My Reading Update: November 21st, 2020


Welcome to my reading update!  I'm going to post this on a few blog hops such as Stacking The Shelves run by Team Tynga's Reviews, and Sunday Post, run by Kimberly at Caffeinated Book Reviewer and a new Facebook group I've joined called The Sunday Salon

Seeing what other are reading (and finding a novel that everyone's talking about) is the reason I love looking at blog hop posts.  Please feel free to drop me a line and tell me what you're reading.

What a week it has been!  It's been a roller-coaster ride here in California.  We were all set to open up school with a hybrid model, on Monday. By Tuesday, our county went to the most restrictive (Purple) tier, and our plans for opening up schools were shuttled.  On Thursday, Governor Newsom issued a curfew to try and stop the spread of COVID-19.  It's getting scary out there, so a curfew is fine with me.  Whatever we can do , I'm in.

This has been a week of anxiousness about the virus.  So, what's the cure for my worries?  Books, of course!

I've been reading a lot, and acquired some exciting books.

What I'm Reading Now:

What I Finished This Week:


New Books on My Shelf:


I'm most excited to read A Promised Land, by Barack Obama.  I received this audiobook for review from Penguin Random House.  But, it is over twenty-nine hours long! Oh my gosh, this is going to take a while!

As you begin your weekend, I wish for you rest, relaxation and health.

Stay Safe!

  1. Books are a great antidote to worry! Thank goodness we have them. It really is scary what's going on with the virus. I hope things go well there!

    I'd like to read Obama's book.

    1. I'm enjoying Barack's lovely voice! It's such a long book. I'm over three hours in and it has barely touched the surface! But, I think it will be worth the read. Have a great weekend.

  2. I am in line at the library for President Obama's book and can't wait to get my hands on it! We need his calming words now more than ever.

  3. I'm enjoying the Obama book more than I thought I would. It's really interesting to hear the behind the scenes happenings, and about how Michelle reacted to it! She was not on board with his Presidential run! Have a wonderful week.
