Good morning. It's going to be a tough day today. We stayed up too late enjoying Halloween and I'm quite tired today. My poor kids are probably going to be tired at school today too! But it was a fun night! C was Boba Fett and M was Tinkerbell, and they looked very cute. I dressed up like a witch and my husband was Frankenstein, and most of our neighbors didn't recognize us at first! I hope you had a fun weekend too!
I got some reading and reviewing done last week. I read the rest of On Writing by Stephen King and wrote my review. I had listened to the audio book on my road trip last weekend, but disk 3 of 7 didn't work. So I borrowed the book from the library and read those chapters I had missed. It was a great book. I especially recommend it to writers!
I also finished Tales from a Spanish Village by Richard A. Barrett. I haven't put up my review yet, but I will within the next few days. It was an interesting memoir. I also gave away a copy in my last blogiversary giveaway.
Finally, I participated in What My Child is Reading again. We read several Doreen Cronin books, as well as a few others that the kids enjoyed.
I'm currently reading Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator by Roald Dahl for the Birth Year Reading Challenge. I've also started The Kitchen House by Kathleen Grissom, which is my November book club selection.
My neighbor dropped off Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins last night, so it's going to be hard not to drop the other books and jump into that one! But I'm going to try to focus on the others first.
Thank you to everyone who participated in my blogiversary celebration throughout the month of October! I gave away three brand new books, four of my own books and $15 at The Book Depository. It was a lot of fun!
