Hey there, everyone. It's good to be back. I am happy to report that power was restored to our neighborhood on Thursday night. Thank you to all of the people who have been working around the clock to bring power back to the East Coast. And thank you to all of you who have been sending prayers and good thoughts our way. You are the best.
After we got the power back, we shifted gears and have been working with our church on hosting a big spaghetti luncheon for everyone who is still without power or who cannot live in their homes right now. We are also hosting a coat and blanket drive because temperatures here are plunging quickly and without heat, it's really dangerous for a lot of people around here.
In the midst of everything, I did manage to get quite a bit of reading done. Some of it was by candlelight, which sounds novel but is more difficult than you might think! Here are the books for this week:

Hey everyone, we are still here!

What are you reading this week and how are you doing after the storm?
Glad you are safe. Wonderful to hear you immediately started to help your community and still got reading done, great stuff.ReplyDelete
Thanks so much. We didn't have a fun time of it, but it's terrifying to know that people are sleeping tonight without power in 30 degrees and that entire towns are under water.Delete
Good to hear you're doing well in the aftermath of the storm. My favorite book was Suite Scarlett by Maureen Johnson Please come see what I'm reading now.ReplyDelete
Thanks so much!Delete
Reading books by candlelight sounds romantic and sweet, but I have the feeling that it's anything but ;) So glad you are safe and sound! I've been thinking of everyone in your area and hoping that things get back to normal soon!ReplyDelete
It was kind of sweet on the first night, but by the third it had lost some of its charm. Thank you so much for all of your concern, Jennifer.Delete
I'm impressed you got anything accomplished. I suspect I would have been too stir crazy and jittery to read a thing.ReplyDelete
There wasn't too much else to do in the dark and cold!! I hope you have a great week.Delete
People of the Book is always popular at my library. I haven't read it myself but it does look pretty good. Hope you enjoy!ReplyDelete
