Pandemic-fatigue | Weekly Snapshot

It got busy this week! Lots going on at home, work, and otherwise as well.  Life My daughter's school decided to close on Friday, along with several other schools in the area, with some being closed from Thursday. Not enough staff. The school had been on a mask mandate since the beginning of the pandemic, dropping it only for one week when the pandemic had appeared to have stabilized last year. And yet, they dropped the mandate completely at the beginning of this year, when cases were exponentially rising, only to bring it back again starting next week. I've gone from being very annoyed to angry to feeling fatigue in these first two weeks already. I won't lie - we all mask around here and try to avoid going where we don't have a need to be in, and still, we are not taking anything close to the extreme precaution we all took at the beginning of the pandemic. I cannot and don't want to keep my kids home - I have at least that much faith in the schools' precautions

This meme is hosted by Marcia @ The Printed Page. It is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week (checked out library books don’t count, eBooks & audio books do).

I've decided to do this meme only once a month. I did post once in the second week of January, which can be found here. In addition, I received the below books this month:




  1. Going with Gabriel by John Grisham (Goodreads FirstReads program)
  2. The Lace Reader by Brunonia Barry (Giveaway @ A Bookish Way of Life)
  3. Jumping off Swings by Jo Knowles (Giveaway @ A Bookish Way of Life)
See what others have bought over the last week!
