Sunday Post: Jury Duty

The Sunday Post hosted by the Caffeinated Reader is an opportunity to share with the blogging community what bookish things are happening in our world. So what have I been doing?

Reading | In one glorious day, I read hundreds of pages in V.E. Schwab’s A Conjuring of Light, the third in her Shades of Magic series. I rarely get to sit and read for uninterrupted hours, but as I had jury duty last Monday – an uneventful, we just stayed in the room all day jury duty – I was able to read and read and read. And I’ve never seen so many people reading in one place….not even a library.

bingewatchingWatching | You guys are probably tired of hearing it, but I’m still working through Stargate SG-1. It’s my second go-round with the show and I’m still loving it. I feel like I’ve made a sort of swap over the last ten years. I used to watch a dozen shows at a time and read only one book; now I tend to read multiple books simultaneously but only (binge)watch one show at a time.

Blogging |Last week, I posted reviews of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time by Mark Haddon and Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury. I also posted a 50/50 Friday on the best and worst novel set in a school which was fun.

Anticipating | My cousin Tara gets married this coming weekend, so the family and I are headed out to Iowa.

Loving | Madison got to bring home the macaw Malachi for the weekend and she was so excited. And of course, Carter was excited too. First order of business, make a mask of Malachi so we could all pretend to be him…

I think Madison did a great job on the mask!

  1. Oh man! The idea of jury duty doesn’t sound so bad if you don’t get called and get to just hang out reading all day. I feel like I haven’t had uninterrupted time to read in awhile either, but partially that’s my own fault for not making a point of putting my phone down and focusing on a book. I loved the Shades of Magic trilogy — I want there to be more stories in that universe!


  2. Now that’s the kind of jury duty I could get behind! I’m in my 50s and still waiting to be called.

    When I read that your daughter was allowed to bring Malachi the Macaw home, I thought it was a real bird. Then I scrolled down and realized it’s a stuffie! Which makes more sense, of course. She did a great job on that mask.

    Enjoy your cousin’s wedding next week! Our niece is getting married next weekend, too. I hope they both have lovely weather for their wedding day!
