Hello there, and welcome to my book blog! I hope to become your regular book blog rest stop. I am a 40 (cough, cough) something bibliophile and busy mother of 2 girls, but somehow manage to find time to read!
"Are you going to Book Expo America (BEA) and/or the Book Blogger Convention (BBC) this year?"
Unfortunately I am unable to go this year... booo! I have never been but have heard it is just awesome!
I have just returned from the zoo and it is a gorgeous springtime day here in Calgary (finally!) and now we are at home having our sacred "quiet" time with sesame street and me on the couch with my kindle.
I have JUST bought the latest Melissa Fay Greene (author of There's No Me Without You-- which I am pretty sure every Ethiopian adoptive family has read!) called "No biking in the house without a helmet!" It is, so far, a hilarious take on parenting in general, but adoptive parenting in specific. She is bang on with her observations on being a parent, the good, the bad and the UGLY. Somehow when you read it you feel like, "Hey! I'm not so bad after all!" I can't wait to finish it to share my thoughts with you about it.
ANYway, off to have a very rare weekend that is blank on the calendar... thaaaat's right, we officially have NOTHING to do. NOTHING! And we are pretty damn happy about it.
Now I am off to do some hopping around the blogpsphere!
