Sunday Synopsis: October 23, 2011

What a fabulous weekend I had!!  It all began yesterday, where I had the joy of participating in another local independent bookstore cruise.  I will be sharing all about my day later this week via the Walrus Report, complete with a whole slew of pictures!  As soon as I arrived home, I then headed right back out the door to attend a little Halloween carnival with my family.  Today, we picked out our pumpkins and then headed out to the zoo this evening for more Halloween fun!  Of course, that means I did not accomplish much the last couple of days and I am currently scrambling just to ensure that everything is ready for school and work tomorrow, but it was completely worth it!  I love this time of year and it is only just beginning!

On the reading front, I finished reading Deadline by Mira Grant.  I can't wait to share my thoughts on this one with you!  I started reading Bunnicula with my son and anticipate finishing that one this week.  I also began reading Hit List by Laurel K. Hamilton, my first experience with this author.

I will be traveling later this week, so I hope to get a lot of reading done.  The early part of the week, I have a number of things I need to get written, many of which I have deadlines for.  I am going to try to write ahead here for the site as well, but those with deadlines come first.  I already have a number of things written long hand, so it will all depend on if I can get them typed in time.

And, on a completely random note, I have been going through my TBR pile and am finally feeling like I should really be parting with a stack of books.  When the piles have begun to leak out of my closet and I no longer have room for just the books that I need to read ... my dear addiction then becomes the issue of the rest of my household!  With that said, what does it mean for you?  It means giveaways galore in the month of November!  Be watching for them!

That's it for this week!  Don't forget to share with me your reading plans for the week.  What are you currently reading?  What has been your favorite read for the RIP Challenge or the spooky season in general?


  1. You did have a fun weekend!!! I love stuff like that.

  2. I have been going through my TBR pile and am finally feeling like I should really be parting with a stack of books.
    I'm the same, Tif - I really hate parting with books, but I've learnt to be ruthless over the last couple of years, or there's no way I can buy any new books - I have no space left.

  3. Sheila (Bookjourney) ... Completely amazing and worth the late nights to come! :)

    Tracy ... I have finally gotten to that point. It is so sad to have to part with some books, but I have got to do it!
