It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

It's been a busy week this past week. I had to compile the high school newsletter, an endeavor that takes a good 12-15 hours. I also decided that with my husband out of town all week, it was the perfect time to paint our bedroom and bathroom. I painted the bathroom and then decided that the color didn't quite work. Time I will never get back. Then I painted the bedroom and discovered that I am never painting a room that requires a serious ladder again. This is why there are professional painters. At least I like the color. Then I repainted the bathroom. It's boring but done. After that, I drove to pick the college boy up and bring him home for a family wedding. Then I had to return him to college. It's no wonder that I had so little reading and reviewing time this past week! This week promises to be a busy one too so we'll see how the book front fares. This meme is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.
