Weekly wrap-up : number sixteen

The weekly wrap-up is my way of keeping my loyal readers informed of my bookish activities and holding myself to my bookish obligations. The questions may change slightly depending on the week.

Before I get down to the regular wrap-up, I want to apologize for my erratic posting this week. It's been a doozy of a week with one of my employees resigning on Monday and the other out sick for half the week. Needless to say, I've just been trying to not tear my hair out at work and haven't been able to give the blog the same level of attention as normal. I plan to be back in tip-top form soon though, so please bear with me!
