Quick Sunday Update and the "My Blog Turned 5" Giveway Winner is.......


I've been on vacation since July 3rd and have yet another work-free week coming up. I'm so happy I squeak! Away for several days, meeting up with friends we haven't seen in a while, eating out a lot and lots of "books at the beach" , are on our agenda.  I have a couple pre-written posts scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday, but other than that, I'll catch up with your blog/life happenings were I have computer access later in the week.

Finished: The Burgess Boys; Elizabeth Strout (very good); Tenth of December: Stories;  (different but good) as well as several kids books -- reviews coming.  

Currently reading: The Woman Upstairs: Claire Messud and After Her; Joyce Maynard (both are excellent so far)

Watched: Mama (OMG - scare your socks off psych horror thriller )
and Life of Pi (loved it)

Enjoy your week everyone.
