Things have been quiet on the blog the last week or so. Partially because of what I’m reading and mostly because I’ve been a bit distracted.
My current nonfiction is pretty scientifically technical so it’s taking me a while to get through. I got a copy of Into the Black: The Extraordinary Untold Story of the First Flight of the Space Shuttle Columbia and the Astronauts Who Flew Her from S. Krishna’s blog and I’m enjoying it so far because I love space exploration books.
I started Jonathan Safran Foer’s behemoth, Here I Am and it’s… OK so far, I guess. It’s been 200 pages of domestic unrest, so I’m waiting for the big catalyst to happen so things pick up. We’ll see (fingers crossed).
Saturday we are hosting our big housewarming party, and preperation has been time consuming. We’re having a Stock Our Bar party, so bring on the wine and spirits! Payback for all of the baby showers I’ve attended over the years.
In book news, I was featured on Florinda’s blog in her Book Bridge newsletter. I promoted A Gentleman in Moscow because I loved it so… And I’m super excited that ShortMan agreed to bring it along during our Labor Day weekend retreat.
I bought two more bookcases last weekend. I don’t have a problem or anything…
