watch The Girl on the Train. Seventeen people signed up but I usually have a few that don't attend after registering. I was still happy with the turnout because for weeks only two people were signed up. Tomorrow is my next program, a coloring night. Only eight signed up which is down from my attendance last year. I've heard that the popularity of the coloring trend is dying down. On Tuesday I have my book group meetings. This is the first time since July that I'll have two book groups as one of my coworkers temporarily ran the afternoon group for me from August through November. I wish I could have given it to her permanently as it just gets to be too much for me. This afternoon I plan to look for some ideas for our March books.
I am sad but not surprised to see the snow is back. Our parking lot at work was so icy yesterday morning that I felt like a penguin trying to slowly make my way in without falling. My director called someone to come and ice the lot so it wasn't bad by the time we opened for the day. So far we've been lucky this winter without much snow though there has been some ice. I just wish it was spring already! This week we'll hear from Puxsutawney Phil. Hopefully he won't see his shadow :)
Last week on my blog:
My Favorite Books of 2016 (post)
Born a Crime by Trevor Noah (review)
March: Book One by John Lewis
Little Women by Louisa May Alcott (reread)
As much as I loved the book when I first read it, this reread is going very slowly. I doubt I'll have it done by my book group meeting on Tuesday. I think part of the problem is that there are so many other books I'd rather read as well as a review book I have to read soon.
Currently listening to:
Starflight by Melissa Landers (reread)
On my TBR pile:
The Romance Reader's Guide to Life by Sharon Pywell
