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…

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…

What I’m Reading: Week in Review (9/21/13)

It’s official–fall is here. I’d be more bummed, except that in this case it means we’re that much closer to the day we leave for the Baltimore Book Festival! Yes! It’s almost here! We’ll be spending this week packing, doing laundry (thank goodness for audiobooks!), and planning which talks and workshops we want to go to…oh, and school, of course. Can’t forget school. Though sometimes we’d like to–especially during the week of Parent Information Night. I’m going to really earn those personal days this week. But I digress…. I read the two books in Sarah Mayberry’s Matthews sisters series–Her Favorite…

Baltimore Book Festival–It’s Coming! (And We’re Hopefully Going!)
