It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (April 09): 04/09/18
Last week was a busy and weird week. My left for Europe with his Spanish honors teacher, five other chaperones and about thirty other classmates for Europe. They traveled from Milan, to Nice, to Monaco, and finally to Barcelona. He got home Sunday afternoon.
My daughter meanwhile was on spring break so she and I spent the week together. Monday she went to see Love, Simon with her best friend. Tuesday we went kite flying. Wednesday she had three friends over for a picnic. Thursday we stayed home because I had to take my neighbor to the doctor because her friend couldn't. Friday it rained all day so we stayed home.
Tuesday you might have heard about the shooting at YouTube. My husband was in the building across the way. He wasn't affected beyond having to evacuate. He ended up having to leave his car over night and ride BART home. As you can imagine everyone there is still rattled.
On Saturday my Mother drove up from San Diego to see us. Sunday we did Easter so that she could participate. We dyed eggs and hid them for my daughter. She's getting a little old for it but still had fun.
Decided not to read:

Tuesday last week was weird to say the least. Fortunately things seem to be back to normal. Our son is home now and dealing with jetlag and a full schedule of classes.

That shooting was too close for comfort, wasn't it? I'm getting leery of any crowded situation, too, like movie theaters.
Enjoy your books...and your week sounded good.
Here are My weekly updates

By the time I heard about it, everything was over except for the investigation. But it was still terrible for my husband's colleagues who do work in that building.
Comment #5: Monday, April, 9, 2018 at 11:36:50
How scary that your husband was so close to the shooting.
Comment #6: Tuesday, April 10, 2018 at 22:01:00
Close and yet far at the same time.
Comment #7: Monday, April 09, 2018 at 11:49:09
Sounds like an incredibly busy week. And you still found time to read. Amazing! Come see my week here. Happy reading!
Comment #8: Tuesday, April 10, 2018 at 22:09:00
I mostly read picture books and graphic novels. Short, quick reads.
Comment #9: Monday, April 09, 2018 at 18:58:10
Wow, you’ve been busy. I’m glad your husband is okay. The trip to Spain sounds like fun. I hope you have a great week!
Comment #10: Tuesday, April 10, 2018 at 22:14:00
My son says the he Europe trip was fun but exhausting.
Comment #11: Monday, April 09, 2018 at 22:15:29
Oh, that is a pretty rattling experience! And some pretty great books! Thanks for stopping by! Happy reading!
Comment #12: Tuesday, April 10, 2018 at 22:14:00
I feel a little out of synch with my reading. I hope this week ends up finding a better grove.
Comment #13: Monday, April 09, 2018 at 22:36:03
Wow! You and your family had a very busy week. Being so close to a shooting must have been so scary for all of you. It seems nowhere is completely safe anymore. So sad. It's nice to have an escape in books.
Comment #14: Tuesday, April 10, 2018 at 22:22:00
I'm not good at escaping into books and my reading groove was definitely off last week. I padded things with some picture books.
Comment #15: Monday, April, 09, 2018 at 23:26:19
I am glad your husband is OK. It sounds like you have been very busy. Your daughter is lucky to have a mom who does so much with her.
Comment #16: Tuesday, April 10, 2018 at 22:24:00
We enjoy each other's company. I do also spend time with my oldest but he's less willing to share what we do.
Comment #17: Tuesday, April, 10, 2018 at 02:27:20
L. Frank Baum: Creator of Oz by Katharine M. Rogers looks perfect for our current reading theme. Will check if we have it in our library.
Comment #18: Tuesday, April 10, 2018 at 22:27:00
I'm reading it for my road narrative project. While knowing an author's intent isn't necessary to do a deeper reading of a narrative, it can be enlightening.
Comment #19: Tuesday, April, 10, 2018 at 06:18:24
Wow, you sure did have a busy week. How scary with your husband being across the street from YouTube. Glad he is alright. Your books all look good. I've been wanting to try the Susan Wittig Albert series. That looks like a good one. Have a great week!
Comment #20: Tuesday, April 10, 2018 at 22:27:00
I think I'm done for now with the China Bayles books. They just don't work for me. It's a popular series and there are still new ones being published. But right now it and I aren't agreeing.
Comment #21: Tuesday, April 10, 2018 at 06:45:32
A nice collection of books to read!

I am glad your husband is safe. What a scary experience! I couldn't believe it when I saw the email.
What a great week you had with your daughter. What a trip your son took! That is such a great opportunity.
Comment #24: Tuesday, April 10, 2018 at 22:41:00
Last Tuesday was surreal. But everything is back to normal now.
Comment #25: Tuesday, April 10, 2018 at 15:08:52
Oh my gosh!! I am glad that your husband is ok - how terrifying. This world can be so scary sometimes. :(
I really need to read The Phryne Fisher books. :)
Comment #26: Tuesday, April 10, 2018 at 22:46:00
I'm slowly working through the Phryne Fisher books. I'm in no immediate rush to finish the series.
Comment #27: Wednesday, April 11, 2018 at 01:23:43

Comment #28: Tuesday, April 10, 2018 at 22:49:00
I'm trying to stay more current with my reading this year.
