Sunday Salon: February 2, 2020

Deb Nance at Readerbuzz has taken over running The Sunday Salon.

My life in books over the past week: 

Challenge progress 2020
  • Literary Escapes Challenge--This week: 1 state (TN) and 2 countries (Việt Nam and Czech Republic). Total: 10 states and 5 countries
  • Mount TBR Challenge--4 books read this week, 13 books total
  • Popsugar reading challenge--3 books read this week, 11 books total
  • Social Justice Challenge--1 book read this month, 1 book total
  • YA Award Winners--I have already read 5 of the 12 award winning books
My life outside books:
Last week started off with a three-day weekend, which is always nice. I spent my day off reading and going for a lovely walk to our Harbor with my dad.

Wednesday we began negotiations (I am the Chair of our teachers' union's negotiating team). This is always an interesting experience and will probably last a couple of months.

I've been listening on and off to the trial in the Senate and getting very frustrated with the partisan-ness of it all. I want witnesses and documents even though I know 67 Senators will not vote to convict. And Britain is now out of the European Union. What the heck is happening?! Now my British passport will be less useful. Sigh.
