Sunday post 69; It's Monday, what are you reading? 55


The Sunday Post - a chance for a chat and catch-up with other bloggers - is hosted by Kimba, here: http://caffeinatedbookreviewer.com/ and It's Monday! What are you reading? is hosted by Kathryn over here: http://bookdate.blogspot.co.nz/

Last week continued in much the same vein - some days I have to stop and think what the day is, or what the date is. 

There were, however, a couple of highlights. On Tuesday night a friend of mine and I - as a team of two - attended a book-related quiz at the library. For library week, the library has been doing all kinds of events and fundraisers with the proceeds going to Furever Homes, a local charity that fosters and cares for abandoned or lost pets.


There were only two of us on our team because we couldn't draft anyone else - lol. The idea was to pit teams against a team of librarians in a series of book-related questions. It was a lot of fun - and we won. Heh. :D We impressed the librarians I think - lol. It was a good night all around.

On Saturday at the library, the Furever Homes people hosted a kind of meet-and-greet and people who are fostering pets brought their dogs and cats in to the library for visiting. It was slightly chaotic, but also great fun. 

For reading - I finished volume one of the Saga graphic novel, and enjoyed that a lot. I'm still working on Hamilton, and I'm eyeing up Everfair by Nisi Shawl next.

So for this week - more job applications, housework, hopefully some blog posts, and try not to go quietly insane.

How about you? How's your week? What are you reading?
