Sunday Synopsis: August 7, 2011

Happy Sunday Everyone!

I feel like I've had a very productive weekend, and technically I've got one more day left!  I have decided to take a day off this week to spend with my son to get all his school shopping done.  This last week, I did the same thing with my daughter.  It was such a rejuvenating day to be able to spend some one-on-one time with my little girl, though I must admit that I was also completely exhausted because that girl loves to shop!  (I am in so much trouble for the teen years!!)  My son, on the other hand, is all business when it comes to shopping ... get what is on the list and leave!  Therefore, we are making a whole day of it and hitting a movie while we are at it too!  I cannot wait!!

In case you missed any of the past posts from this week, let me give you a quick flashback of the ones featuring some local indies that I'm particularly fond of . . .

And, what is coming this week?!?  I've got my exciting news that will be posting at some point in time tomorrow!  I need to wait until something else goes live before I share my post!!  Be watching for it!!  I've also got some more book reviews coming and hopefully, I will finally get my Harry Potter movie review written as well.

On the reading front, I finished In the Garden of Beasts by Erik Larson and am starting The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde this evening.  The latter I am reading with Kristen from We Be Reading, though I am a bit behind.  I am really excited to be introduced to Fforde's work.

Last, but not least, the winner of my Mary Pope Osborne giveaway did not contact me, so I have drawn a new winner.  Congratulations go to Sherri of Books and the Scientist!  I will be sending you an email requesting your mailing address by Wednesday, August 10th.  Looking forward to hearing from you soon!

Happy reading this week!!


  1. I hope you enjoy The Eyre Affair, Tif.

  2. I'll be looking forward to seeing what you thought of In the Garden of Beasts. I love Larson.

  3. Tracy ... Thanks! I've heard such great things about it!

    carolsnotebook ... I will be posting about it tonight before I go to bed! In a nutshell, Larson does not disappoint!
