Week in Review: March 18

This week was exhausting with the cold snap and the snowstorm. While a Tuesday snow day was nice I am definitely over the winter weather at this point. Enough! I have been using this week to catch up on some reading (shocking I know), start working on Spring New Books handouts at work, and to try and clean off my bookshelves again.

This time my target has been my to read books as I try to get real about what I actually want to read vs. what I ought to read. (Working in a library I sometimes fall victim to feeling like I need to read everything and that I need to read things I might not have any interest in before I recommend it. That isn’t always the case thanks to professional reviews and while it’s sometimes good to read more broadly, I am going back to just being more intentional with my choices rather than trying to read it all. It’s too much!)

This week I read a lot by which I mean I read as much as I am going to read for some books before I realized I just wasn’t into them. This freed up a lot of shelf space, eliminated some review pressure (I review almost everything I read but not if I just don’t have anything good to say), and it also helped dramatically lower my to read list. Win all around.

Here’s my latest from Instagram:
