The Sunday Post #17 (3.30.14)

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.   

I've decided to try a new weekly meme - a place where I can do both a weekly wrap up and share what books I get all in one post, so I'm going to give The Sunday Post a try, and also link up with Sheila's It's Monday Post over at Book Journey.  


Got to spend the weekend in Annapolis, Maryland - hubby had to attend a 2-day seminar for sailing and I went along for the getaway weekend! Although the weekend was a bust weather-wise, I made the most of it and got a ton of reading done. I managed to find a cute coffee house that served really good tea and spent a few hours there reading on Saturday and then found a Starbucks on Sunday after I checked out of the hotel while waiting for hubby before we headed home. It was a good weekend reading-wise, but I'm bummed I didn't get to do any sight-seeing due to the rain. Oh well, guess we'll just have to head back another weekend!
 

Have a great week everyone!!!

  2. I have The Storied Life of AJ Fikry for review and I hope to read it soon. The Beth Harbison book sounds like it could be fun.

    I'm sorry that the rain spoiled your sightseeing plans but I'm glad you found a way to make your trip fun anyway. A nice cozy coffee shop and some reading time sounds very relaxing!

  4. Sounds like the weekend was relaxing. I did a lot more work than I was planning to this weekend. Next weekend I am volunteering at a school to paint. I think I have a down weekend for Dewey's :) YEAH!
