Before I get into the nitty-gritty, I have to share this with you. Yesterday was Daddy Janks’s birthday and to celebrate, we had this:
Carrot cake from scratch with store-bought icing. Delicious. Mommy Janks really outdid herself with this one.
This weekend, I realized that between college football, pro football and the return of my regular tv shows that I haven’t been reading as much as I used to. I’ve already read the Book Club choice this month (One Day by David Nicholls), so I went to my library and picked up a few books:
- The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot
- How Starbucks Saved My Life: A Son of Privilege Learns to Live Like Everyone Else by Michael Gates Gill
- Slow Love : How I Got Knocked Off the Fast Track, Put on My Pajamas for a Year, and Found Happiness by Dominique Browning
- Strangers at the Feast by Jennifer Vanderbes
After I returned from the library, I (of course) remembered a few more books that I wanted to read. I wrote them down and logged into the system Sunday and searched for them. Most of the books had a wait time, so I placed my requests – figuring by the time it was my turn that I would have made it through my current stack.
Nope! Yesterday, I received emails for two of the books I had placed holds on: The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins and The Sibling Effect: What the Bonds Among Brothers and Sisters Reveal about Us by Jeffery Kluger.
Guess it’s time for me to stop writing and get to reading! Expect a few book reviews soon 🙂
