This Spring-like week | Weekly Snapshot

After weeks of near-zero (Fahrenheit) temperatures and so much snow (more than we have ever received in years), we are now in the 50s and it's looking that way for all of next week, woo hoo! Life We seem to have settled into a routine around here. Work has calmed down a bit as well, so you'd think that all this means I should be reading more or dabble in things that sound fun. Sadly no. While I still much relish being able to work from home and having kids safe in school, it would be nice to be able to socialize more with no worry of the virus. Yesterday, we all went for a long walk out in the beautiful weather. On our way, we passed by the park we spent so much time in last year but didn't venture inside because there were so many people in there. I look forward to the day we don't need to do that. Spring break is coming soon and we are seriously considering safe vacation options. We don't have any grand ideas at the moment but we'll be thinking about it more.

This meme is hosted by Marcia @ The Printed Page. It is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week (checked out library books don’t count, eBooks & audio books do).

I had a good week with four review books on my doorstep.


  1. Fireworks over Toccoa by Jeffrey Stepakoff (from St. Martin's Press)
  2. The Overnight Socialite by Bridie Clark (from FSB)
  3. The Lumby Lines by Gail Fraser (from FSB)
  4. Glorious by Bernice L. McFadden (from Akashic Books)
See what others have bought over the last week!

I haven't read any of your new books, but I'm hoping you enjoy them. It is always such a nice surprise to open one of the padded envelopes :)
