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.
Another week that seemed to go by too fast. Here we are nearing the end of August, and with fall on the cusp. I would love the kind of fall we used to enjoy, but those days are not in the cards for us. Moving along a day at a time is the best we can do.
I only read two books this week. I had read half of a book that I spent too much time on before DNF-ing it; I went on to read the two books that I enjoyed and reviewed, but I was still reading the second one today. Spending too much time on a book that I wasn’t loving is something I need to correct.
I did find myself drawn more to Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime; I got caught up bingeing a show that I had noticed in the past but had never watched: Designated Survivor, a political show starring Kiefer Sutherland. I am almost finished with it, and loving it.
I also watched the Democratic Convention this week…and I felt energized!
Since nobody in the residence has tested “positive” for two weeks, we were allowed to return to the dining room today. The schedule will be every other day, and we’ll see how long it lasts this time!
Now let’s grab some coffee and take a closer look at my week.
LAST WEEK ON THE BLOGS:
Empty physical mailbox…but I downloaded an ARC from NetGalley and three new e-books.

When She Was Good, by Michael Robotham
CURRENTLY READING: He Started It, by Samantha Downing
That was my week. I spent a lot of time in my apartment, reading, blogging, binge-watching shows…and sipping coffee. And photographing my surroundings, like my entry way with coffee on the table, on the left, and the long view that shows the cupboard, the table with shelves of unread print books beneath, and my pottery mail receptacle on the table in the front.
