Week in Review: What I’m Reading (and didn’t have time to read–because, hello–Baltimore Book Festival! 9-29-13)

  Well, the Baltimore Book Festival is over, and we’re on our way back to the real world again. Sadly. But we did have an awesome time, talked and listened to lots of interesting people, and increased our TBR piles by…well, a lot. (That latter bit is a good thing, right? I’m going to say yes.) So…not a ton of reading got done last week, but I’m planning on playing catch up on the long train ride back. As soon as I finish my post, that is. I read and reviewed Ivy Entwined by Laura Simcox, a new-to-me author who I plan…

Baltimore Book Festival Day Two: A Super Day–with Books!

I’m exhausted. All of this traipsing around Maryland, talking about and listening to other people talking about books is draining. I want to get the day’s events down before I forget them all, though. Hopefully I’ll do better tonight than last night–I kept mixing up which Mini Moe was which, and they both took offense. I did let Mini Moe #2 edit the post herself, which mollified her somewhat. But I’ve been put on notice for today, so I have to be more careful. Mini Moe #2 served as photographer today as well. I tried to take a picture by myself…

Books on Sale: Another Barnes & Noble Nook Book Sale!

  In case you couldn’t make it to the Baltimore Book Festival–or perhaps even if you could–Barnes & Noble is having another big Nook book sale this weekend! Apparently, there’s 300 books on sale altogether for 50% off. Many of them are fairly pricey regularly, so they’re not all super cheap, but there’s some pretty big titles here, including: Dr. Sleep, Stephen King’s latest and the sequel to The Shining, is $7.49      …and in case you missed it, The Shining is on sale too, for $3.99.   Rachel Gibson’s latest, Run to You, just came out on Tuesday, and it’s $3.99.    Mirror, Mirror,…

Baltimore Book Festival Day One: Fan Girl Alert!

  Let me start by saying that Mini Moe #2 decided a week ago that she needed her own distinct text ringtone on my phone. She picked her own–it’s called Sci-Fi, and it’s got a very eerie feel to it. One could say it’s very Twilight Zone-ish. The kind of ringtone you don’t really want to suddenly hear while you’re working all alone in your place of work that may or may not be haunted. It also stands out in a not-so-great way when you’re in a very small, quite busy, yet somehow quiet mini-mart in the heart of Baltimore’s…

Books on Sale: TFIOS is the Audible Daily Deal!

  John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars is the Audible Daily Deal today, which means you can get the narration of the full-length novel for only $2.95. I can’t say enough good things about Kate Rudd’s narration–really, she did a stellar job. If you haven’t read this one already, it’s a steal at that price. Even though it doesn’t exactly meet my “I really only want to read HEA” criteria, I still gave it 5 stars and an A rating. Plus, it’s due to be made into a movie soon–I’m a sucker for reading the book first. (You’d think I’d…
