I apologize for the lack of posting on my part lately, but it's been a busy week! Another week of working late/eating dinner at work with the kids, so I have no culinary adventures to tell you about. (I guess this is a good thing, because my kitchen's a mess again, of course! No room to cook right now.)
I'm leaving town in a week, and went to Magers and Quinn, this great used bookstore in uptown, to pick up some books for the trip. I wanted at least four new books, but six would be better, because I tend to read A LOT when I travel -- especially when travelling with other people (it's a nice escape. Hard to argue with "I'm going to bed!") I did find six! Here's what I got:
Summer Sisters (Judy Blume)
A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius (Dave Eggers)
Every Boy's Got One (Meg Cabot)
Saul and Patsy (Charles Baxter)
Bodily Harm (Margaret Atwood)
Surfacing (Margaret Atwood)
Now, I usually prefer to go to the library, but I don't like taking library books with me when I travel -- they are often too heavy and take up too much space in my luggage, and there's always that fear that they will get lost and I'll have to pay for them anyway in the end! Also, if I finish a book and need space in my luggage for something else, I can always leave it behind somewhere -- all of the books were pretty cheap and thus, slightly disposeable.
Hopefully, six books will keep me plenty busy!
