**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.
This past week has been exhausting, and I’m not sure why. It has been warmer outside, and I’ve had to use the air conditioning, which is not the best unit I’ve ever had…LOL. It is also loud! Despite these issues, I managed to finish reading and reviewing two books, one of which was an ARC that wasn’t supposed to be released until May 19, but suddenly appeared on the Amazon page on 5/5. Luckily it was a good book that kept me engaged throughout, as did my second book. I also spent time reading a hardcover book that is slow going, so I’m picking it up and spending bits of time on it. I’m about halfway finished.
I’ve spent more time on movies and shows online. New episodes of The Good Fight, continuing episodes of Mrs. America, and I started Season II of Dead to Me on Netflix. Today I plan to begin I Know This Much Is True on Prime, based on Wally Lamb’s book.
Last night I went to bed at 7:00 p.m.! Just to lie there and watch TV for a while, and I finally slept periodically, turning off the TV at 11:30. Up at 4:30 today!
So…now what? I think I’ll continue reading the hardcover book today, as I’m eager to finally finish it…and I have some e-books that are calling out to me, both fiction and nonfiction. I have discovered that my e-books go faster and more smoothly…and I think I like holding the Kindle more than a physical book. That was surprising to me, but I’ve been realizing this for a while.
Let’s grab some coffee. I’m sitting right here at my computer, in the chair you see in the photo, and we can take a closer look at my week.
LAST WEEK ON THE BLOGS:
Empty mailbox! I did download two e-books.
A Good Marriage, by Kimberly McCreight
Killer Deadline, by Lauren Carr
I have been periodically reading The Girl in White Gloves, by Kerri Maher…I hope to finish it eventually.
Then I will grab another e-book or two. I have my eye on this memoir by Jennifer Weiner: Hungry Heart. It has been on my Kindle for a while (since October 2016!), and it will count for my nonfiction challenge.
So…that was my week. Not a lot of fun or excitement, but then again, we’re still on lockdown. Even though parts of the state and this city will slowly reopen, I am still restricted due to being in senior residential living. However, I am grateful not to have to make that decision on my own.
I do miss my granddaughter Fiona…but she regularly sends updated photos, like this one. I like how she plays around with hair color.
And to start off Mother’s Day weekend with something beautiful, here’s what Fiona and her mother sent me today:
