Weekly Reading Roundup

The week

This week, I had a lovely evening trip and meal with the volunteers from the school library. Every year, we’re invited to an evening out. We went to visit a fortification from the second world war where we had an interesting tour. After that, a nice organic meal (I order a Diet Coke to start with, oops!).

Also, it was the weekend of the 24 Hour Readathon! I read one book, but that was fine. I didn’t read for the whole 24 hours, but I tried to fit in reading as much as I could.

And another great thing is, that one of my customers’ book is ready and will be published at the end of the month. It’s in Dutch, a really fun YA novel.

Books I finished in the last week: 2
