Stacking the Shelves 98

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews, every Weekend. This is to share books I have acquired from various sources. Physical books & ebooks both are welcome. If its something being sent to me by mail, I will not mention it until I actually receive it. 
So here is most of January's books I got.  Few more, plus the final swaps I will ever make on bookmooch but I will share those hopefully next time.  I was really sick all week and still not doing well.  
On the plus side, I was able to start participating int he famous ostpsecretsister!   Very excited about that and spent hours looking into my new sister and learning about her and her interests.  So that is where most of my time has gone.  

I finally started writing up posts and reviews again, so expect to start seeing those again.  Keeping posts limited so I *hopefully* don't have any more dead weeks.  Still, lots more stuff to catch up and share.

Task in Tuesday-Week 4 of 2016

Task it Tuesday For a bit about what this is go check out Michelle at Because Reading or to understand what I am setting this up as check out my first post.   Basically if I have it crossed off, I finished it this past week.  Items in red are a week old and now "past due."  I Spaced a bit under each category before adding new tasks for the week.  Old tasks carry over until completed.  The exception is the fun spot at the bottom.  Those aren't red as there are no expectations for completion.  Just a stronger focus over other fun things.

This was not my week.  I didn't do one iota on my blog.  I did visit a few others and was social on twitter but blog posts or improvements? Nope?  Housework projects? Nope-barely kept up with the basics. I have come down with a nasty, nasty cold that has led to bronchitus.  I feel crappy.  So I have been lazy.  To top it off, crazy weather has my sinuses not knowing how to react so I am stuffy as heck ans since on antibiotics I can't take anything for the sinus issues!  Gah!! So lazy week, not much has changed since the last post.

This month, I want to continue to focus on my "spring cleaning,"  hopefully moving out toward the yard and basement soon.  Also, in reading my focus is shifting to finishing older books I have started but never finished (usually because I have had to return them to the library and never checked them back out.  Well, I want to get them finished this month!
