Three day weekends are just perfection, even without major plans. Even if they just mean extra sleep, laziness, and some extra time to finish the weekend list of to-dos, they’re pretty fantastic. We had the added bonus of some great weather (read: not too hot), so we took the pup to the park and spent some time reading on the porch, which we haven’t done as much much since we moved.
After a not-so-great June in Book World, I’m hoping July can help me turn things around and decided not to jump into a new read right away after finishing up The Sport of Kings. Waiting until Lab Girl called to me (especially with so many raves) seemed a good tactic and I’m really enjoying it so far. I also decided to pick up Christodora by Tim Murphy, which isn’t out until August, but has been nagging at me since I heard about it at BEA. The added bonus? I still have the rest of the day off to squeeze in some reading time, so I may get to pick up another.
