What I’m Reading: A Week in Review as NaNoWriMo Approacheth…. (10-26-13)

Mini Moe #2 and I are headed over the border today–to the Shaw Festival in Niagara-on-the-Lake to see Our Betters by W. Somerset Maugham. It’s kind of last minute–a friend had extra tickets. Their website says it’s similar to Downton Abbey, which we’ve both watched and liked…well, MM#2 liked it until she saw the season finale last year. Since then she’s been a little bitter; hopefully nothing like that will happen this afternoon. It’s recommended for ages 14 and up–fingers crossed that I won’t have to spend too much time covering her eyes. NaNoWriMo begins this Friday! Don’t worry–still plenty of time to…

Books on Sale! Barnes and Noble and Amazon Have Scary Stories on Sale

Barnes & Noble is having a Nook Book Sale on scary reads right now–it’s a pretty eclectic mix.

There’s even children’s books (a Berenstein Bears classic and Scaredy Squirrel, one of my favorites), middle grade books (like Ivy and Bean and the Ghost that Had to Go), and YA (Caroline Cooney’s Fatality). All together there’s 117 books–you’re sure to find something. They’re all under $5–many are $.99 and $1.99–so you shouldn’t break the bank too badly, at least. I’m considering picking up the Worst-Case Scenario…
