The Weekend Review - April 16th-18th

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It's a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.

If you'd like to participate with The Sunday Salon, it is now being hosted by Deb at Readerbuzz.

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading is a meme with a new host!  It's now being hosted by Kathryn at Book Date. This is where we share what we read this past week, what we hope to read this week…. and anything in between! This is a great way to plan out your reading week and see what others are currently reading as well… you never know where that next “must read” book will come from!

I'm also linking to  Stacking The Shelves which is hosted by Reading Reality.

Hi Everyone!  

Happy Easter and Happy Passover to all those who celebrate!  I hope everyone is enjoying their holiday.

It was a busy week for me on and off the blog.  I got my second Covid booster.  So, that's out of the way.  No real side effects.  Another thing I can cross off my "to do" list.

I finished two good books this week.  My TV viewing is going well...I'm all caught up with Survivor, Transplant, The Resident and Bull.  I still have a few more shows to watch this week.

Not much going on around here.  I hope you all have a great week!
