The Sunday Post #10 – Weekly Wrap-up
Welcome to my weekly wrap-up post. I am signing up with Kimba over at The Caffeinated Reviewer, who is hosting this weekly event.
This week feels like it’s been going on forever! On Monday when I got home from class, I felt great, then suddenly my sinuses started hurting and I felt pretty sick instead. The rest of the week I’ve been fighting a sinus infection, while still having loads of things to do and no real chance for rest. I did manage to read some great books, though, so I guess that’s a nice bonus to a week that wasn’t the best ever.
I haven’t even started my Christmas shopping yet, and I really don’t have much time left. I need to make some time for that next week – but it’s also the last week of classes, so I just hope I won’t be too busy.
Something pretty great did happen, though! For my WoW post, I had tweeted a link to Lori Foster, as I featured her book Holding Strong, and look what she did:
She is going to send me a real ARC of Holding Strong! I have never gotten an actual ARC before, since I live in Europe, but she proposed to send me one, and didn’t balk at sending it overseas. I’m so excited!
Also, Friday was a special day in Geneva, because a little over 400 years ago the French from Haute-Savoie tried to overtake the city – and failed – and this is celebrated every year. People dress up and part (kind of like Halloween in the US) and we also have a big pot of chocolate with marzipan ‘vegetables’ inside because a woman was able to throw a huge pot of hot soup on the French soldiers to make them flee. Nowadays, with the chocolate pot, the kids break it with their hands while saying ‘This is how the enemies of the republic were defeated’.
