Book Mail Monday 3/20/2023

Happy Monday, book friends! And a happy Spring Equinox to my friends in the Northern Hemisphere. It doesn’t feel too much like spring here in Pennsylvania, not yet, but there are some plants starting to emerge in our yard, so I’ll take it.

I’ve been a bit scarce on the internet this past weekend, as my mom is in town visiting for my birthday so we’ve been out and about. Naturally, this included a trip to Barnes & Noble!

Not too much in the way of new books this week, but mom did buy me a cookbook I’ve been eyeing for a while, Oh She Glows: For Dinner. Mr. Your Book Friend & I checked this one out from the library a while ago and really liked the recipes we tried, so I’m happy to add it to the collection. Having vegan cookbooks around is a must because he doesn’t eat cheese and we try to only have one at-home meal a week that includes meat, so I’m always happy for more veggie forward recipes!

I also got a book-themed Kate Spade mug from a little boutique when we went shopping in a local small town, so all in all, a perfectly bookish birthday weekend.

Hope your week is off to a good start, and that you’ve got a great week ahead!

Happy Friday and a happy Saint Patrick’s Day, book friends! Today also happens to be my birthday, and my mom is coming into town to spend a few days with me to celebrate.

This week has been pretty chill, all things considered. I got some reading done, took a lot of walks, and sent off a couple of pitches. Even though Daylight Savings isn’t my favorite as an early riser, we did get to take advantage of having more light after work and go for an evening walk around the lake that’s nearby.

Azula loves getting visits from her grandma, so I’m excited to see her realize that grandma is here this afternoon. I’m also excited to show her the house and spend some time going shopping in the local area for the first time! Will I wind up with more books? Perhaps.

Anyway, that’s about all I’ve got to say about this week, so let’s dive in to the weekly post recap! But first, please enjoy this adorable photo in which Azula decided to lick my books while I was trying to get a Two for Tuesday post for Instagram:

In Case You Missed It

This week on the blog…

That’s all for this week, book friends! I hope you have a great weekend ahead!
