At the beginning of the year I vowed to make Saturdays more social. With so many of us in quarantine, lockdown, practicing social distancing, or just staying in to avoid COVID19, any socializing feels essential. You are always welcome to join and I have made it as simple as possible. You can either comment below or link up a post of your own answering two big questions.
How are your 2020 reading challenges this week?
What are some of your favorite posts from this week?
Start on Your Shelfathon from The Quiet Pond.
This week? HAH! I haven’t updated this in forever. Here are my books from February AND March.
The Toll by Neil Shusterman
The Philosopher’s Flight by Tom Miller
Quackery: A Brief History of the Worst Ways to Cure Everything by Lydia Kang, MD and Nate Pedersen
These three lonely little books are kind of a pathetic considering I have added more than 20 to my physical shelf. I need to actually start on my shelf!
Challenge: Beat the Backlist from Novel Knight
Nothing! Well, that is not entirely true. Many of my audiobooks are from my backlist because they are easier to pick up from my library than physical books. But, this year I am trying not to double count books. Still, if this continues I reserve the right to change my mind on this.
Challenge: Audiobook Challenge – Caffeinated Reader & Hot Listens
Me by Elton John
The Alchemyst by Michael Scott
The Greatest Love Story Ever Told by Nick Offerman and Megan Mullally
The Zookeeper’s Wife by Diane Ackerman
Cary Grant: A Class Apart by Graham McCann
MY FAVORITE POSTS FROM THIS WEEK
Simply Sherri posted for PopCultureUncovered.com about all of the new releases that will be available to rent or those going directly to streaming services during the COVID19 crisis.
If you are looking for something different to do while at home, there is a poetry competition that is fully explained on The Nerdy Book Club.
BookerTalk has a great list of technology solutions for staying inside during this time. From audiobooks to online learning, there are some really fun resources here!
Speaking of audible and audiobooks, Hashanti has dived deeply into them! You can read the post here about the audible books Hashanti has been enjoying and, perhaps, find something new for yourself.
Finally, I am pretty inspired by Liz’s Stay at Home Club. I just love this idea and, if I can get organized enough, maybe I will even start one myself!
Tell me, please!
How are you being social today? Everyone okay out there?
