The Sunday Post #64 (3.22.15)

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'm also going to link this up with Sheila's It's Monday post over at Book Journey. 
 
Today, we are hosting our annual St. Patty's Day party. My town, the #1 Irish town in NY, has the 2nd biggest St. Patty's Day parade outside NYC's parade and is always the Sunday after St. Patrick's Day, unless the holiday falls on a Sunday, in which case our parade is on the actual holiday and the city's is the day before. We live just 4 houses off the parade route, so it doesn't matter what the weather is (in today's case, it's rather chilly and there's still some snow on the ground thanks to the snowstorm on Friday!) as people can easily walk back and forth to our house and the parade. We have the event catered - I get bagels and fruit for before the parade and then we have the traditional corned beef and cabbage for after. It's a fun day and one of the few big events we host at my house.  

On the reading front, I don't seem to be getting much reading time in due to work. My schedule is a little crazy at the moment, but I am getting a lot of audio time in - lots of time spent in the car, driving back and forth between locations. This might be the first month where I finish more audio books than print books!

Have a great week everyone!!!

  5. St. Patrick's day parade sounds fun. I haven't made my corned beef and cabbage yet. But I finally bought the stuff to make it yesterday. A parade sounds fun!

  6. There are a couple of your books I've not heard of before. I'll be sure to go check them out. My sister used to live close to a parade route for Mardi Gras and it was so easy to attend with only a short walk. Have fun!

  7. Your celebration sounds fun. My son (23) cooked a brisket this year. I turned out very good. Glad you are able to listen to audio! It sure helps when you can't read. Have a great week.

  8. Long live audiobooks! I loved One Plus one on audio, and then two of my sisters read it and loved it. Should be a popular giveaway.
