Hey everyone. I’m not going to lie; this is going to be a pretty concise Sunday Review. I’ve been in a reading slump this last week – mostly due to all the hours I worked (45 since my last Sunday Review). I wish I could say I made tons of money, but I don’t make tons of money at work, so it was all not very worth it in the long run. Oh well. At least today was my last Sunday ever working my horrible job (YAY!). I still have 3 weekday shifts left before I can officially say goodbye. Getting on with things, though, the sad news is that I didn’t finish a single book last week. I’ve started like 3, but am only about half way through any given one I’m currently reading. I did finish 2 short stories, but since those are short stories, I still consider myself in a bit of a reading slump.
Also, since I quit my job, I’ve been strictly following my book-buying ban, unfortunately. Yesterday I was in the same vicinity as Barnes and Noble and Half Price Books, and I couldn’t go to either of them. It literally pained me not to be able to step foot inside. Okay, so I could have gone inside. But, if I would have, I would have bought a book. I have zero self control. So, it’s best to just stay away all together.
Anyway, now that I’ve covered all the important, okay not so important, news from last week. Here’s a list of the books I’m currently reading. Prepare to be shocked.
The Saint by V.S. Pritchett
The Other Side of the Hedge by E.M. Forster
