Happy Weekend Everyone
Hi Everyone....I've been a bit preoccupied this week? Can you guess why? Yup, Boston versus Detroit playoffs and as of this typing.....Boston is up 3 wins to Detroit's 2 wins. A win for Boston tonight means that they'll be in the World Series against St. Louis. But, if Detroit wins, we need to play another 8pm ET tomorrow.......fingers crossed Boston clinches our spot tonight.
We are having a playoff party tonight - for us fans as exciting as the Super Bowl for some. GO BOSTON!
Past Week: Short work week last week, off Monday and Tuesday, and a workshop Thursday made for a easy breezy week. I finished The Goldfinch; Donna Tartt (loved it-no review yet), and have started the audiobook: Night Film, Marisha Pessl. I am really hooked. I also have the hard cover from the library as there are some fascinating illustrations that go along with the story - so this is a read and listen experience.
I finished the RIP VIII Challenge this week by completing my 4th book, Bellman & Black, but I'll actually end up finishing a 5th book, Night Film, by the 31st of October...I hope. I also need to review the latest Europa Book by Elana Ferrante, The Story of a New Name - book 2 of a trilogy.
Oh, and if you recall my iPod saga of last week, I am happy to say I found IT!!!! It was tucked safely away in the bottom drawer of my night stand, having forgotten I put it there....whew.....I started listening to The Age of Miracles; Karen Thompson Walker, it's really good so far (great narrator) - have you read this one?
Sunday Plans - read a bit, make dinner, and just hang out and relax
