I decided that I would do a weekly recap, and link up with The Sunday Post, which is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviewer, that was inspired in part by In My Mailbox. It’s 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. This week was filled with appointments, pouring rain, and many good reads.

life outside the ‘net
This week was my first week back to work after being off 3 weeks for winter break. It was actually a pretty good week. My students seem more mature, and we got a lot accomplished. However, I was dead tired, passing out before 8pm most nights. While it was nice getting some sleep, I didn’t work on the site as much as I planned, and it took me forever to read my books this week. Considering all of that, I don’t have too much to report this week.
Aside from sleeping, I basically took care of my foot, which isn’t all that exciting. However, it has allowed me to put it up while I continue my The X-Files marathon. I’m finally on season 5. I hoped to be finished with it, and maybe part of season 6 by the time the show returns. Still wondering if I should keep going, and watch the new episodes On Demand or on Hulu after I finish season 9.
I’ve been asked by several people to see the finished product of my TBR Jar, so here are some photos of my masterpiece 🙂
