The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kim the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. Grab a cuppa and let me bend your ear (eyes?) for a few minutes with all my bookish news. This week was all about day trips and downtime.
Between My Sundays – what happened this week
Day Trips and Downtime:
I’d a few days off work and made the most of it by venturing off on some day trips. We drove to the beach on two days and spent the days, reading, eating and sunning ourselves. Then we made a trip to Cobh, Co Cork, which was the last port of call for The Titantic. First we lunched at the old White Star Ticket Office which is now a bar, and afterwards took a boat trip to a nearby island. I’m restored after my few days and ready to fall back into my normal work routine. Well as much as I’ll ever be!
Over on twitter, I held a very informal poll on preferred reading formats. Are you surprised at the results?
I’m a fan of paperbacks and ebooks, but I don’t really like hardbacks (too heavy and awkward to carry around), and I’m shocked that no one voted for audiobooks! Have to say, I love them, even if they are not my first choice of reading format. Seems like they are the least favourite choice for book bloggers (as that is mostly what my sample comprised of).

Books I have received to review:
None. I’m going cold turkey on review books for the moment.
Books I have bought:
Again, none. I’m trying not to buy any new books till I read some of the ones I already own.
I love how browsing in the library results in me finding books that I’ve never even heard of. The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society and You Will Know Me were books that I was searching for, so I snapped them up. But First Impressions and Cleaning Nabokov’s House both just caught my eye with their fab covers and catchy titles. Seems like they would be interesting reads so into the book bag with them.
Finally, why not join me on Instagram? I use Instagram to capture a flavour of my life via books, nature and colour. The most popular one this week was my book picnic.
So, that’s my week wrapped up. Happy Reading to all.
