First...thanks for all the great comments about commenting! It looks like the best place to reply to all of you is in my comment section, so that's where I'll be writing back. Make sure to visit once in awhile if you post something to me.
This weekend I spent a bit of time deciding exactly what books to bring to Florida (5 days and counting!). I decided to pack five, because my annual trip to Florida involved pretty much nothing but laying next to the pool or on the beach and reading. I also plan to stop whatever I'm reading next Tuesday when I run out and buy Will Grayson, Will Grayson. Uhm...are you as excited for it as I am? Seriously, I'm bouncing up and down right now thinking about it.
Here's the books I decided on. They're all obscure titles but come highly recommended from different places (and a few are from publishing houses where editors have my book).
I'm racing through Before I Fall so I have it done before I go. It's not hard to get through it fast, though, because it's awesome. Seriously. Go buy it now and READ IT! I think the best part is that it's long. I love getting into a good book that you don't finish in a few days. I like to spend some time with my books.
And how about this rocking bookmark my cousin's four year old son, Everett, made?
You can tell I'm a reader because my main squeeze and I looked at a house today that we're thinking of putting a bid on. I made him go into the library so I could check it out. Don't you know how important it is to have a good library near your house? This one is a block away from the house...a dream come true.
In other news...you can tell I only have four more days until Spring Break. I'm getting giddy and busting out the red glitter nail polish. I'm super conservative when it comes to stuff like nail polish, make-up, clothes or jewelry during the school year (my students notice everything), but I wanted something fun. I've been writing a lot lately, and I love how sparkly my nails are now when I type.
I hope your week is starting with something as great as sparkly nail polish! :)
