A long Columbus Day weekend lies ahead and I'm writing my weekly update a day early. Twin A came home Friday night for her fall break and we have a lot planned - typical fall activities Saturday a trip to the Saratoga Springs-area tomorrow to see my father-in-law (and admire the foliage), and hopefully some shopping on Monday. It seems like ages since I've been to the mall!
Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury
Finished this week:
The End of Your life Book Club by Will Schwalbe
I really enjoyed this audiobook. Will's mother was quite inspiring and I've added several books to my reading list. Review coming soon.
Starting Out in the Evening by Brian Morton
I loved Florence Gordon so much, I borrowed this 1998 novel from the library.
How the Garcia Girls Lost Their Accents by Julia AlvarezThis author will be speaking in Syracuse in the spring. The e-book is free right now if you're interested.
My Brilliant Friend by Elena Ferrante
I've been wanting to read Ferrante for a long time. The kindle version of Book 1 of her Neapolitan Novels is currently available for $2.99... and I love the cover.
On the blog:
Audiobook review: Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell

Tuesday Intro: Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury
In the kitchen:
We're in full "fall mode" now... soup in the crockpot, a chili-cornbread casserole, and the first pumpkin pie of the season. It's my father's favorite, so I surprised him with it Thursday afternoon.
How was your week?
