Weekly Recap #149: Week of 3/29 – 4/4
It’s time for another weekly recap post of all things happening on and off the blog. This week I’ll be linking to the Sunday Post, which is hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviewer.
I honestly don’t have much to talk about this week. Apologies for my lack of blog hopping this week. I’m finding that my one big challenge with working from home is that my desk (or maybe it’s the chair) is not comfortable for sitting 7-8 hours in a row. My knees have been killing me all week so as soon as I’m done working, I abandon my computer and spend most of the rest of the evening trying to stretch my legs and get comfortable again. I tried to rig up a standing desk for myself but am not having much luck because I need something big enough to hold 2 monitors, plus everything else I use for work, including a large adding machine. Virginia’s governor has issued a stay-at-home order for us through June 10th so I may have to actually buy a standing desk if I’m going to be home for that long. Until I figure out a more comfortable setup, I’ve been confining my blog hopping to a few minutes in the mornings before I start working and then the rest on the weekend.
So my big accomplishment for the week is that I’m now completely caught up on George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series. Thanks to insomnia and lots of free time on my hands in the evenings, I breezed through the 1,000+ pages of A Dance with Dragons and now am really hoping that Martin is using his social distancing time to bring me that 6th book.
Because I was so hellbent on finishing A Dance with Dragons, I did get a little behind on my Aprils ARCs. Or so I thought. I don’t know if publication dates have gotten pushed back because of the pandemic or if I’m just losing my mind, but I was sure I had several April 14th ARCs to read and now I only see one on my list. No clue what happened there, but oh well, on to late April/early May ARCs then. I doubt I’ll get to all 6 titles I’ve shared below, but we’ll see. If my insomnia continues, it could be a record reading week, lol.
I hope everyone out there is staying safe, healthy, and is practicing social distancing. Take care!
