The Occasional Weekly Recap

I don’t have any bookish updates to share except that, oops, I did it again. I bought another book in the Penguin Clothbound Classics collection. Sanditon, the unfinished novel by Jane Austen, is en route to moi from a little town called London.

If you need a break from the crappy news on either side of the pond, and really who doesn’t, then allow me to persuade you to get lost within the pages of my bookish blog. Below are this week’s posts.

Happy Saturday, dear friends. May your Saturday (and all your days) be without stress and with good health. Just for fun, here is a round-up of this week’s blog posts.

Pairing books with tea (Tea with Mr. Rochester)

Did I really need more Jane Austen books? Spoiler alert: the answer is a resounding yes. They are so beautiful to look at it. I’m thinking of pulling a Duchess of Cambridge and placing them on my desk.

Hello, how are you on this sunny Saturday morning? By sunny, I mean that the sun is streaming through my windows. Like you, I’m mostly housebound. Though I feel very privileged for having a patio and plan to do some reading out there later this morning.

I’m currently reading Square Haunting. I love it so much that I feel overwhelmed and am reading a little at a time. It’s almost as if I don’t want the book to end…do you ever feel like that too?

Grab your cup of tea (or coffee) and keep on reading:

I hope you had a good week! My week was fine, but I have so many worries lingering over me that it’s hard to really enjoy much right now. I know you probably feel the same.

On a lighter note, this week was another busy book blogging week. Below is a recap for your reading pleasure.

Happy reading!

Weekly Recap

It’s been an interesting week, to say the least. Just today I found out that the World Health Organization said that COVID-19 can linger for hours on clothing. They recommend you switch clothing as soon as you get home. This shouldn’t be a problem for us. I think most of us have “outside clothes” and “inside clothes.”

Anyway, in case you want to show my blog some love, below are links to this week’s blog posts. Thank you for stopping by and be well.
