A library haul after months | Notes from my Reading

Despite so much going on over here between work, house projects, yard work, and just daily living challenges in this pandemic era, I've been able to squeeze in time to read as well, which I'm thankful for, because the news has been abysmal these past few weeks for various reasons and I'm continually worrying about where humanity is headed, even more so than I did before.

A library haul after months...My biggest highlight in books this past week was that the library opened for holds pickup. I'd been checking their website every week to find if next week was going to be the week it opened. So when the notice finally came through last week, I was beyond thrilled. I was also very unsure what books to request from the library since I had gotten very used to reading online.

Teaser Tuesdays -- Jan 19, 2010



Teaser Tuesdays

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
Grab your current read
Open to a random page
Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page.

He had begun to dread following her.

~ Pg. 5, Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffenegger.

I've wanted to read Her Fearful Symmetry for so long! I bought it, but I haven't opened it yet due to my commitments to reviews I've already made. Soon, though, I hope. I was crazy about The Time Traveler's Wife.

dolcebelleza, I was crazy about TTTW too, and for that reason I am reading this, in spite of the not-so-good comments. I really want to see how I'll find it.
