**Mailbox Monday is hosted at the home site: Mailbox Monday.
And let’s join Kathryn, our leader in It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?, at Book Date.
My week was chaotic and productive at the same time. I had finished my first book on Monday, eager to write a review and start on the next one. But best laid plans and all…that day was the beginning of the end of those good plans. In the midst of my frenzied activity, my laptop died. But I bought a new one and took it to the Geek Squad for setup and data transfer. All good, right? Not so good. Two days later it was still not finished, and I was in a long line at the DMV for my DL renewal and REAL ID completion. I came through that within two hours, and successfully, but then that night, my temporary bridge fell out when I wasn’t even chewing on that side! The next morning, I headed to the dentist, while regularly checking on the status of my new laptop. Meanwhile, I finished reading book #2.
Thursday night I got my laptop! Before I went to sleep, I started learning how to navigate it, and wrote one review. On Friday, I wrote another one…and two blog posts. So..a minimal amount of progress, but I felt exultant that I had come through the week in one piece. Sort of.
So…let’s take a closer look…and grab some coffee.
LAST WEEK ON THE BLOGS:
INCOMING BOOKS: (Titles/Covers Linked to Amazon)
Empty mailbox…but I downloaded two e-books.
A Well-Behaved Woman (e-book), by Therese Anne Fowler
Shell Game (e-book),(A V.I. Warshawski Novel) by Sara Paretsky
I’m currently reading In Pieces, by Sally Field: an American icon tells her story for the first time, and in her own gorgeous words—about a challenging and lonely childhood, the craft that helped her find her voice, and a powerful emotional legacy that shaped her journey as a daughter and a mother.
Day of the Dead (e-book), by Nicci French
That was my rather turbulent week, ending on a more serene note. What did your week look like? Before the week turned completely chaotic, I relaxed with this pumpkin cheesecake pie. Yes, I had to have it again.
