It’s Monday! What Are You Reading, is where we gather to share what we have read this past week and what we plan to read this week. It is a great way to network with other bloggers, see some wonderful blogs, and put new titles on your reading list.
Other Than Reading...
After days of spring-like weather, winter made its return to southern Minnesota. Early in the week the forecasts had us on the edge of the coming storm. Later in the week the forecasts moved it right over the top of us. In anticipation, our Superintendent called off school for Friday in the middle of Thursday afternoon. When I went to bed Thursday night, nothing had happened yet. However, I woke up to at least nine heavy, wet inches of snow. Fortunately, our snow plow crew had us plowed out by 9 AM. They kept saying that we would have a second wave of snow starting mid-afternoon but nothing happened at my house until after 4 PM when we started having snow showers of big puffy snowflakes. The wind picked up a little then but we didn't have anything approaching a blizzard at my house.
It was nice to have a day off and to find out about it before a 6 AM phone call. But now I have to find a way to make up the 7 1/2 hours I wasn't at work. I can make up 4 from home but have to be in the building to make up the rest. I still have a couple of hours to make up from our last snow day too. I have run out of things to plan. My grading is up-to-date. I am at a loss for things to do. I may just find a book for professional reading and spend some time doing that.
I used my extra day off just to relax. I did a little bit of reading but mostly lounged on the couch playing computer games. I guess days like that are needed too.
Read Last Week
Shadow Run by AdriAnne Strickland and Michael Miller is science fiction of the space opera variety. Qole and her crew have the dangerous job of mining Shadow. Nev is sent to persuade (or kidnap) her and bring her to his home planet so that her special abilities can be studied. There is love, adventure, danger, and intrigue in this start to a series. My review will be posted on March 23.
100 Hours by Rachel Vincent is my current read. It will be released on March 28.

One Black Rose by Maddy Edwards was discovered in my daily BookBub newsletter. This paranormal romance sounded good. It was also free which is always nice.
