Pandemic-fatigue | Weekly Snapshot

It got busy this week! Lots going on at home, work, and otherwise as well.  Life My daughter's school decided to close on Friday, along with several other schools in the area, with some being closed from Thursday. Not enough staff. The school had been on a mask mandate since the beginning of the pandemic, dropping it only for one week when the pandemic had appeared to have stabilized last year. And yet, they dropped the mandate completely at the beginning of this year, when cases were exponentially rising, only to bring it back again starting next week. I've gone from being very annoyed to angry to feeling fatigue in these first two weeks already. I won't lie - we all mask around here and try to avoid going where we don't have a need to be in, and still, we are not taking anything close to the extreme precaution we all took at the beginning of the pandemic. I cannot and don't want to keep my kids home - I have at least that much faith in the schools' precautions

It's Monday! What are you reading? -- October 11, 2010


It's Monday! What are you reading this week?
This is a weekly event initially hosted by J. Kaye at J. Kaye's Book Blog, now by Sheila @ One Persons Journey through a world of Books, to celebrate what you are reading for the week as well as books completed the previous week.

Books completed
-  Moloka'i by Alan Brennert
-  Russell Wiley is Out to Lunch by Richard Hine

News from over here
This past week, most of the news was around the readathon on Saturday. While I didn't get to read much, I did manage to make some significant progress on a chunkster. This week, I also posted two reviews:
-  The Game-On! Diet by Krista Vernoff and Az Ferguson
-  Moloka'i by Alan Brennert

Books on my nightstand
Although, right now I am in the middle of three books, in a sense, I am also between books, as I try to figure out which book to start with next, while I read the other books on the side.

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling: It's been a long time since I picked this one up. I keep picking it and putting it aside because other more urgent reads keep calling me. This week, I'm hoping to sit and read this because I'm never going to be able to find time anyways.
Panopticon by David Bajo: Having requested this one from NetGalley, I plan to pick this one sometime later this week. I don't have much clue about this book, and the reviews have been mostly mixed. Still, it's from Unbridled Books, and since I've loved some of their other titles, I really want to try this one.

I'm only familiar with Harry Potter out of your books listed, hope you enjoy your reads.
a Harry Potter week! I am so excited for the upcoming movie...only a month away!

p.s. you, like me, turned off the word verification during the read-a-thon and haven't turned it back on yet. I'll go do mine now.
I've been seeing "mentions" of the Game-On Diet. It sounds like a great motivator.

Hope you enjoy your books.

Here's my Monday:

That last book really caught my attention. The one you received from Unbridled books. I've never heard of Panocop.... I think of something related to a camera or movie???? Can't wait to read your review.
