Friday Reads 5/17/19

Well, my whole weekend schedule just got tossed around. I was originally going to work 3.5 hours today, 3.5 hours tomorrow, and 4.5 hours on Sunday which would have ended up with me being at work for some amount of time every day for 11 straight days. Well, our sub coverage for Saturday backed out. I said I would help out, but I have a teen team orientation to do Saturday. My boss said, come Saturday, take tomorrow off. So here I am with an unexpected day off in the middle of that 11 day run. Woohoo!

I have been reading. Yay!


Sherwood by Megan Spooner - In this Robin Hood retelling, Robin of Locksley is killed in Jerusalem during the Crusades. Marian, his betrothed, is broken by the news. That's as far as I've gotten. Guy of Gisborne is definitely after her. My understanding is that she becomes Robin Hood. Stands to be fascinating.


Spin by Lamar Giles - This is about a bunch of teen DJs in some urban area, investigating the death of one of their own. I'm excited about this one. I don't know why. That's literally all I know about it.

Works Well With Others

Works Well With Others by Ross McCammon - This is kind of mashup of a memoir and an essay on work etiquette and how to learn all the things no one teaches you about surviving in business. I'm reading it for the Read Harder Challenge to Read a Business Book.

That's what's on my plate this week. What have you got going on?
