In mood for a vacation | Weekly Snapshot

Yet another week has gone by with no end in sight for the pandemic. Being able to distinguish weeks became a challenge months ago, so no surprises there. But the weather is getting colder and winter is coming (hopefully not Martin's winter - we had enough of that this year already). I used to love winter, I used to look forward to it. But for the past few years, it has tended to be a very gloomy season. I'm usually just looking forward to it ending. So, this year, it's going to be harder to get through the season, especially since we are all still mostly at home. Mind you, I don't mind the restrictions as they do have a useful purpose, but wish more people followed them well and that we had done a better job when the weather was warmer to keep the virus at bay so that it didn't have to last this long. But that argument probably won't stick anyways, as many countries are now facing second waves. At the end of the day, we really need a vaccine but I hope that isn…

Teaser Tuesdays -- Feb 02, 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.


So, Rainwater won the battle of the books today! I managed to convince myself that if I didn't get to Not my Daughter, I can still place it on hold and read some other time, hopefully when all my holds do not come together. (Speaking of holds, I have 3 new holds available now. So I doubt there will ever be a situation when all my holds cease to come together)

Interesting teaser! Enjoy!

I just think you're lucky that you're allowed to place holds on so many books. My library limits me to three. Three! Luckily, my hubby doesn't use his card too much, so I can put three more on his, but that still feels like a ridiculously low number.

Diane, I loved it too!

Jennifer, I can put only 8, but yeah, 3 sucks! 6, too. I guess for people like me, anything above 5 is too much, considering all my holds tend to come together! Maybe its the library's way of making us feel less guilty, in the event we can't read a book. ;-)
