The Sunday Salon: It's Crazy

It's been a crazy week... CRAZY I tell you!

Blame that on the book fair, which happened this week. Add in my little 12 hours of part time work at the library, and that equals crazy. On the day that I didn't work at the library, I ended up doing book fair nearly all day. But, it after all was said and one, it was the best book fair we've ever had if the money taken in is any indication. So, high fives all around!

Anyway, that means though that not much else happened for me this week. Like reading. I continued with Brisingr as often as possible. I'm about half way through it (when I really should be done with it by now). So today, for the rest of my lovely Sunday, that's what I'll be doing. Along with watching Amazing Race. And maybe picking the pumpkins which we never managed to get to yesterday and now it's snowed on them. And maybe baking cookies which we always seem to do on a Sunday afternoon. Oh, and I rented a movie I wanted to watch... and then of course there's the nap too....

Another thing I'm blaming on the book fair is the fact that I am so behind in reading blogs! And that's just going to get worse because THIS week is fall break and we are heading out of town. To Disneyland actually! So... all those blogs you all keep writing will just keep piling up in my Reader. Some day, I'm going to get caught up! Yeah, right!

Last night, I took some kids and saw the movie The City of Ember. They did a pretty good job sticking to the book for the first half, but then it all fell apart the second half. I still enjoyed the movie just fine though. But it always makes me wonder why they change things around so much. I just don't get it. Oh, well.

My reading plans for this week, besides finish Brisingr, is to read The 19th Wife. I'm a blog tour stop on Friday the 24th... so really, I need to get this read ASAP!

I have a feeling the craziness is going to continue, even without the book fair!


  1. Can an 8 year old see City of Ember? I've thought about taking my two, but not sure. We've not read the book but the movie looked good (never heard of the book before the movie trailers - doh!).

  2. It does sound like you had a crazy week! I am glad the book fair went well. I wish I could have come. :-)

    Have a great time on your vacation!

  3. Michele: I would say yes an 8 year old could see this movie. There's a monster thing at one part (which isn't in the book by the way) but it's really not that scary.

    Literary Feline: I wish you could have come too! And thanks about the vacation. I hope it really happnes! :)

  4. you crack me up ... have fun in disneyland! And by the way, thanks for the inkheart trailer - I LOVE Brendan Fraiser, it made my night! ;)

  5. Happy new week and have fun in Disneyland and reading when you get a chance!

  6. have a good trip and no worries about catching up. I'm sure you'll get to my posts eventually. I get behind sometimes too. I think we all do!
