Weekly Update at Introverted Reader

Welcome to my weekly blog update for April 3, 2016!

Holy smokes. I didn’t mean to take such a long break! The last time I posted was on February 21 but I have read quite a bit since then. I’m so brain-dead by the time I get home from work, I only want to veg out, which means either reading or tv. No staring at the computer and writing my own words. I went to San Francisco for a meeting one weekend in March. Usually I’m so busy at these things that I don’t have time to explore. This time I flew across the country and stayed away for 3 days for a 5-hour meeting. Lots of time to play, even factoring in the two days of travel! I’ve visited the city before but my co-worker hadn’t so we took a cruise of the bay and a double-decker bus tour of the downtown area. It was a nice trip!

  1. Wow, a great trip! I love San Francisco, and even though it's only three hours away from me, I haven't been there in a while. I lived there back in the 60s…memories! LOL.

    You read a lot, too. I loved Magnolia Wednesdays, one of my first books by this author. I also enjoyed Save the Date.

    Thanks for sharing…welcome back!

  2. Sounds like a fun trip! How did you like The Cats of Tanglewood Forest? I read that one a couple years ago and liked it (I'm a Charles vess fan anyway). And As You Wish- I really want to read that. 🙂
