Planning for Summer Reading | Weekly Snapshot

Here we are - almost at the halfway point of the year. I still remember starting the year with so many plans, and then came a vicious virus to stump everyone. I'm reaching that point where I'm beginning to miss the life that was, while also feeling very unsure about the life that will be.

Last WeekJust another week around here - many more to come, I guess. Last week, a few of the places we frequented pre-virus have reached out saying that they are reopening.

Teaser Tuesdays -- Feb 09, 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:

~ Pg. 53, The Help by Kathryn Stockett.

I see this book everywhere but for some reason remain uninterested. Maybe it's overexposure. Good teaser though.
