I had a glorious productive weekend at home.  Key words “at home”.  It seems like I never have weekends without commitments and I just had one!  I was able to read a book, listen to audio, work on blog posts, go out to dinner with friends, and today I cleaned out our storage room, filled a dumpster, shampooed our carpets, swept and mopped all floors, cleaned up my kitchen, fixed a plugged drain, and gave all three dogs a bath.

Yup.  I am a rock star.



Ok, enough about my tired head… here is what went down here this week:

Child 44 by Tom Rob Smith

Late, Late, At Night by Rick Springfield (ummmm… yeah.)

Charlotte Street by Danny Wallace

Movie Review:  The Raven (OOH!  Loved this!!!)

As for this week, its a busy week but here is what is currently true:  (click on covers to go to more info)

Leave it to me to find an audio really interesting only to find out it is tenth (yup tenth!) in a series!

I am on part two of this three part audio and really enjoying it.  I am learning  a lot!

This is a short 3 cd audio but very interesting!

That’s all audio.  As far as books I have a few to clean up so I am going to work on that this week. 😀  I am looking forward to seeing what you are reading!  Ass your what are you reading link below where it says click here!   And if you chat about this meme on Twitter be sure to use the hastag #IMWAYR

  1. Wow, you are a rock star to get all that accomplished in one day! Have a great week.

  2. Glad you had such a “stellar” weekend and a good week! I have to go check a review or two you linked. Hope you have another good week!

  3. All that cleaning! I could only handle one room!

    Happy Reading! And thanks for motivating me to really get into audios. I’ve found I love them, and that really started once I got back into this meme.

  4. Good luck with your week! I just read your previous posts and it sure looks like you’ll be quite busy!

  5. I thought I got a lot accomplished this weekend, but you are a bundle of energy.

    • I paced myself well Leslie – and listening to the book club book on audio really helped as I had to get that book done 😀

      • An audiobook helps make the mundane tasks go by faster but you already know that. 🙂 Like yesterday when I had to get all my plants inside and the yard ready for 50mph gusts and possible …ugh… snow last night. Something I didn’t want to do because it’s nicer to pretend snow is never coming back!

  6. Rock star? I reckon you’re Super Woman LOL. Enjoy your reads and have a great week 🙂

  7. Sam @ The Little Munchkin Reader

    I’m rather proud. Commented on 10 blogs today. Usually only do 2-3!

  8. Your weekend at home was very productive. You have so much energy! Enjoy your audios.

  9. Good gracious! Could you come and be productive at my house?! Have a happy reading week this week.

  10. What a great weekend for you! You must have been at it pretty late, because when I left my computer at 8:30 (10:30 your time?), this post wasn’t yet up.

    Enjoy your week.

  11. With the holidays fast approaching I’m finding even less time to read 😦 It doesn’t help there are a bunch of book/blogging events taking up my time. I list a few in today’s post if other bloggers are interested in participating in them.
    Girl Who Reads

  12. I’ve given my mother-in-law some of that quilting mystery series — I think she liked them!

    Have a good week!

  13. I don’t usually like audiobooks, but I’ve listened to some and I’m going to check out your “The Raven” review. Have a nice week.

  14. Sounds like you had a great weekend! It is a good feeling to be able to accomplish your goals too.

    I wonder if those quilter books can be read out of order. I think some of them are contemporary and some are historical. I haven’t tried that series but I know they are extremely popular.

    • HI Christina, I had no idea that this audio was int he middle of a series – it stood alone just fine for me… now I am curious if these characters were also used in previous books or if each one is about an entirely different story.

  15. Jennifer Chiaverini has a blog – – with a section Frequently Asked Questions. I was looking at it the other day since she has a new book. I read some of the books a few years ago – I looked at my list – it was in feb 2009. But she said that she wrote the books so you can read the books in the order that she wrote them, or they can be stand alone books. The books feature Sylvia and Sarah, the Elm Creek Quilters, or Sylvia’s ancestors if it is a historical book. I don’t have a blog, but enjoy reading yours and others.
    And could you believe that the Amazing Race was to be continued. . . will the guys find their passports? who will be eliminted??? I guess we will find out next week!!!

    You ARE a rock star 😉 I need that kind of motivation…sigh.

  17. WOW. I couldn’t do that much in a month! Good for you – productivity and books all in one weekend.

    Enjoy your books this week – and your clean house!!


  18. Ashley Montgomery

    Wow! You are one busy bee. You wanna pass some of that energy my way?

    I really want to read Steve Jobs. I’m glad you’re enjoying it.

  19. I have visited forty blogs!

  20. Rock star!!! I am tired just reading all you got done!!! 🙂
    Visited 10 blogs so far and have to tell you that I only have 3 states to go in my Where Are You Reading Challenge with books to read for them right here on the shelf. It is going to feel so good to complete that challenge! I may never do it again. lol

  21. Sometimes ‘at home’ weekends are the best kinds! Hooray for enjoyable audio books to keep you motivated 🙂

  22. that is a super-productive weekend! I sure feel happy after such a weekend…
    here is my post –

  23. It’s my first time actually making one of these Monday posts this week. It was a lot my effort than I expected, only just managed to get it in during Monday!

  24. I have Bruce Feiler’s other books, Walking the Bible and Where God Was Born,,,haven’t read them yet, of course…I need to get Abraham as well. Look forward to your thoughts on it. Hope you have a great week, Sheila. 🙂

  25. I had a relaxing weekend (always do), a hard week, but at least I finally finished a book! Yeay!
    Have a good week coming up – 🙂

  26. I gave up on the Steve Jobs book. Maybe I should try it on audio and I’ll finally get through it? 😛
