An Update

Today I sent hubby and kiddo to California for 10 days to visit hubby's aunt. Unfortunately I don't have enough vacation time to go, so they'll be enjoying the Southern CA weather without me. And going to LegoLand and going to DisneyLand. :(

On the bright side, I'll have more time to read! I'm in the middle of The Beekeeper's Apprentice (I should have a review for you by the end of the week) but have been too busy to read more than a few pages a day - I can't wait until I can read without interruption!

I'm involved in several challenges whose ending dates are quickly approaching. Before Sept. 1 I still need to read Life Is So Good and Midnight's Children. Another ends on Sept. 21 and I need to finish Why The Wind Blows for that one.

Of course, I'm stuck in front of the TV watching the Olympics every night and LOVING it, so we'll see if I actually make a dent in my reading list before the family comes home ....

Enjoy your reading time! The weather in California is really nice right now. No smog! Your kiddo and hubby should enjoy it, but I am sorry you could not join them.

Hi Heather,
Thanks for visiting my new blog. I started it to keep my mom (in Michigan) up to date on family's fun!

Your blog is great - I need to tell Mandy about it. She's in a couple book clubs and I'm sure she'd enjoy the insight into all these books.

Have a great "home alone" time. Hope you can squeeze some reading in during the Olympics.

Enjoy that alone time! And yeah, the Olympics are totally screwing with my evening reading, but wow, what a fantastic distraction. I wouldn't trade watching Michael Phelps smash records, it's so amazing to watch him!
