Once again I’ll be linking this up with the Sunday Post (hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviewer).
I’ve now been back at school/work for two weeks. Monday was actually a good day. The district maintenance people came over and started moving all my bookshelves back into the library! So it was really starting to look like a library again! Still so much to do. It was so hot out though.
Tuesday was another busy day! We got all the shelves, mostly, put back up and arranged how we wanted. Tables were brought back in as well. But once we got them set up, one of the administrators came in and said we had to move them for registration next week. Even though we’ll have new teachers coming in this Thursday. Oh well. Also all the boxes are still piled up. And they are all mixed up with nonfiction and fiction, etc. The boxes say what is inside them, but they’ll have to be moved. And I have to start at the beginning of both the NF Dewey and Fiction author last name, can’t just start putting books on shelves since it isn’t boxed that easily. Oh well. Lots of steps this week. Monday I got over 11,000 on my Fitbit before I took it off when I got home. Tuesday night I had over 10,000 around 1 pm I think, then I went and did some shopping and errands after school and ended up with over 13,000 steps for the day!
Wednesday wasn’t quite as busy with moving things. I did more at my desk and they got our circulation computers mostly set up so we have that again at least. Didn’t get quite as many steps as the first two days of the week.
Thursday we started doing more small things like getting some displays out, without books of course since they’re all in boxes that I can’t really get to at the moment. In the afternoon the new teachers met in the library for a short time.
Friday was a quiet day in the library. But my assistant and I got a lot of signage up and bulletin boards and other decorations. Next Monday and Tuesday are schedule pick up days, so we won’t get to actually do library work, but that’s okay because all the stuff will be taking place in the library so it’s not like we could do anything anyway.
Saturday was sooooooo hot!!! I’m so ready to be done with this heat! Especially knowing we are not close to fall weather yet. We always have this heat till at least September as long as I can remember. Labor Day weekend always seems to be miserable, so I know not to think it’s fall before then. But I did go visit my friend who is a dachshund breeder to play with puppies in the morning before it got too warm. Here are some pictures of that.
Finished an ARC of the first one for a review this past week. The second was an e-galley for a blog tour last week. The third was an audiobook the author gave me and I need to put a review up! The fourth was an ARC from the publisher that I reviewed this past week as well!
New Additions to My Library
So I now have 3 copies of the first book. I had made a double trade for a more expensive book off someone’s Amazon wishlist so I could get the Buffy ARC. Unfortunately the day I got the other two copies of the first one in the mail, she’d already sent these out so it was too late to see if she’d do a different book. 🙁
So I’m listening to the first one for a review tour. I can’t share the audiobook cover yet because they haven’t announced the narrators yet. The second one was purchased with my August Audible credit.
The first one for a review this Tuesday. I actually got it before last week’s post but forgot to add it! Even though I’m so packed full of books to review over the next couple of weeks, since I read the first two I have to know how second book’s trilogy ends! The review should be a week from this Tuesday. The second book is the next in the Pucked series offspring NA series by Helena Hunting, or H. Hunting for this series. That review is coming up at the end of the month.
The first two were for signing up for authors’ newsletters the rest were free on Kindle.
What I’m Watching
Same weekly shows of Evil, American Horror Stories, and continuing with season 2 of Travelers after the first season had a MAJOR cliffhanger season finale. Friday night always feels like it should be a movie night, so I decided to watch Love & Gelato on Netflix. Now I want to try the pastry they were talking about, Maritozzi. There is an Italian bakery not too far from where I live that I might have to see if they sell it! While I’ve read the third book in the YA series, and not this first one, I loved the movie. I realized I had a huge smile on my face at the end. I highly recommend it if you like sweet rom-coms!

Coming Up Next Week on the Blog
So I thought it might be fun to add this section in since a lot of other blogs do it, and that way you can check back for fun reviews.
All of these should be reviewed this week! I also have several cover reveals coming this week.
How was your week? Can you believe it’s August already? Did you read or watch anything good? Get any good books? Have anything exciting coming up this week?
