Fall is officially here! I thought it would never come. This week included some of our hottest temperatures of the month. It was well into the mid-nineties on the first day of fall. Thankfully, the weather broke on Friday, and this weekend has been gloriously autumnal: beautiful blue skies, cool breezes, crisp temperatures. It has been absolutely wonderful. Now, if only we could get some rain.
This week was relatively quiet, as people recovered from Book Blogger Appreciation Week. I got right back into the swing of reviews, sharing my thoughts of Infinite Days by Rebecca Maizel, If I Stay by Gayle Forman, A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving, and my beloved Dracula by Bram Stoker. Connor also shared his thoughts on Flawed Dogs by Berkeley Breathed. Lastly, I posited on one’s obligation to his or her employer versus following one’s dreams. Yes, there is a distinct theme going on with my reading right now. Fall means vampires, thanks to Carl’s R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril Challenge!
Are you going to the Great Lakes Independent Booksellers Association 21st annual trade show? It is being held in October 8 through 10th in Dearborn, Michigan. Jen from Devourer of Books and I will be there, reporting all the action. It’s my first trade show, and I cannot wait to check out all the action. We’d love to meet up with you if you attend!
With that, it is time for me to enjoy this weather and my Sunday afternoon. Have a great day and happy reading!
