It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. It's a great post to organise yourself. It's an opportunity to visit and comment, and er... add to that ever growing TBR pile! So welcome in everyone. This meme started with J Kaye's Blog and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date. And here we are!
As a reader I gather all the books I want to read, and as always it takes ages to get to them. The same happens to me with quilting opportunities... I am always seeing fabrics, patterns and quilt alongs I want to try. There are never enough hours in the day!
Sometimes I lose something and never see it again. This week after four years an iPod Touch 4 turned up. I used them for class work when teaching and this went missing about a year or so before I retired. We stored the iPods in a filing cabinet and it turns out someone found it there. Now the school where I taught has since closed and moved to new premises and that filing cabinet moved too. Yet a teacher dropped the iPod Touch into me in pristine condition! I had a bit of a laugh at the photos and videos on it as it awakened memories. (Yes I bought a couple of iPods, I'd be waiting forever for the school to do it, although they did get an iPad for each room). When I was teaching I loved using such technology in the classroom. I donated the others to a starting out teacher when I retired, but I will keep this one now.
We had a lot of fun making the videos and of course I am sure they were educational!!
Also this week a book I requested on NetGalley over a year ago was also approved. I had given up on it and forgotten about it. How odd is that!
This week I have enjoyed a couple of bloggers who have been sharing about Book Expo. Sheila from Book Journey shared about time with Lisa Jewell and Jane Green and Kristin from Always With a Book shared each of her days 1-4 of Book Expo. I love to live vicariously!
What I read last week:
Well I didn't accomplish a lot of reading this week as I got caught up in hours of quilting. It was also a people kind of week, which was really nice but meant my reading was limited although rewarding.
I read for review....
What I am reading at present:
From the very recently bought pile a book from one of my top favourite series. I do read paranormal but I am not a huge paranormal reader, but this series speaks to my reader's heart. I love those changelings.
Still listening to...
Really enjoying it, I remember none of it which I guess is not surprising after so many years, and am chuckling away as I listen.
