Some 'firsts' in this new-normal world | Weekly Snapshot

I almost didn't make it here today! It's been an insanely busy week that's going to continue into today. Life This week has been a combination of busy at work and busy at home. The kids did not have school on Monday, which is also typically my busiest day at work. So when Monday ended, I felt as if I sucked at both life and work. The rest of the week was better - at least I was able to keep work and life separate.  This weekend just happens to be one of those when I have so much to do - thanks to the many tasks and chores deferred from previous days/weekends. We were getting quotes for some home improvement projects, had to start prepping rooms for my parents' arrival next month (mainly because I still haven't moved my daughter's online school materials out of the room from the Fall school year), and do lots of seasonal shopping. If it weren't going to be constantly raining this entire weekend, I would be prepping my garden beds as well, but now that needs t

Library Loot - Feb 03, 2010



Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Eva @ A Striped Armchair and Marg @ Reading Adventures that encourages bloggers to share the books they’ve checked out from the library. If you’d like to participate, just write up your post-feel free to steal the button-and link it using the Mr. Linky any time during the week. And of course check out what other participants are getting from their libraries!

I'm guilty, yet again! Of going off to the library before reading the books I borrowed previously! And I'm off this weekend to pick more, since 3 holds just came through yesterday! We really should have had 48 hours in a day rather than the measly 24 hours, which just swim away way too fast! Apparently, we sleep 8 hours, and work 8 hours, then where are the remaining 8 hours?

I digress!

Anyways, this is what I picked last weekend:



  1. Precious by Sapphire. I was actually looking for Push, but my library only had the movie-tie-in edition. Does any one know if there's a difference between the two? I had previously read the first chapter, so I couldn't spot any differences. I hope it's the same as the original!
  2. White Oleander by Janet Fitch. I'm reading this book with Cheryl @ The Books I Read, for a Pen-Pal read in a Goodreads group. So I'm pretty excited about starting this!
What do you think of any of these books?

I think the movie tie-in edition is the same as Push - they're just trying to market of the movie's publicity. I've read both of those books and enjoyed them!
I have not read Precious, but did read White Oleander. I thought it was good, but depressing :(

I haven't read either of these - sounds as if they might be tearjerkers. Hope you enjoy them.:)

Kathy, thanks for clearing that one!

Diane, I did hear it's depressing, so I want to balance it with light reads before and after it! Hope it works! :)

Juju, I guess I better!

Michelle, can't wait to hear what you think of it!

Cat, thanks! :)
