Building the Book Pile #257

Welcome to Building the Book Pile!  A Weekly meme inspired by Stacking the Shelves

Hello Readers, Bloggers, and Awesome people! 

It was a great week! Work was pretty slow which gave me reading (and viewing) time. I finished more of the Series of Unfortunate Events and watched the TV episodes. Then I took Friday off to go see my little sister graduate high school - she got her diploma AND the Headmaster's Citizenship Award! Which surprised the whole family - she is super smart and going to be studying at University of Vermont next fall! I'm excited she is staying close to home (and actually closer to me than our parents). It all makes me feel old too though.

A few things I have left out over the past few weeks are that I got myself a motorcycle 🏍 - yea.... I don't even know how to ride one yet but figured why not?! And Friday before the graduation I went to the DMV and got my Motorcycle Learners Permit 😳😬. 

It has been a weird exciting week - how was yours?! Share about your week with me in the comments below!
