It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? - 05/13/19

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? a place to meet up and share what you have been, and are about to be reading over the week. It’s a great post to organize yourself. It’s an opportunity to visit and comment and er… add to your groaning TBR pile! So welcome in everyone. This meme started on J Kaye’s blog and then was hosted by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn here at The Book Date.

Bookish and Not-So-Bookish Thoughts

Bookish and Not-So-Bookish Thoughts is a weekly blogging event hosted by Bookishly Boisterous. It allows book bloggers (and not so bookish bloggers) to write about pretty much anything, bookish or otherwise.

1. I was reading along in Jodi Picoult's Change of Heart and, after realizing I had already read it, a library hold that I have been waiting on for quite a while finally opened to me. So I put Jodi aside and joined Reese for a quick read! Entertaining so far.

2. We were thrilled to get a full price offer on our condo. And the buyer accepted it despite a few small issues the inspector found. Nothing major, so we must have done a good job prepping it. Now we just await the P&S and final closing.

2. R.I.P. Rachel Held Evans.

3. Saturday is Commencement at work. The seniors are excited to graduate. The faculty are thrilled summer is finally here. And the staff...we just continue working hard preparing for next fall. Next time you're buying a present for your child's teacher, buy an extra one for the office secretary or the janitor or the assistant principal. Seriously, there are no months off for the behind-the-scenes folks. And we. work. hard.

4. Carpel tunnel update. I'm headed to the hand surgeon tomorrow. Thinking they will try cortisone first, we'll see. I've been wearing a wrist brace for weeks and it has helped, but not solved the problem totally. So, at least there's that.

5. Tony Schwartz, the ghostwriter for Donald Trump's The Art of the Deal, states he wants the book taken out of print, or at minimum recategorized as fiction, after a report in The New York Times that Trump lost over a billion dollars between 1985 and 1994.

6. I don't generally know what I am going to read next. I tend to be a "find it on Overdrive (or on my shelves), it catches my interest, and I delve in" sort of person (whether its on my over 12,000+ TBR or not). But I now have not one, but two books about color pencil drawing that I want to read really, really badly. So I was thinking, maybe I would attack one of those next!

And, of course, now I can't find either of them! Organization fail!
