My Monday tradition, including a look back and a look ahead — what I read last week, what new books came my way, and what books are keeping me busy right now. Plus a smattering of other stuff too.
Well, my hand surgery went well, but now I’m in this big, bulky splint for about ten days,,, following which I’ll be in a hard cast for a month. And typing is just as slow and awkward and frustrating as you might guess, so after I finish this post, I probably won’t do much else online for a while.
Ugh, so many typos! This may not be worth the effort, gonna keep things really brief,,, reviews will (probably) follow once I have better use of my fingers.
What did I read during the last week?
What will I be reading during the coming week?
Currently in my hands:
Now playing via audiobook:
Two ongoing book group read right now:
- The Pickwick Papers by Charles Dickens — our current classic selection, reading and discussing two chapters per week.
- Virgins by Diana Gabaldon: Our newest group read — a novella set during Jamie Fraser’s teen years.
So many books, so little time…

I hope your hand recovers quickly!
You read a lot last week! I hope you enjoyed them all 🙂
Oh wow, good luck with recovery! It looks like you’ve been able to read a ton, even if you can’t type😁
Thanks! Feeling frustrated, because Our War was amazing and I’m dying to write a review!
Glad to hear the surgery went well, Lisa! I hope this will be a fast recovery! And I’ll be looking forward to your thoughts on Our War. That cover is just so striking.
It was such a powerful read! I’m dying to write a review… need a little more use of my fingers first!
I hope your recovery is fast and painless! We’ll be here when you get back 😀
Thanks so much!
I’m glad the surgery went well, I hope your recovery is quick!
Maybe try some voice to text while you are healing?
Wishing you a great reading week
Thank you so much!
Hope your hand is feeling better and that now you have more use of your fingers. And you can always read, which is great! It’s amazing how bulky the bandages are, isn’t it? Hope you are a righty!
I am a righty, which definitely helps! My poor husband is getting tired of washing dishes every day, but I guess that’s payback for the last time he had surgery and needed to be waited on afterward. 🙂
