Monday Update, Stacking the Shelves, Sunday Post

My Week in Review 2017 #33

This is my week in review, where I update you on my life~ reading, blogging and general. I will also be linking up with some amazing blogs.

Sunday Post

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share News. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.

Life Happenings:

The weather has turned much nicer temperature-wise lately, hovering in the 80s for the most part. And while the nicer weather has been a breath of fresh air, the excess traffic from all of the people traveling to our area to watch the eclipse has not been. We are part of the area that will be experiencing the full eclipse, so there are a lot of people visiting this weekend to witness it.

Speaking of the eclipse, I was in elementary school during the last solar eclipse and I really don’t remember much about it. I know that we were told not to look at it, and we make telescopes out of toilet paper rolls with mirrors or something like that, so we could see a reflection of it. But I don’t remember the eclipse itself at all.

I’ve gotten kind of one-click happy again this week with the Kindle books {as evidenced below}. Almost everything was on sale or super cheap to begin with. I also got 2 of my book orders from last week {there’s still one more coming}… Hello, my name is Michelle, and I’m a book addict.
