After work on Friday, we dropped the kiddos off at Grandma and Grandpa's house and then headed back to our home with one sister in tow. We picked up another at the train station and then the sisters, the husband, and I went out to dinner. On Saturday morning, we got up nice and early and drove across state lines for my cousin's wedding. It was a wonderful wedding and it was made even better by the fact that my sister and her husband flew in for the occasion, which meant it was the first time we had seen them since May.
Oh right. Maybe you came here to talk about books. I finished A God in Ruins, read Royal Wedding, and finally got to Lumberjanes this week. I happened to see it on the shelf during a library trip with D and brought it home in a bag with his books. He came to find me a while later to thank me for getting him such a great book! I think he enjoyed reading Lumberjanes just as much as I did.
On the blog this week I joined in a Top Ten Tuesday where we wrote about the really hyped books we've never read, and reviewed Royal Wedding.
As of right now, I'm a little bit into The Shore and I'm thinking I will read The Last Bookaneer next. What are you reading this week?
The Last Bookaneer looks really interesting, and I almost got The Shore the other day for review.ReplyDelete
It sounds like a lot of fun, doesn't it? Why hasn't anyone written about literary pirates before?Delete
I have The Dante Club by Matthew Pearl, but I've never read it. Have you read any other books by him?ReplyDelete
I haven't read anything by him yet but I will probably dip into the backlist if I like this one!Delete
Thanks! The wedding was in this little Mennonite church, so that's where the picture was taken.
It always seems like you do so much!! I feel lazy sometimes compared to you!ReplyDelete
I loved Lumberjanes, one of my favorite books of the year!
Oh gosh, the sink full of dishes and I really appreciate that! I think everything is relative. :)Delete
Lumberjanes was a lot of fun. I can't wait to see what happens next!
Ah, love a good family gathering. We went to my husband's annual family get together this weekend. Good food, drinks, and company :DReplyDelete
Hooray for Lumberjanes, oh my gosh I loved that one. Can't wait for MORE!
Have a great week!!
They're really good at reminding you about the important things in life. I'm glad you had a nice trip too! :)Delete
