So today is the book fair at the temple where I work- wish me luck, because we're going to need it! One of the vendors we worked with shorted our order by about 2/3 and we have very little to sell. What we do have is a small selection of adult fiction and kids' books, and a larger table of books that can only be special-ordered. The proceeds of this sale will represent our book budget for the winter.
My other reading-related task today is to get my new nightstand set up, which has bookshelves in lieu of a drawer. So I get two little bookshelves in my bedroom, for all that bedside reading. I finished Marie Antoinette: The Journey, which was my nightstand book for the past few months, and just started The Story of French. See a theme?
I have a small stack of have-to-reads that I'm working my way through, and I just found out the other day that I've won an ARC of Sima's Undergarments for Women by Ilana Stanger-Ross. Can't wait!
