The Sunday Post #84 (9.13.15)

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.  

It was a busy week, but a productive one. Work is starting to get busy again, and will stay that way until the end of October. Hopefully I will be able to stay on top of my reading commitments and continue to fit in my workouts as they provide good stress relief. I'm fortunate that with some of the work I have to do, I'm able to listen to audio books, so I foresee my audio numbers continuing to rise. Now if I can only manage to carve out some actual reading time, I'll be good to go! And that doesn't even take into account the start of fall tv - good thing that's not upon us just yet :)

Have a great week everyone!!!

  1. I like to listen to audio books during my commute to work and back. Unfortunately if I try to listen while doing other things I get distracted.

    I am looking forward to the start of fall TV though I know it will reduce my reading time too. I still make time for it though as I usually just watch one show a night.

    The Paris Key sounds interesting and so does The Middle of Somewhere. I've got a copy of Along the Infinite Sea for review but I'm waiting to read it till I've read Tiny Little Things since there is some character overlap.

  2. You got a lot read last week! Like Christina, I find I do best with audio books on my commute; at home I get too distracted.

    Have a great week!

  3. I admire your ability to listen to audio. I do love them but only mostly when I walk and even then my mind wanders. Some great books in your line up. I have a review (ebook) for Beatriz Williams - you started me on reading this author!

  4. Audio books are really great when you are busy..I do hope you find time to curl up with a good book this week...nothing beats it!

  5. Glad you can listen to audiobooks at work (I do too!). Looking forward to the fall tv season!

  6. How was The Girl in the Spider's Web? I loved the other 3 Lisbeth Salander books, but have been scared to read this one since it's by another author!
