Thoughts on books, family, and life in one impressive package.

Can you still feel the love?  Book Blogger Appreciation Week ended on Friday, and I’m still celebrating.  The love and affection throughout the book blogging community has been tremendous.  Not only did I add quite a few new bloggers to my Reader, I reconfirmed my belief that book bloggers are some of the most accepting, friendliest, supportive people I have ever had the opportunity to know.  Congratulations to Amy from My Friend Amy and her team for hosting this annual event.  You guys did a tremendous job this year!  Thank you for all of your hard work!

Speaking of congratulations, Billie Baker deserves a huge shout-out for winning my An Echo in the Bone giveaway from a few weeks ago!  Enjoy!!

Did you catch Connor’s Corner yesterday?  I was finally able to convince Connor to share his thoughts about books.  The child reads as much as I do, and I really want him to be able to start expressing his opinions about his chosen reads.  Since he has to write one book report a month for school anyway, I had a fairly easy job to convince him.  All I had to do was promise him the freedom to talk about whatever he wants on occasion (expect lots of Star Wars talk), he was quite eager to say yes.  I truly hope this enthusiasm will last.

This week will see me return to a regular schedule of book reviews, Inside My Brain, and whatever else crosses my mind.  I have officially recovered from my reading slump and have quite a few books to review.  I am firmly entrenched in the RIP Challenge, and my reading definitely reflects it.  To help me get in the spirit, I’ve even pulled out my fall/Halloween decorations.  I’m ready for the weather to permanently cool off so that I can start baking!  Mmm…pumpkin muffins, apple crisp, zucchini bread…

In the meantime, I have a soccer game to attend.  Have a great week, everyone.  Happy reading!
