Sunday Salon hosted by Readerbuzz is simply a place for us to link up and to share what we have been doing during the week. Sunday Salon is a great way to visit other blogs and join in the conversations going on there.
So as cases are starting to rise I try to remain vigilant and calm since I work in the health sector and I have a kid in high school. Already we are seeing a need for workers because staff are getting sick. I've been solicited twice to work on the weekend. The second wave is coming and if we are to learn anything from history (such as what happened during the Spanish flu pandemic) the second wave will be worse than the first. So we need to be prepared. I'm currently reading 7 Keys to Navigating a Crisis and it's super helpful! It's very timely, having been published in April, right as the pandemic was gaining momentum.
I'm continuing to bike on a regular basis. I actually bought a bike rack for my car so that I can explore more bike baths further north or south of Montreal. Summer is dwindling and there are fewer good riding days so I'm taking advantage of being out as much as possible. It's a good way to exercise and de-stress!
And I got some great books this week that I'm excited about. I have some good reading ahead of me. Keeps my mind busy and entertained.
Hope you are all well. Stay safe and take care of each other.
Mailbox Monday Edition
Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week. Mailbox Monday now has a permanent home on its blog. Link up to share your MM.
Bought on Kindle:
It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. It's a great post to organize yourself. It's an opportunity to visit and comment, and er... add to that ever-growing TBR pile! So welcome in everyone. This meme started with J Kaye's Blog and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date.
What I reviewed and/or featured last week:
A collection of short stories that pack a punch. From one of my favorite authors.
This is the second book in the Henrietta and Inspector Howard series. And I enjoyed listening to this one too!
Stop by and enter my giveaways!
Also posted on the right sidebar.
Hope you all have a great reading week.
The book about pandemics sounds helpful! I picked up a book this week about the Spanish Flu by Emma Donoghue. Looking forward to reading it. Stay well, Laura.ReplyDelete
I hope Donoghue's book is insightful.Delete
I liked the new Emma Donoghue book a lot.Delete
I've been thinking about getting a bike. It would be a great way to exercise, but I'm just in the thinking stage :) 7 Keys to Navigating a Crisis sounds like a timely book to read. I hope you have a great week!ReplyDelete
I've loved biking since I was a teen. It's a great way to exercise and to be out in nature.Delete
I'm always thinking about the hard work of those of you in the healthcare field. Thank you so much for your work. I'm surprised that cases are rising. My husband said he heard that Canada had one day last week when there were no deaths.ReplyDelete
I need to get my bike out and ride it. I haven't because I usually rode it to the library or the track or the coffee shop, and now I walk to the library or track, and I don't go to the coffee shop. I miss my bike.
Tailwinds Past Florence looks like a great story. Florence is such a great setting for a novel.
Have a good week!
Depends where in Canada. The province of Quebec was the epicenter in spring and it looks like we're heading in that direction again.Delete
TEEN AGED looks good. I like the play on words, too. My Sunday Salon postReplyDelete
Yeah I think it's a clever title too.Delete
I have a bike in the shed which I really must use! Cases are on the rise here in Scotland, new lockdown restrictions come in to place tonight to stop people gathering - of course this weekend before lockdown people have been gathering en masse like idiots.ReplyDelete
Have a great week.
It's amazing how depriving someone of something makes them want it more!Delete
I've enjoyed Clare Mackintosh books. I'll check this one out.ReplyDelete
Happy reading this week, your books look good. The bike riding must be nice and relaxing.ReplyDelete
They've eased restrictions here in New Jersey but we're still staying away from people. My husband is back to work but I am still working from home. Stay well!
Our current state of affairs is why I won't let my daughter perform in person right now, as hard as it is. I hope that you are able to stay healthy. It must be so hard right now being in the medical profession. 7 Keys to Navigating a Crisis sounds like a very worthwhile book, especially right now.ReplyDelete
It sounds like you are reading some good ones right now. And look at all those new books! The Night Portrait looks really interesting. And I've read another book by Clare McIntosh and enjoyed it. I hope you enjoy all your new books and your current reads! Have a great week, Laura! Stay safe.
It must be hard for your daughter but better safe than sorry. :-)Delete
Oh wow that does look timely. And I too am worried. As we get into fall I'm telling myself to expect the worst and hope I'll wrong! Take care of yourself and stay safe! Your books look good and thank goodness we have those!ReplyDelete
The book on Pandemics looks helpful! Enjoy your reading and your week, and stay safe. Thanks for visiting my blog.ReplyDelete
sounds like you are doing the right things. i too worry about the second waveReplyDelete
sherry @ fundinmental
Your mailbox overfloweth! I like the looks of both those Italy books.ReplyDelete
yes well at least you are taking things seriously. Here in the US so many are stupid. We just stay home; my daughter is taking online classes. It's great you are getting out for some bike rides.ReplyDelete
Anne - Books of my Heart Here is my Sunday Post
Love the variety in your stash this week. Enjoy.ReplyDelete
7 Keys does look like a good read and timely. Lots of good new books too. I hope you remain safe. Enjoy the biking and reading!ReplyDelete
Fantastic mailbox, I also have After The End on my TBR. I purchased a bike just over a year ago and love going out (when I get the time). We live just below one of the UK’s top mountain bike courses so my hubby regularly goes out riding. Me on the other hand prefer a leisurely ride down the canal. I hope you have fun exploring new cycling routes, and stay safe.ReplyDelete
Leisurely riding is great too! Personally, I'm happy just to be able to get out and see nature while biking.Delete
LOVE Clare Mackintosh’s books.ReplyDelete
You are in for some good reading. Lots of good books.
I hope your week is going well.
