Morning Meanderings…. The beginning of a CrAzY Two Weeks

meme

Monday.

And here we go.

Today we start setting up for the spring book sale.  Today as in ummmm…. in about an hour.  We are excited to be moving it to the local mall which has a large open space for us use for the sale so our books and our patrons will not be crowded.  It is exciting but also a lot of work. 🙂  We will continue to set up through Wednesday and official sale dates are Thursday – Saturday…. Sunday we will offer a free day but “shhhhh” we are keeping that under wraps.  😉  I literally19 laid in bed last night and thought of signs that I need to make, how to set up our Friends Of The Library info board, the best way to move the books…..

Tomorrow is book club, here at my house.  We are reading All The Birds In The Sky by Charlie Jane Anders.  As yesterday was beautiful here in Central Minnesota, 50 degrees, I switched to audio on this one so I could listen while I cleaned the garage and the back deck.  More on that later this week.

Coming out of the book sale will have me running right towards the Gatsby Gala which is a week from this Friday on the 18th.  That too is coming together well and I am hopeful that this weeks sale will assist in promoting the Gala.  This event is an idea two years in the making and seeing it come to reality really means more than I can say here.  Later today I will look at 20’s style costumes for the event.armchairaudies-300x300

In other news, I signed up to take part in the Armchair Audies this year and I am super excited about the audio books I will listening to.  I will be judging in the Non-Fiction and in the Humor categories.  Check out the website and you too can be a judge if you would like!

 

Is Spring coming your way?  Is this a season that you read more or less?  Do you turn to audio more during busy times?

  1. Wow, you are one busy lady! The library is lucky to have you. Spring is here for sure – 70s all week – but I suspect we’ll have one more cold snap before all is said and done.

  2. Sheila, they couldn’t ask for a better judge for audio than YOU, that’s for sure 🙂 Nice to see you’re excited about all this wonderful stuff 😀 😀 😀

    • Busy, busy, busy.

      The sale should be much nicer in a larger area. Have fun at your book club.

      Armchair Audies sounds like something you will be terrific at judging.

      Have a wonderful week.

  3. I can see how audio would work more for you, as you tend to clean more and do more outside your house than I do…LOL.

    Once upon a time when I commuted every day, it might have worked for me.

    All the Birds in the Sky looks good…love that cover!

  4. It sounds like a nice busy week for you. Book sales must be hard work but to recycle used books into other readers’ hands must be so satisfying. And your book club pics and news are always fun to read. Enjoy the next few days, Sheila and then relax with your own book!

  5. Happy Monday, Sheila! The Gala sounds like much work, and much fun! I wish I listened to more audio books. I did listen to a bit of one this weekend, while we were driving, a Ken Blanchard audio via Audible, Refire!. Have a great week!

  6. Just reading about all you do, exhausts me. Have a wonderful week.

  7. Maybe one day I will do the Armchair Audies! Unfortunately the US exchange is HORRIBLE at the moment and I put Audible on a hiatus at the moment until it doesn’t scare me. lol

    I am deaf so no audio for me but I do get outside and read in the spring and summer.

  9. I am so glad you signed up for the Armchair Audiies. 🙂
