Sunday Book Share #171

 I'm participating in The Sunday Post, hosted by Caffeinated Book ReviewerStacking the Shelves, hosted by Tynga's Reviews; and Bought Borrowed and Bagged, hosted by TalkSupe. It's a chance to share the print and digital books we've received and posts and events on the blog.

It was a really quiet week on the blog last week. My asthma exacerbation became full-blown and I spent all Sunday, and most of the week, on the couch. I was out of work until Friday, which made for a very short work week. The timing was lousy since I haven't been at the new job very long but my asthma has never been cooperative. :D But, once I got to the doctor's office and got steroids and antibiotics, I saw a rapid improvement. I decided take some time off and not to worry about visiting other blogs or spending much time on my blog. I slept a lot, and once the drugs kicked in, I blazed through my pile of library books. I hope to do better this week with content and visits.

The Week In Review

  10. I'm so glad you took the time to rest! I've finally admitted that when I'm sick that's what I need to do. A day in bed is generally makes the crud go away about 10 times faster than trying to push through. Opus!! I used to love Bloom County! Have a great week and feel better!

    1. Yep! Pushing through can be the wrong choice but it takes a lot of guts to give permission to just rest. I hope you're feeling better!

  19. Glad you're feeling better! I was going to say that most of the books were on the short side but I added up the pages and I hit 1,578! Wow, no wonder the laundry isn't done ;-)

  22. I've been following your posts on Facebook, so I know you're not totally over this flare yet. I hope and pray you'll feel 100% better soon! At least you got to get through some of your library books...

    Claude is such a pretty boy. I love that silvery-grey fur.
