One week into the New year and I am still pumped up with motivation and buzz. I have been making goal tracking spreadsheets not just for me but for friends as well.

In case you missed the memo, I am a total spreadsheets addict who tracks everything from blog traffic to daily to do lists. Hit me up if you have any spreadsheet queries. 

On this episode of #SundayPost, I talk about my love for spreadsheets and about getting featured on the National Daily! What was your week like? Click To Tweet

On other news, my interview got featured in the UAE national daily Khaleej Times this Friday. Of course I spoke about books, in case you had the slightest of doubts about it. 


What I read this week

I finished reading One day in December this week. I read for the 2020 A to Z reading challenge and ticking off the January mini challenge hosted by Ginger Mom and Company.

What I watched this week

I watched Toy Story 4 (finally) and I loved it, as expected.

I have not watched TV or Netflix in a while, so that may be a good thing I guess.

On my blog

In case you had missed, here is a quick recap of what I posted on my blog this week.

    Congrats on the feature. Great way to start the year. I still need to get round to watching Toy Story 4 too.

  9. Stormi

    I need to get around to watching Toy Story 4!

  10. Mandi S

    Ah such a fun feature! Congratulations! Also I still have not seen Toy Story 4 and feel like my Disney card has to be revoked because I’m so far behind.

  11. Whispering Stories

    Congratulations on being featured in the papers, it looks so good.

  12. Sim @ Flipping Through the Pages

    Congratulations on the interview, Gayathri. That’s amazing. The Hate U Give is one of my favorites too. I am yet to read Atwood though. And I love spreadsheets too 😀

  13. Aj @ Read All The Things!

    Congrats on the interview! I love spreadsheets too! I only use them for tracking my reading and blogging stats, though. I use notebooks for everything else. I hope you have a good week.

  14. Literary Feline

    Congratulations on the feature! I really like the quote you shared as your favorite. I grew up reading the Calvin and Hobbes comic stripes that came out in the paper every day. My husband has a few of the collections. I adore Calvin. I have yet to read The Virgin Suicides. I did read the author’s Middlesex and quite liked that. I will have to check out his earlier book.

    Spreadsheets are addicting! I think it’s great that you enjoy them so much.

    I hope you have a great week, Gayathri!

  15. Shelleyrae @ Book’d Out

    Congrats on the interview.
    Spreadsheets are hard, though it might make tracking my challenges easier.

    Wishing you a great reading week

  16. Jennifer | Book Den

    I love spreadsheets! My problem is I can’t keep up with updating them. 🙂

  17. Sam@wlabb

    OMG, you’re famous! How wild to see yourself in print. I love it! I feel like my daughter and I are outliers. We watched Toy Story 4 on our cruise, and I had to stop her from throwing popcorn at the screen. The ending. It just seemed to go against the whole TS philosophy – no toy gets left behind. I hope to read your thoughts on One Day in December. Gosh! I loved that book. Thank you for sharing my post. XOXO

  18. Nicci @ Sunny Buzzy Books

    One Day In December is on my TBR so I’m glad to hear you enjoyed it. Congrats on the interview and I hope you have a good week!

  19. Greg

    Congrats on your interview- how awesome!! I love Calv and Hobbes!

  20. Andreea

    Congrats on the feature! Love your love for spreadsheets – I do to make of them at work to incorporate them in my daily life too (except for the budgeting one).

    Have a lovely week!

    • Gayathri

      More power to spreadsheets!

    • Nadene

      Congrats on your feature.
