Weekly Wrap-Up #51

Posted April 26, 2015 by Kathy in Wrap-Up / 6 Comments

My Weekly Wrap Up is my version of The Sunday Post hosted by Kimba at Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

 

Last week was quiet on the blog.  It was nice to catch up on comments and my reading.  For the very first time I read 2 books at the same time.  I read a paperback during the day (since I don’t have a book light) and an ebook at night.  I got this idea from another blogger and it worked out great!  To keep organized I took notes for both books for the reviews.

 

Another first for me was listening to an audio book.  I have been listening to The Vixen and The Vet by Katy Regnery when I’m at the gym.  At first I had a hard time concentrating on the story (because friends were talking and I was looking at the treadmill screen) but eventually I was able to focus on the story.  I’ve already read the book but I am enjoying the audio version.

 

Have you tried anything new lately?

 

Here is what happened last week on the blog:

Entertainment News

 

I watched all my favorite shows this week except for Arrow. Our local station showed the Giant’s game so it postponed the airing until 10 pm and I wasn’t able to stay up. The only sport my husband loves is football so we were upset.  I hate it when this happens! I’ll have to watch the episode online to catch up.

 

Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron releases on Friday!!  I can’t wait for this.  Normally we don’t like to go on opening weekends because of the crowds but we’ll make an exception for this movie!!  Who else is excited for this?

 

 

How was your week?

      I always thought I might get confused reading 2 books at the same time lol. But it works out really good. I prefer reading on my Nook but I do have a lot of paperbacks that I never got around to reading. Now I know I can lol. Thanks Laura!

  1. I read/listen to as many as 3 Kathy. One on Nook, an audio and sometimes a physical book. The trick for me is to read different genres. For example if the book on my Nook is a romance, I listen to a darker book or different genre on Audio and maybe a historical for the physical book..this way I don’t cross over plots or characters.

      That is a good idea! Not only to keep the stories straight but also so I don’t get bored with the same genre. Thanks for the tip!

  2. That is funny about your mail there…I hate thinking I am getting a book and it’s something else..lol. Your braver than me, I told my Dad we would go see that movie the week after it comes out in hopes of a lesser crowd..lol.

      I forgot I ordered it for him lol. I hate the crowds but we’ll try to go there early and get our tickets online. May is going to be busy month so this might be the only time we get to go. Hopefully we get good seats lol. Thanks Stormi!
