My first ever Jury Duty is due to start tomorrow – Sunday Post

I am due to start Jury duty on Monday so I have been working lots this week to make up for the fact that I wont be able to next. Mainly doing Covid swabs on cricketers and other associated professionals and driving all over the place. Hence the only books I have finished have been audio-books including one five star read (see below).

The weather has been pretty good, not perfect but good enough to get out and about, everyday. Things seem to be almost getting back to normal with even Gun club restarting.

Books Finished This Week - playlist script

Meet me in another life

by Catriona Silvey, Kristin Atherton (Narrator)

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Wow. I don’t think when I knew what this book was going to be about at all when I started listening to it. Thora and Santi keep on finding themselves in Cologne and living their lives all over again, time after time and only they remember. Why is the huge twist of the book and I’m not going to give it away but this isn’t the simple romance it might seen on the surface. In most lives Thora is gay anyway. It really touched me, and left me with a tear in the eye, despite the fact that I was driving at the time.

Invisible Women: Exposing Data Bias in a World Designed for Men

by Caroline Criado Pérez (Author/Narrator)

Rating: 4 out of 5.

This book predominantly made me angry but also with an edge of sadness at how little the feminist movement has come. The world is designed for men, and before reading this book I never realised how much so.

  1. Meet me in another life has a catchy premise. Good luck with Jury Duty! We don’t have that here in SA, so I always find it very interesting.

    Hope you get a few hours snugged in for some reading too!

  2. Invisible Women sounds interesting but I think I’ll pass on it for now, I’m not in the mood for that type of read right now. I will bookmark it in case I decide to read it later.

    I’ve never gotten a letter for jury duty but I think I’d like to do it, if it wasn’t for murder.

    I hope you have a great week!

  3. I do hope your jury duty goes well. My last jury duty was about ten years ago, and it left a bad taste in my mouth. Other jurors discussed the case outside the courtroom! Other jurors wanted to give a person something even though the hotel the person was suing had done nothing wrong! It was incredibly frustrating, but I held my ground and refused to cave in. Hope your experience is better.

    I like the look of Meet Me in Another Life. I’ve added it to my list of books to request.

  4. I hope your jury duty goes smoothly. My daughter was called up at the beginning of last year and has had four notices to serve but because the trials have all either been postponed or canceled she’s yet to actually do it.
    I still need to read Invisible Women

    Wishing you a great reading week

  5. When I had jury duty, I had a day or two of sitting around but was never selected. I read “Crime and Punishment” and Kafka’s “The Trial” to pass the time appropriately. My husband thinks they saw the book and disqualified me, but I would have been happy to serve.

  6. I’d attended a mock jury trial at the Boston Court a few years ago. It was an eye opening experience, and of course, that goes along with the movie 12 Angry Men. Hope things are going well for you and many happier reads ahead!
