It's Monday and I am ready for some sleep!



Oh wow. (Coincidentally, this is one of our little girl's new favorite sayings...)

You know when you have a really long week and everything hurts? Yup. That was our week. It has been lots of fun, but it has just been one thing after another. I am hopeful that everyone will get a few good nights of sleep and maybe these next few days will be slower. 

How was your week?

  2. I just saw Gutenberg;s Apprentice at Barnes and Noble over the weekend , the cover caught my eye on the new release table. And Bittersweet looks kinda good, I saw a good review of that. Hope they're both great reads...

    1. I'm really appreciating the attention to detail in Gutenberg's Apprentice. Each chapter begins with one of those beautiful illuminated letters, just like the old handwritten manuscripts.

    1. Broken Monsters was good. I thought The Empathy Exams was great. It's the sort of nonfiction you wish everyone would read!

    1. Haha! My favorite thing is when they whine about having to wake up and you think, "You're telling me kid! I've already been up for an hour."

    1. The origins of printing are fascinating and I'm learning a lot about the politics and current events during that time.
