This week, we've got some big things happening! I've got students coming back to the university on Tuesday, so my days will be jam-packed with lots of student time . . . the reason I really do love my job! BUT, the most exciting piece of my week will be taking place tomorrow night. I am taking my son to his first ever author event!!!! He is very, very excited!! We will be seeing Mary Pope Osborne and Natalie Pope Boyce, the authors of the ever-popular Magic Tree House series! Originally, I did not think this was going to be possible, but all things seem to be falling in place and I am now bound and determined that we will be going. It has been far too long since I have been to a reading and I cannot pass up the opportunity to get my son excited even more about books!
In other news, this is what I posted this week in a nutshell:
- A (Non)Review of Only in New York, Darling! by Virginie Sommet
- A peek at where I stand on the Top 100 Children's Books
- An update (or two) to my Wish List
- My last selection of Fairy Tale Fridays with a look at the latest Disney tale, Tangled
This week, I've got a few things already planned, including a discussion post about book titles and wrapping up the Fairy Tale Fridays feature from this last year. I'm hoping to get a few more articles written, including a special announcement, but we will see what gets done. Afterall, Bloggiesta is coming up on Friday!!! I've got high hopes, but don't anticipate a lot of results until late in the week!
Will you be participating in Bloggiesta? Any other big plans this week?
Did your son enjoy his first ever author event?ReplyDelete
I got lots of reading done this week, I finished Wolf Hall (review to follow shortly) because our internet was out of action for three days. Which just goes to show how much of my time I spend online, but I didn't miss it, for a change it was my daughter climbing the walls because she couldn't chat to her friends on Facebook.
Tracy . . . He had a blast! We had to wait in line quite a bit, but it was fun nonetheless! I will post more about it soon! I don't know what I would do without internet! It would actually probably be a good thing! :)ReplyDelete
