Good morning! Let’s gather around with our caffeinated beverages to chat about our weeks, our books, and our perspectives. Join our host at Bookishly Boisterous to see what others are sharing.
Good morning, Blog World! Let’s grab some coffee and chat. What a week so far. Yesterday, I had meals in the dining room all day! On alternate days, this plan will continue, with one person at a table, six feet away from the next one…but we can still talk! That works. I also liked that I could ask for a special item not on the menu, and I got it! They were in a good mood yesterday. LOL
- On a dark note, what a horrendous week out in the world, with racism continuing to rear its head, and those “in charge” making all the wrong moves!
- I am trying to calm myself with books and blogging. And rearranging things, like these shelves.
- Today was my post for Books from the Backlog, which I have been enjoying. Since I started participating, I’ve rediscovered and read a handful of books I had forgotten about.
- I am currently reading one of the books I found a few weeks ago: A Piece of the World, by Christina Baker Kline. So far, so good.
- Also this week, I read and reviewed another backlog book: After Anna, by Alex Lake.
- On Monday, I read and reviewed The Dilemma, by B.A. Paris, the ARC of a book being released on 6/30/20.
- Last week, I received a book for reread, along with the DVD to watch. I hope to settle in with the movie this weekend: In Her Shoes is a fun movie that I once owned…and had to replace.
- I am missing my family members…sigh. Even though we are slowly moving out and about (within the community here), the outside world remains “out there.” But when I notice the places opening up and moving out, and see that infections are on the rise, I curb my impatience…and settle in with my books and movies.
- Meanwhile, I look at this photo of family members gathered together at Thanksgiving. The last time we were all together.
How are the rest of you handling the world as we know it now? Staying safe, I hope. Enjoy your books and your home. I am, as usual, rearranging things.
