Hello August, here we come | Weekly Snapshot

It's freaking August already! Of 2021.  Life I know how summer usually means a busy time for most people. It wasn't so much for me - my kids are still too little and we had some fun this summer but didn't brave outside a whole lot (maybe next year). And still, I am ready for summer to end. For one thing, stuff does slow down a little during rest of the year, and by stuff, I mean work mostly. And on the other hand, I'm ready for real school to start, so that I don't feel bad that my kids are wasting their brains, LOL.  I got to catchup with life this week and that means a great deal. There were a million things eating my brain all the time, distracting me from other things, so it was good to check off a bunch of things from my list. There's still more but for now, I'm in a good place (until it creeps up again of course).  This and next week, we are going to be busy with back-to-school stuff. Since my daughter is moving to the public school this year (first gr

Yet another Monday! (March 21, 2011)


It's Monday! What are you reading this week?

Sheila @ One Persons Journey through a world of Books wants to know what we're reading. I'm only too happy to oblige!


It's been a slow week of reading. I guess I just had too much going on, but I hope to make something out of the last 10 days of the third month of the year that just started and is already a quarter way through!

Books completed in the last week
-  The Beauty of Humanity Movement by Camilla Gibb: Nice wonderful look at the Vietnamese culture!
-  The Freedom Writers Diary by Erin Gruwell: I loved the movie and that's what prompted me to pick this book. What a truly moving book!

News from over my blog
Giveaway
-  Today's the last day to enter my giveaway of Elisa Lorello's books - Faking It and its sequel, Ordinary World.

Leif Reads!
Reviews up!
My coming weekend's going to be busy and book-free, so I hope I have five days of good reading before that.

Miss Entropia and the Adam BombMiss Entropia and the Adam Bomb by George Rabasa: I've been eager to read this book ever since I first heard of it. That cover makes me think of some kind of explosion - red and bright! I can't wait to start it!
The Four Ms. BradwellsThe Four Ms. Bradwells by Meg Waite Clayton: I've read many rave reviews of Clayton's The Wednesday Sisters, that I have my expectations high up for this book. Sadly, it's not holding my interest for more than half an hour at a time. It's taking me some time to get used to the writing - which is beautiful but is still very digressive. I'm only 40 pages in so it's too early to say anything yet!

I hope so, though it doesn't seem to look like. Still, I'm all for a try!

I've been seeing The Beauty of Humanity around a lot, but it does sound good.

I'm glad I read it before seeing it around much. But it would still have been a good read.
