Sunday Post: Feb 9

February 9, 2014 2014, Sunday Post 11

rp_sundaypostmeme13.jpgThe Sunday Post is a meme hosted by Kimba at Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

I like this meme because it gives me an opportunity to take a look back at last week and forward to next week in both my personal life and my blog and book life! I also like to see what other people are doing and what books everyone is reading. This is a great meme to participate in every week and I thank Kim for hosting it!

Last Week

Around the house

My husband arrived home Friday in time to watch the opening ceremonies for the Olympics. We both thought the ceremonies were well done. The 11 year old girl who performed the aerial acrobatics was really something to see. We also enjoyed the technology with all the projectors and the music and ballet. On Saturday we watched some ice skating, skiing and hockey. The mountains are certainly spectacular.

We also explored a little more in southern Maryland along the Potomac. Beautiful sunset.


I added a book review index page listing the reviews I’ve done by author.

What I’m reading or listening to:

Blood Rites by Jim Butcher (audiobook)

Ashes of Honor by Seanan McGuire (ebook)

What I read

Whispers Under Ground by Ben Aaronovitch

E-books bought

Many books again!

Royal Blood by Rhys Bowen

Disenchanted & Co. by Lynn Viehl

Broken Homes by Ben Aaronovitch

Bones of the Fair by Andrea K. Hst

Gilded by Christina Farley

A Perfect Blood by Kim Harrison

I discovered a site called LibriVox. LibriVox is a site with public domain audiobooks to download for free. The books are read by volunteers so the quality will vary! I haven’t checked out LibriVox yet, but it sounds intriguing. Book Riot has a post about the site which offers tips on using LibriVox.

Angelfall by Susan Ee

A Serpent’s Tooth by Craig Johnson

Next Week

Around the house

My son starts a new job, but is taking two weeks off in-between the two jobs so he may come visit for a day next week. That will be fun! I also plan to watch more Olympics, read more and send cards and letters.

      Thanks, Peggy. We’re proud of our son and he’s really excited about the new job.

      We always watched the Olympics when I was a child. So much fun and lots of memories. I wish I could purchase some more time for reading!

      I had less than a year’s worth of reviews to set up, Nathan, so I decided now would be the best time to get this done. I did it while listening to an audio book since I didn’t have to think too much! That made the time pass faster!
