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. Still, I had a few requested when they called me to schedule a one-hour window for pickup. I did request a ton of books after that though, so I expect a bigger bag this week.

I am currently reading

The Chopin ManuscriptThe Chopin Manuscript by Jeffery Deaver (Audio book): I started this one last week. It's getting interesting, but unfortunately, I'm not getting much time to listen to it.

My reading plans for the next week

RainwaterRainwater by Sandra Brown: This one is due back in the library this Friday (one of the victims of my simultaneous holds coming together). I just might read this, I really want to, but I'll be choosing between this one and the book below!



Not my DaughterNot my Daughter by Barbara Delinsky: I've read a lot of good reviews about this book over the last week, that I'm really keen to read this one. What do you do, when you have to choose between two books you want to read? Try to read both, right? Probably give everything else second importance only? ::shudder::
Check out what others are reading here!

City of Bones is one I have been curious about. A girl in my book club is flying through these reads and says they are fantastic.

Have a great reading week!

I'll be looking forward to your review of City of Bones.

I came across The Chopin Manuscript somewhere, and it sounds intriguing. I can't wait to see what you think of that one either.

Enjoy your books!

bermudaonion, I wish I read even more! I'm never satisfied! ;-)

dArLyN, I did! I loved Rainwater!

Sheila, City of Bones was good! I think you should read it!

Lynne, I'll be reviewing Say you're one of them soon. But I wasn't too impressed by it!

Juju, thanks! :)

Cat, I had to drop Not my daughter! :-(

Jennifer G, I hope I finish The Chopin Manuscript soon! Being an audio book, I struggle to find time to listen to it.

Rachelle, I'll be reviewing it soon!
