Friday Update

What a slow week here at arch thinking! Between last weekend's busieness (which meant I couldn't pre-schedule my blog posts) and this week's ickiness, I hardly posted at all. I did, though, get some good reading time in and I, of course, found time to go to the bookstore and stock up. What did I bring home this week?

First, I bought the third book in Jasper Fforde's Thursday Next series, The Well of Lost Plots. As you may recall from my review, I really enjoyed The Eyre Affair and then thought Lost in a Good Book was good but didn't quite live up. My sources tell me that The Well of Lost Plots is a real return to form, though, so I am looking forward to reading it.

One of the other books I picked up this week was Gringos in Paradise: An American Couple Builds Their Retirement Dream House in a Seaside Village in Mexico. Its good to know that we're not the only ones who fantasize about packing it all in and moving off to a warmer, cheaper climate.

I will be away this weekend, so I expect I'll get lots of reading and very little blogging done. Have a great weekend and I'll see you back here on Monday!
