My sister is coming to visit this weekend, so I'm sure my reading time will be curtailed.  For one thing, I have to get the guest room shoveled out so she has a place to lay her weary head!  As I've been unearthing the bed, I've discovered last year's Christmas presents--perhaps I need to make some decisions? 


My sister runs a house cleaning business, so I need to have everything clean enough that she won't insist on working while she stays with me.  Not that I would mind the help, but I know that she wears arm braces because of all the scrubbing that she does and I want her to save her effort for people who are paying her.  (Is it evil that I have actually marked off a couple of household projects in my mind that I will enlist her on if she insists on "being helpful"?  Neither should require any scrubbing, just re-organizing.)


But, back to the point of this post, these are the four books that I have out of the public library that have holds on them.  I've got a much larger stack of books beside my reading chair, but these four will have to get first attention.


Have a wonderful weekend!
