Books Read From My Shelves

Interesting Tidbits on the Web:


I am honestly a little surprised with how much I read last week (and yesterday - it was a holiday here in RI).  I ended up really getting into The Kingmaking, even though it was a large dense read, I didn't want to put it down but that worked out well for my Tome Topple Readathon!  I am also a little surprised at how much I was able to read with everything going on at home this last week.  On Monday night last week our lovely dog Niko got himself sprayed by a skunk and bolted into the house, EVERYTHING stunk! I spent all week washing every piece of fabric in our house, including all the clothes in the dressers, closets and all the upholstery.  Even the walls needed to be scrubbed where he rubbed against them.  Finally on Saturday I managed to get the house smelling good again and was finishing the last of the laundry when we discovered our dishwasher was leaking through the floor into the basement and on to one of my bookshelves!! So yup it was a good thing that I had an extra day off yesterday because I was so busy all last week and weekend that I needed the day to get back to school shopping done and the last of the birthday party prep done!

YIKES! I need a break big time!! Anyway, there are only a few days left in the Tome Topple and I am trying to finish a second tome, we will see how it goes. I have been doing really good with updating on Instagram, and have been doing good keeping up with photo challenges so far too!

Hope your week last week went better than mine and I hope we all have good weeks this week!


  1. Oh man! When it rains it pours. So sorry to hear about your misfortunes. Glad you got so much reading done still.

    1. LOL isn't that the truth! Not that it was anything horrible considering what other people go through but it still has not been pleasant trying to hold everything together and still be productive.
