Time is flying by! It's August already! ARGH! That means in just two short weeks I will go back to work. From now until then I have packed in a lot of different activities we have been meaning to do all summer that have just waited til the end.
I can also see my leisure reading time slowly dwindling right before my eyes. I still read a lot during the school year, but I have so enjoyed staying up late and reading and sleeping in a bit later, reading first thing when I get up. This week we are off to see my sister for a day. My mom always goes with us and we usually manage a trip to the zoo, Barnes and Noble and the mall. This year my oldest daughter also wants to see the state capitol, which shouldn't be too hard to do. Unfortunately, I am the driver on this trip, so there won't be any reading going on.
The only good thing I can find about it being August already is that the new IndieBound picks for the month are up, and there are several that look really good. While July was not a stellar reading month, I did get through lots on my never-ending TBR pile. Check out my reading list for the year.
Tonight we are having company for supper - a family that has three boys close to the same age as my girls, and a mom who likes to read as much as I do. I love getting together with them so we can talk books (and lots of other stuff, too).
