Sunday Synopsis: August 28, 2011

I have had a great day and a great weekend!  I have completed a number of tasks and spent some great time with my kids.  And, I have had some fabulous reading time.  Of course, I still have a number of other things that I need to get completed as soon as I can, but I am choosing to look at the bright side this evening and appreciate the amount of things that I did get done!

Speaking of things I finished . . . I read When the Emperor Was Divine by Julie Otsuka this week and have read the majority of Feed by Mira Grant.  In fact, I really want to get this written, so that I can return to this book!  I'm having a hard time putting it down!  When I am done with that one, I think I am going to move on to the new release, Little Black Dress by Susan McBride.  It looks really good!

Outside of reading, this is another big week for me.  The students return to the University this week where I work and the class I teach begins tomorrow.  I am really excited to see the students again and to be back in the classroom.  I begin to realize more and more how much these two things are what I love most about my job . . . and makes me wonder if it is about time for a slight switch in profession.  Not now, but soon!

Moving beyond the deep thoughts of Tif, I thought I would leave you with the latest on my challenges.  

That's it for this week!  I've got some great things planned in the coming days, so be sure to check back.  Otherwise, I leave you with one question . . . What's on your reading agenda this week?


  1. In fact, I really want to get this written, so that I can return to this book!
    That summarises my week! (or the last couple of weeks, really) I'm 2/3 through the epic A Suitable Boy by Vikram Seth, plus in between I'm reading the wonderful In Siberia by Colin Thubron - I've been barely posting anything - Do Not Disturb, Reading In Progress!

  2. Tracy ... LOL!!! I love this: Do Not Disturb, Reading in Progress! We need to seriously have some of those made, especially considering my posting has decreased so much the last couple of weeks!

  3. Love that you're enjoying Feed so much, as I have this one in my TBR pile and am looking forward to reading it! And can I get one of those Do Not Disturb signs? *L*

    Have fun during your first week back at school!

  4. Alexia561 ... I really did enjoy Feed, so I'm excited for you to read it and hear what you think! And, I think we've got a good idea going here with the Do Not Disturb signs! I'm wondering if someone has already made one?!?
