The Sunday Post : Get your bookish news – Easter in Lockdown

April 12, 2020 meme, The Sunday Post 23

Welcome to The Sunday Post, 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 is a bit of an odd one isn’t it..celebrating Easter in Lockdown.

Between My Sundays – what happened this week

Well like most people not very much!  Lockdown is in full swing here, and you only leave the house for exercise, staying within a 2K zone of your home, or for essential grocery shopping.  I’m working remotely, so I’m busy during the day.  And in the evening, I’m enjoying sitting out in my own garden, reading my books.  

Plus I’m getting out twice a day to walk.  Luckily I live in a remote area so it’s easy to social distance when mooching up and down country lanes.  Initially I had great plans about learning Spanish, but I’ve downgraded my plans to just surviving this crisis.  That’s more than enough without stressing about anything else I think.

    Your lockdown sounds exactly the same as ours here in NZ. My big event last week was going out for a flu jab! All the books you have received to read and review look very promising. All unknown to me but that’s the joy of visiting so many blog countries!

      Isn’t it unread, how quickly the world ground to a halt. I love finding new books on blogs too, and like you I hop around the globe. Happy Easter Kathryn.

    If I had known I was going to be home for this long, I would have planned some sort of self improvement type stuff. I could have sharpened up some hard skills, which have grown weaker with disuse or started an exercise plan. Good for you getting in two walks a day. That’s fantastic. I hope you enjoy all your books. I have read 3 of them, and enjoyed all quite a bit.

    Our confinement is the same, apart from the fact that we don’t have a limit on how far from our house we can stray walking or cycling, that is. And we can’t be more than maximum five people together. We usually leave the house in pairs, though. And thank goodness for the garden!
    I’m glad you’re staying safe and healthy. Enjoy your new books 🙂

    That’s great you can work remotely at least. I also only go out for some walks and grocery shopping. I always try to do the social distancing when outside, but not as not everyone is as careful and I don’t live in a remote place, so that makes it a bit more difficult. I definitely think just surviving and doing your usual things is already difficult enough. Have a great week!

  5. Angela

    Your schedule, minus the work from home, sounds pretty similar to mine! I enjoy getting out for walks, too – it’s hard being in the house so much!

  6. Laurel-Rain Snow

    Your isolation sounds pretty great! We do have a small courtyard where we can walk, but on a schedule so as to avoid others, lol.

    I like the look of your books…The Cutting Place and My Pear Shaped Life.

    Stay safe and enjoy your reading.

  7. Stacy Renee @ LazyDayLit

    That sounds like a lovely lowkey week!
    My area is not as rural as it used to be so I’m avoiding drives altogether. Drivers are especially distracted right now and traffic really hasn’t subsided here either!
    Also, you’ve reminded me that I need to get back to my language learning! I’ve been too distracted for it lately!
    Have a great week!

    I love Marian Keyes and The Diary Of Provincial Lady looks good and the cover is beautiful. Enjoy all of your books and have a good week! I look forward to your reviews of these books, I always enjoy reading your reviews.

  9. Nicci @ Sunny Buzzy Books

    I’m working from home at the moment too which is good… Much better position to be in that lots of others, which I’m grateful for. However, I’m struggling with lockdown. I think it’s because I’m struggling to read at the moment!

    I’m glad you’ve found some kind of rhythm with it all.

    My week was LONG. I worked all week, long mornings too. But it’s getting better. 🙂 I wish I could work at home. My business isn’t doing well and blogging has been difficult too.

    I am glad to hear you are getting out and walking, too. Being outside is so important right now. 🙂 Take care hon!

    The lockdown here is kind of the same. I am happy that I don´t live in the big city and am able to go for walks in the fields. Distancing is much easier there. I checked the novel recommendation by Marian Keyes but here in Germany the book is in print too expensive and the ebook not available yet. Well, I check it later again *smile*. Hang in there and stay safe. Happy reading!

  13. Kimberly @ Caffeinated Reviewer

    I’ve always worked from home, but having everyone else in my household working from home and eating here 3 X’s a day has been a huge change for me. I’ve lost some clients whose financial situation has changed due to Covid-19, but this too shall pass. Be safe and happy reading!

  14. Literary Feline

    Making it through is about all I can manage right now too. I am glad you have found a new normal under the circumstances. Your new books look like they will keep you entertained. I love the cover of Season of Second Chances. And The Cutting Place sounds good. I really need to give Casey’s series a try. I hope you have a good week. Stay safe and well.

    “but I’ve downgraded my plans to just surviving this crisis. ” So true! I’m finding that even though I thought all this extra time would enable me to get so much done, sometimes it’s not? It’s like the stress and uncertainty just saps the motivation sometimes…

    Sitting out in the garden reading sounds wonderful though. I’ve been sitting outside and just relaxing more too, sometimes with a book, and it’s just so nice. the fresh air really helps… 🙂

    Your reads look fun!!

    Our lock down is going about the same as yours though we have some restaurant takeout options and Sunday we had tornado warnings so that added a bit of excitement. The Diary of a Provincial Lady looks wonderful – so pretty. Hope you have a great week!

    We’ll get through this. No need to learn Spanish if you don’t feel up to it. Though my kids are doing that duolingo (?) thing. I think that’s it. I may try it if I have room on my phone for the app. *virtual hugs*
