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.

Happy Labor day weekend to all who celebrate it and happy weekend to the rest of the world.

(PS: Please don't publish too many posts until I am back.)

It sure is. My vacations are usually hectic, since we plan a lot for a short time, but this time, we had 4-5 hours in the evenings free.
