Sunday Salon


So it's been kind of a crazy week for me and I'm off to work soon, but that's okay because I'm looking forward to a return to normalcy. I didn't participate at all in Book Blogger Appreciation Week- it was a great idea and I know a lot of bloggers got a lot of traffic in response to this massive blog carnival, but with everything else going on I didn't have the time for it.

I went to a great library book sale yesterday though- just by accident. My husband and I were driving to Borders to spend some Borders Bucks when we came across a big street fair in a local suburb that always includes a massive and excellent library book sale. We got there almost at the end and the selection seemed pretty picked over but I still got three hardcovers I'm excited about- Steve Martin's Shopgirl, which I've wanted to read for a while, Light Fell by Evan Fallenberg, a recent Israeli release and Mother of Pearl by Melinda Haynes, which just looked interesting to me. I'm sure if I had arrived earlier I would have left with more.

So off to work soon. I've got two storytimes to do and some cataloguing. And today is the last day of summer! So I think that means I'll have to get some ice cream after. How are you spending the last day of summer?
