The Sunday Post ~ 5/3/15

The Sunday Post

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @

Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

~this meme was inspired in part by ~ In My Mailbox~

It’s a chance to share News. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.

I am sooo looking forward to a day of rest and relaxation and of course the best “R” word – READING! My kiddos have kept me very busy this week! I have two playing baseball right now, and that has consumed our nights and weekends. This week will probably be more of the same. We’ll be helping a couple friends move during the day.

If you’re curious as to why I read so many books at once…Some I’m keeping pace with a book club, some I read a little aloud daily to my kids, some I just haven’t gotten into yet but I try to at least read a chapter a day. I really don’t like to DNF a book. I think it’s an OCD thing????

That sums up my progress for last week, and lets you know a little of what I have planned for the week. I’d love to hear how things are in your book world!!

Happy Reading,

    • Yes, it can be a lot of fun! Unfortunately I didn’t get my day of rest Sunday, and I was so exhausted I didn’t take long to fall asleep last night, so very little reading was accomplished, unfortunately.


  1. 25 books ahead of schedule – that’s pretty impressive!!! I haven’t heard of some of the books on your list so might check them out. Am a bit Pride & Prejudice fan though!


    • Thanks! This is the first time I’ve been this far ahead on my goodreads goal. I LOVE Pride & Prejudice. I’ve read it multiple times. I have to confess that Emma is my favorite Austen book, though.


  2. Children do know how to keep us busy, don’t they ? And when they grow old, parents do too… I’m afraid the only books I know (and have read) among those you listed are Jane Austen’s and Victor Hugo’s. Try to get some rest and take care 😉


    • LOL! Yes, my mom already adds to my plate, and she’s still in her 50’s. I’m rereading Pride and Prejudice for a book club. I’ve read it a few times. Emma is my favorite Jane Austen, though.


    • I tend to read till about 2 every morning. Some I read during the day aloud to my kids. I’m glad I’m not the only one that reads a lot all at once. My friends are always asking me how I keep them straight in my head. I’ve never struggled with that, though. Sometimes I’ll mix up plots between two books, but it’ll be later after I’ve already read them. I just equate it to the fact that most people manage to watch more than one TV series, and I’m sure they don’t mix them up. 🙂
