Weekend Update February 26, 2011

>> Saturday, February 26, 2011

This week:
I feel like I hardly had any reading time this week. It was a totally crazy week at work this week leaving me in that weird place between wanting to read for the escape and relaxation and having my brain too fried to concentrate much on reading. I did manage to finish Among the Mad by Jacqueline Winspear and start Mark Billingham’s Lazybones (the third book in his Detective Tom Thorne series.

Other than books and reading:
Usually in Portland, we’re past any chance of snow after Valentine’s Day. Not so this year. We got a late February cold snap and enough snow to make an annoyance. Luckily it snowed overnight and was enough to keep the truly terrified off the roads that morning. I had a nice quiet day at the office that day since everyone else in my department opted to work from home that day. I’m not afraid to drive in snow, but ice will make me work from home. Fortunately it dried out after the snow melted and before it got cold overnight and we didn’t get the threatened icy roads yesterday.

This is not what I should see from my office window this late in February.

Added to my TBR List (To Be Read) this week:

Heads You Lose by Lisa Lutz and David Hayward – this one just sounds like a crazy bit of fun and mystery all mixed together.

Purchased this week:

So Cold the River by Michael Koryta – I’ve read a few of his Lincon Perry series and both The Hubster and I loved The Cypress House so I picked this one up since I’m sure we’ll both read it.

And finally, the library stack has been reduced by one this week with nothing added.

I am so sick of the winter! We got more snow last night. I think we have plenty now. Bring on the sun and spring!

Ummm...I kinda wish my library pile looked like that. I really want to give Kortya as I've heard good things about his books. Hopefully spring will arrive soon...it is needed!

We had a thunderstorm already this morning, so I'm hoping that means spring is on its way!

Kailana: ME TOO - I'm ready for some spring.

Samantha: Oh my library pile doesn't look like that very often. I suspended all my holds for a few weeks because we've got a vacation coming up. I may be setting myself up for trouble later.

BethF: Yay for signs of spring!!
