Yesterday marked the end of the first Thankfully Reading Weekend. I was thankful to have the days off, but I didn't get quite the amount of reading in that I had hoped to. On the other hand, I had a relaxed and stress-free weekend, and that counts for a lot!
Audiobooks: I finished the remaining 7 hours of An Echo in the Bone by Diana Gabaldon and started Sweeping up Glass by Carolyn Wall. Wow, Glass has swept me up (okay, lame, I admit), and I'll be highlighting it on Thursday if I haven't finished by then.
Print books: I finished Meet the Austins by Madeleine L'Engle and The Magykal Papers by Angie Sage. I almost finished The House on Tradd Street by Karen White.
The good news is that I can put three half-read books to rest and get the reviews written this week. The bad news is that I didn't spend the hours I thought I would in reading. More good news is that I took a long walk outside on Saturday and Sunday afternoons.
Hope everyone had a great weekend. I've enjoyed reading the Thankfully Reading Weekend posts that were linked up at the Book Blog Social Club. I also want to thank co-hosts Jenn of Jenn's Bookshelves and Jen of Devourer of Books for coming up with the idea and for their help.
I'd like to make a small plug for the Book Blog Social Club. If you have a community event in mind and need a place to host it, check with the owners to see if the blog is available. According to the first post on the blog:
The Book Blog Social Club is quite simply what it states! It's a place for book bloggers to socialize and celebrate major life events.
