A library haul after months | Notes from my Reading

Despite so much going on over here between work, house projects, yard work, and just daily living challenges in this pandemic era, I've been able to squeeze in time to read as well, which I'm thankful for, because the news has been abysmal these past few weeks for various reasons and I'm continually worrying about where humanity is headed, even more so than I did before.

A library haul after months...My biggest highlight in books this past week was that the library opened for holds pickup. I'd been checking their website every week to find if next week was going to be the week it opened. So when the notice finally came through last week, I was beyond thrilled. I was also very unsure what books to request from the library since I had gotten very used to reading online.

Books on my nightstand

The Passage by Justin Cronin: Ever so slowly, I am moving through this book. I wish I could finish this sooner, but reading the same book for so long makes me miserable.
Stealing Lumby by Gail Fraser: The first Lumby book, Lumby Lines, was a really easy and cozy read that I enjoyed more than I expected to. After a long time, I picked up the second Lumby book, Stealing Lumby, and this book has the same effect on me!
The Game On! Diet by Krista Vernoff and Az Ferguson: Technically, I should be done with this book by now, since I'm doing this game this month. But I still have a couple of the less important chapters to go.

I get frustrated when a book takes so long to finish too so I totally understand. You need to get the audio version to listen to in your car!

I haven't started on some of my chunksters because I have so much catching up to do and if I get bogged down in a humungous book I won't accomplish anything LOL

The Passage is supposed to be worth the time though :-)
Have a great week and happy reading!

I'm looking forward to The Passage but I understand getting behind on everything else during a big book.
