Weekend Wrap-up is where I share my new books, as well as what happened here at (un)Conventional Bookworms and elsewhere in the blogoshpere. I’m linking up with the usual suspects, AKA Team Tynga’s Reviews and Caffeinated Reviewer.
Stacking The Shelves, hosted by Tynga’s Reviews and Reading Reality is all about the latest additions to my library – virtual or actual, with books that are bought, borrowed, won or ARCs I will (probably) be reading soon. Without further ado, here’s what I added to my bloated shelves this past week:
Thank you Harlequin and NetGalley!
Thank you Tantor Audio!
The Sunday Post #266 – Weekend Wrap-up
Kim @ The Caffeinated Reviewer, is our hostess with the mostest for the weekly Sunday Post where I’m wrapping things up. It is the perfect opportunity to share what happened here on my own blog, as well as some of the happenings elsewhere in the Blogosphere.
Another busy week here in Geneva, Switzerland. A lot of work, and some oral defenses for our students who are in the last year. We also received news of more Covid restrictions at my school, and the main thing is that teachers are no longer allowed to eat in the school cafeteria. We’ll have to find an empty classroom to eat in – alone. Because we aren’t supposed to sit together without our masks. I understand that they want to make sure as few teachers as possible will get sick, but it’s also hard for us if we can’t have any interactions with our colleagues during our lunch break.
On Wednesday, we watched the inauguration of Joe and Kamala, and we were very happy to see that everything happened without any kind of mishap. I became an instant fan of Amanda Gorman. I mean, she was spectacular, and her poem so very strong. I was so in love with her poem that I immediately started searching for a transcript to have my students read it, too, and I found not only the transcript, but a whole lesson plan as well 🙂
