Sunday Salon- Recovery Mode


After a whirlwind five days in New York for Book Expo and Book Blogger Con, I came home late Friday night and spent yesterday (and plan to spend today) resting and reading. I shipped home three boxes of books from the exhibit floor, many for a giveaway I'll be doing as part of the upcoming conference of the New England Association of Jewish Libraries; my boxes should arrive on Tuesday and I can't wait to get them.

What did come home with me was the fabulous swag bag from Book Blogger Con- a stack of novels and other goodies I've been having fun combing through.

Of course the best part about all of this was the fabulous time I had with the great people I met. I'm going to write a fuller post about the week for tomorrow but for now I'll just say- wow. It was incredible.

Today? More resting, more reading. I think the cold I was fighting before my trip came back and I'm going to settle in to finish Jane Gardam's Old Filth, and then start The Vanishing of Katharina Linden. That's a short book and I expect to finish it quickly; I think The Frozen Rabbi has to be up after that. Naturally I'll keep you posted! What are you up to today?
