I am still reading . . . The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot, The Shining by Stephen King, The Ultimate Top Secret Guide To Taking Over The World by Kenn Nesbitt, and Ivy & Bean by Annie Barrows. I did finish The Help by Kathryn Stockett earlier today on audio and am in the process of downloading The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater for my next listen. I anticipate a lot of changes to occur this week on the reading front because I am so close to finishing at least three of the above titles!
How was your reading this week?
The Shining Readalong is in full force, with the second to last check-in posted this morning! And, the official read-along announcement for Doctor Sleep will be posted at some point in time tomorrow! Be watching for it!
What are your thoughts on read-alongs? Do you enjoy participating in them? Would you like to see more here?
Writing was few and far between this last week. I started out so well, but it simply did not stick. I think it is because I am having a hard time keeping a schedule. Writing at home these days does not yield a whole lot. I have gone to the library one day and that was probably my most productive day yet. I really need to work on getting this writing schedule down. That will be my big goal for this week. In particular, getting out of the house at least three times to write elsewhere, whether it may be at a library or a coffee shop. Anything at this point is better than being at home!
What scheduling tips do you have for your writing?
The family schedule is chaotic. Most evenings are filled with extracurriculars, meetings with teachers, etc. I have been trying to reserve my evenings for reading, but then the fall season of TV is about to kick off! I was hoping to watch Sleepy Hollow tonight, but that didn't work out. I will have to see if I can catch the encore episode. Other shows I am looking forward to are Grimm, Parenthood, and the new SHIELD. And, if all works out, I may even get to watch Season 4 of The Walking Dead in real time. I was able to pick up the first volume of Season 3 from the library today and can't wait to dive in. In fact, I think it is time to sign off, so I can do just that!
What TV shows are you most looking forward to this fall?
