Friday Update

That whole posting during vacation thing isn't working out so well, is it? Oh, well. It doesn't matter. I had a fantastic week at the beach and now I am home for a few hours to unpack, repack, and head back out for the weekend.

As you may imagine, in between our beach activities, I got in a lot of great reading time. In addition to reading multiple whale books to my 3-year-old nephew (that's his current obsession), I read another of Charlaine Harris's Sookie Stackhouse mysteries, The Middle Place by Kelly Corrigan (which caused me to sob at least once), The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss, and The Book of Unholy Mischief by Elle Newmark (part of a book tour for later this month).

We also went to a book sale last weekend and I picked up two new novels for our library: Prince of Darkness by Sharon Kay Penman (from the Justin de Quincy mystery series - see my review of The Queen's Man) and March by Geraldine Brooks.

More reviews next week, and some information on our vacation, too. In the meantime, don't forget to enter my Blog Birthday Giveaway!
