I finished reading Practical Magic by Alice Hoffman this week. This one was not quite what I was expecting, even despite the fact that I think I've actually seen the movie years ago. I'm curious to see how book club goes with the discussion of both!
I also started reading Use Your Words: A Writing Guide for Mothers by Kate Hopper. I've really enjoyed reading books about journaling these days, but I'm still not sure what I think of this one. I will keep you posted!
What did you read this week and what is up next?
This last week, I posted a review of The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky as well as a giveaway of The Killing Room by John Manning.
The most exciting thing here this week is that Share a Story, Shape a Future is coming soon! This is one of my favorite annual events in the blogosphere and this year they are celebrating their fifth year of spreading literacy love! I encourage you to click on over and check it out!
What is your bloggish news this week?
Little writing this week, but I did do a bit of research. An idea that has slowly been percolating in my mind is beginning to take bloom. One of these days, writing will begin to take form!!
How was your writing this week?
This week entailed a LOT of packing and organizing. We have decided to do some drastic downsizing for the upcoming moves. I have been really having to decide what stays and what goes. The last few days, I have begun going through our children's books. It is harder than I thought it was to cut them back! My son has narrowed down a good stack, but I was hoping to cut at least 50%. I think we are maybe at 25% at this point. And, that was just his shelves. This doesn't include my daughter's or the big one in the "reading corner." That will be on my list of things to do this week and I will need all the luck I can get!!
Do you find it difficult to cut back on your collection? Any tips or suggestions?
