On our last trip, we discovered that her dorm is literally two blocks from the Strand Bookstore, and Shakespeare & Co. Booksellers is a few block in the opposite direction! She's thrilled, and I'm just a little envious. When you're taking a break from BEA and browsing the bookstores, if you happen to notice a tall redhead with her nose in something Austen-related, chances are it's Daughter #1!
I did manage to finish one book this week, Molly Fox's Birthday by Deirdre Madden, but am having a hard time gathering my thoughts for a review. For now, I'll just tell you I loved it and hope to be able to expand on that later in the week.
My next priority is The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton - our June book club selection. The audio has been on my ipod for the past two months, but I haven't managed to listen to it. For some reason, I haven't been listening to anything at all! My sister loaned me her copy, so maybe a combination read/listen will begin this week.
There are four more installments of the Wuthering Heights Wednesday read-along hosted by Jill of Fizzy Thoughts. The serial reading of Wuthering Heights seems to have fallen into my short story space, so Short Story Monday participation has been spotty at best the last month or so.
On the home front, end-of-the-year activities begin in earnest this week with the first round of concerts and awards assemblies. Twin A's school year ends June 4, but Twin B won't finish her Regents Exams until June 18. Let's just say she's not happy at the prospect of going to school for an "extra" two weeks!
We're also expecting more news about our retired greyhound, Zelda. She arrived on Saturday and we're anxious to hear how she weathered the long trip and how she's settling in with her foster family. If all goes as planned, we'll bring her home in another week or so.
There will be no reading for me today, but I hope you can spend some time with your current book. Enjoy your Sunday, and safe travels to all attending BEA!
