This was a pretty decent week. I did have some late nights due to rehearsals, but overall things were good. Our library staff concert rocked on Friday, and I had a lot of fun playing with Dewey and the Decimals! My coworker’s book collecting class was awesome as well.
I have another busy week ahead of me, with a big all-library staff meeting and a breakfast at a local school to meet my KeyPal (email penpal). I know she’s going to be awesome!
I actually finished all three of the books I set out to finish last week! And Goodreads tells me that I’m right on track with my 150 books reading goal. I’m going to read some middle grade/children’s books to try to get ahead. Those totally count
I’ve also made the decision to make February a no-library-checkouts month. I’ve been neglecting my NetGalley, review, and ARC books because of the crushing weight of library due dates. I’m going to return the library books I haven’t finished, and won’t check out any new books. If a hold comes in, I’ll check that out, because I have to wait forever for them, but I won’t make a big effort to place more holds. I really need to whittle down my reading pile that I have at home, and then I’ll be able to give away some of the cool ARCs I got at Midwinter!
Continuing to read:
Why Can’t Elephants Jump?
I’ve found that this book is best read in small chunks. It would make a great bathroom reader, if you do that when you’re in there.
The Ask and the Answer by Patrick Ness (audiobook)
11/22/63 by Stephen King (waiting…)
Inheritance by Christopher Paolini (going back to the library untouched, and don’t know when I’ll ever finish this)
What are your reading plans this week?
