Sunday Salon - What a week!
It was indeed a busy week for me, as I had to get my library account basically divested of any remaining materials that I had on hand and return them and in fact I have 2 materials checked out between the three library accounts I have (one I haven't had books out from in years) and the materials that I do have are from the same library (there is a reason for this and you will understand why in a couple of weeks). And this meant a lot of reading and not putting up blog posts, although somehow I managed to put up quite a few in the meantime (don't know how that happened).
One was an ebook that was nearing the end of my accessibility and the others were physical library materials that needed to be returned (one audiobook and 2 books) by the middle of the week, hence I was able to get most of what I wanted to get done, which was a miracle cause I was reading one of them until basically the bitter end and managed to finish it well before I left (it also meant for an early library drop-off the next morning due to the fact that I didn't have a car until late the previous night and made me a bit anxious as a result).
Basically it was a pretty good week of reading and with the library materials out of the way, I was able to start up on my some of my ebooks that have been neglected over the past few weeks and was able to start them. I will start on some paper books in the next day or two, as one is a bookclub book (Sarah's Key) and the other is a library book (can't recall the title) and a couple are for readalongs that I have either neglected to start (East of Eden) or just didn't start (The Great Gatsby; should be easily completed as I am about half-way done) and the other physical book I brought I can't recall why I brought it along in the first place.
Anyways, I digress. And yes, I did have a bit of a meltdown the other day, but I am trying to move on and just let people comment as they wish to.
