Sunday Synopsis: October 17, 2010

Another week passed and another week closer to my upcoming trip out West!  In fact, this is the week for the trip!!  I leave later this week and am so excited!!  I still have a number of tasks to complete before I can get too excited, but I am getting closer!!  One such task is trying to decide which books to take with me!  How many and which ones should I take?  What happens if I end up reading through them all and I have to buy another one to get by?  Would that really be such a bad thing?!?  There are really probably much more important decisions to be debating at this point in time, but I do have a different set of priorities in mind right now!!  :)

What can YOU expect while I'm traveling and having fun?  I have some amazing guest posts lined up from fellow bloggers, authors, and book lovers!  All are perfect for the season of Halloween and I cannot wait to share them with you.  I am working on getting them all scheduled and I will be keeping my fingers crossed that they all get posted on time.  If not, I think that I will probably still have a chance to go in and post if the worst case scenario results!

Once I get back from this trip, I will be so excited to share some photos of my trip with you.  A few things that I have planned at this time (besides the meetings!) is a trip to Alcatraz, a tour of the city, and hopefully, the discovery of some little independent bookstores!  And, when I return, I'm also hoping for some rejuvenation and much more time on my hands to devote to my blogging and writing in general.  I have been doing some brainstorming on what needs to change this upcoming year, and though I have not yet found the answer, I do believe that I am getting closer and a little breather may just get me where I need to go.

Before signing off for the evening, here is a quick peek at the couple of posts that actually got published this last week . . .

How was your week?  Do you have any big plans this week?


  1. I'm just going to say it. You need a Kindle. If I traveled, I'd carry an eReader only.

  2. Ack! I didn't subscribe to this post.

  3. J. Kaye . . . I have such a hard time with these e-readers!! I love the feel and smell of good ol' books . . . but this trip may end up changing my mind for at least travel purposes!!

  4. What fun! Alcatraz is amazing. Have a great time... I'll look forward to the pictures and the recap when you are back.

  5. Suey . . . I am really excited for Alcatraz!!! I will be sure to take lots of pics and will post when I get back!! :)

  6. Have a great trip. I want to see pictures when you get back, too.

  7. carolsnotebook . . . Thanks! I did have a great time and have posted a few pictures!! I hope you enjoy! :)
