Week in Review: October 12


This week on the blog you can check out:

I’m kind of proud of the Halloween displays I made at my place of employ and my review of Blue Lily, Lily Blue so maybe you want to check those posts out?!

Monday and Tuesday of this week were lousy on just about every level. We’re past family birthdays now so I’m hoping the heaviness from thinking about my aunt’s death last year will lift a little bit but we’ll see.

On Wednesday I got to go to the AAP’s Children’s Book Buzz panel which was a blast. I got to see a lot of marketing professionals talking about upcoming titles. Also I got some free books which is always a kick of course. If you follow me on Twitter, you can scroll back to see all of my #bookbuzznyc tweets which give a pretty good live-tweeting recap of things.

In other bookish news I’ve been ruthlessly purging my books at home. I literally have three large bags to take to the Strand at some point to sell. I’m also being pretty ruthless about my TBR shelves on goodreads because I’m determined to get it down to manageable numbers and get through a lot of the books in my house. Determined!

I also finally cleaned up my desk drawers at work so it’s all much neater and I can find things again.

I’m also gearing up for Monday Memories which, if you have a blog or even if you don’t, I hope you’ll join!

That’s all that’s been going on in my neck of the woods.

How was your week?
