It’s time for Spring Break Backyard 2016! I have most of the week off with the local school systems, so I have big plans to work in the yard and go to some type of home improvement store too many times. I’m hoping there’s a little time for something fun in there, too, or at least some time for lazing about with books.
I got a bit of a head start on that end over the weekend. I finished up (and really enjoyed) Shelter, but I’m not quite sure where I’m sitting with Sunday’s on the Phone to Monday right now. I set it aside after not really feeling the urge to keep reading by 70 pages, but it did seem a little premature. I started and finished Dear Committee Members by Julie Schumacher, which was a quick read for my book club, and dove into Everyday Sexism by Laura Bates. Now I’m planning to pick up Broken Three Times by Joan Kaufman and will have to decide whether I’ll give Sunday’s on the Phone to Monday another shot or grab something else.
Just a heads up that one of my favorite events, Dewey’s 24-Hour Readathon, is coming up at the end of next month and signups are now open for anyone interested in reading for all (or part of) April 23rd!
