Library Loot (Firework Fun)
I'm hoping to get a lot of reading done in July. Okay, I'm always hoping to find the time to read lots of books but maybe this time I will actually do it. The weather is usually at its hottest and this is my lull in between the kids' activities. Before I know it there will be school to prepare for and football/soccer practices to go to. I'm thinking I need to enjoy the peace and quiet while I get it :)
I slipped into the library the other day when I got off work because I was getting low on library books. Ha! You heard that correctly: I was actually getting low on library books. I only had like two unread which is unheard of for me since I'm kind of a library book hoarder. But with their summer hours being shorter I haven't been able to visit as much as I would like. It was a fast visit since I was tired from work but I managed to come home with some books that I'm super excited about. My only complaint was the two books I really, really want to get my hands on were checked out already (of course). I have a feeling it's going to take a bit before I can check out S.J. Bolton's Lost and Stephen King's Joyland. I should probably just put myself on the holds list for both of them but I haven't yet. Here is what I did find to take home with me instead:
Good stuff, huh? I'm looking forward to reading all of these but I'm definitely starting with Simply Irresistible. I've wanted to read this one every since Staci told me I should and I just keep putting it off. No longer! This seems like it will be the perfect summer read and I can't wait to begin. What books are you waiting to get from the library???
Tomorrow is the 4th of July so I will be offline all day. I'm looking forward to some fun in the sun, the parade, and a few fireworks. I hope that you all have a wonderful day as well. Happy 4th!
