I spent last week settling into increased responsibilities at work. It was nice to finally have a little breathing room to catch up! I picked up some books from a nonprofit I volunteer for occasionally, The POP Project, and on Saturday I delivered them to the community resource center in the little town where I grew up. Those books should make it into the hands of people who don’t have the means to buy books for themselves. Then my husband, my mom, and I went to the fair, where we ate entirely too many things that are bad for us. I look forward to an apple dumpling from the same little booth every year.
Nothing. I started a review of Shantaram but it started getting as long as the book. I scrapped it and never quite got around to starting over.
Also nothing, although that should change before I go to bed tonight.
The Hero and the Crown by Robin McKinley
Rome, 1960: The Olympics that Changed the World by David Maraniss
My mom has been radically de-cluttering her house over the past month or so and a lot of old books that belonged to my sister and me have found their way to my house. Some have already been donated to the library or The POP Project, but there are quite a few more I want to re-read before I give them away and a lot I want to re-read before I place them on my shelves. I may start working on some of those.
What are you reading this week?
