Wrapping up January | Weekly Snapshot

Last week went much better than I dared hope it would be. I managed to catch some parts of the Presidential Inauguration and the evening program, and just the realization that the administration is really, truly, definitively changing has just sunk in, I think. I haven't spent more than about 5 minutes each day on the news (didn't feel the need to) and I hope to keep it that way for as long as possible. Life Yep, another busy work week. I know I hoped for a lighter work week, but who am I kidding. Work has been a different kind of busy each week this whole month and it will be nothing different this coming week. I just hope to figure out how to get my lunch hour freed up and use it to recharge. Not much happened in life this week - kids are loving being back at school, and I am loving my uninterrupted time, something that was only a luxury for much of last year.  Reading Even if life was busy this week, I did read quite a bit. I'm slowly reading So You Want To Talk About Ra

Look at what just arrived! - May 31, 2010

mailboxmonday 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).

Five books this week. Plus thanks to Armchair BEA, I won/got 9 other ARCs. Woohoo!


  1. Summer at Tiffany by Marjorie Hart from Harper Collins, courtesy of TLC Book Tours. (This is a memoir about two girls who are the first girls to work at Tiffany, written from the perspective of one of them. A real feel-good book)
  2. After loving The Lumby Lines, I received the remaining four books in the series from FSB Associates - Stealing Lumby, Lumby's Bounty, The Promise of Lumby and Lumby on the Air. You can imagine my excitement when I got the full set!

What do you think of any of these books?

I think they look beautiful!

I just bought Lumby Lines a few weeks ago based on several favorable blogger reviews. I hope to read it sometime this summer.

Hi,

I just received Lumby on the Air as well. I had no idea that it was part of a series. Hope you enjoy them all. Here's my mailbox.
I really want to read The Lumby books. They seem like a series I could enjoy! Summer at Tiffany sounds like a good one too. Enjoy all your new reads!

I've got all those Lumby books too...and I really need to read at least the first one in the series! I love the covers :) And I got lucky and picked up a copy of Summer at Tiffanys at the BEA, so looks like we can exchange views on that one too :)
