Now you may think - what is she bitching about? 9 weeks? I work 50 weeks in a row every year - 40 hours, 5 days a week. Yup, I know. But the universe doesn't revolve around YOUUUUU. Helllloooooooo. This is MY blog???
At ANY rate - next week I teach one early morning class every day and I get the rest of the day OFF! How excited am I????? EXTREMELY excited! The kids are in school. The hubby is at the office. I'm ALONE for hours!!!
Now usually that means - catching up on housework, yardwork, grocery shopping, etc. etc. etc. And that is not so bad. I still don't have to gear up for the evening classes. I'm FREE every evening for the next 11 days!!! And I don't have to get up at 5AM for 11 mornings!!! In a row! Life is good.
So - I was at the public library yesterday and I ended up selecting 4 books which I added to 2 library books I was still hoarding at home. As I'm walking out of the library, I'm all excited because I found a book that one of my favorite authors put out last year and I didn't know it. Eureka!! I love Nicholas Evans!
Then I said to myself:
Now how am I going to get all these books read? Why do I do this? Check out a sh*tload of great books and then only have time to read 1?
And then it hit me! I'm OFF this week!
BOOKATION! Here I COME!!!!!
BOOKATION mission? READ READ READ!!!!!
these 6 books:
The Brave - Nicholas Evans
The Panther - Nelson DeMille
The Racketeer - John Grisham
The Secret Keeper - Kate Morton
A Week in Winter - Maeve Binchy
What? That's only 5 books?
That's because I wanted to tell you something. I am a huge fiction fan but I rarely read memoirs etc. I'm definitely an info junkie and I read tons of fitness, nutrition and lifestyle material but for some reason memoirs don't do it for me.
BUT, included in my 6 books, is a memoir called, The Little Way of Ruthie Leming. I have NO idea who Ruthie is. None! But the inside front cover summary was appealing so THAT book got added to the list.
I'll let you know how I make out! I am really looking forward to my BOOKATION!! Afterall...
And to all my Words With Friends and WordFeud opponents? If you don't see much action this week - you'll know the reason...
See you on the other side after my JOY-filled BOOKATION!!! Adios!!
PS - Did I tell you about all the books in my personal "library" I need to read?
