I had a pretty good week last week, overall. It was my birthday on Thursday and, since I don’t work on Thursdays, my husband took the day off and we took Daniel to the Brookfield Zoo. We were not able to get the pass from our library for free admission as we had hoped – when I called the week before they told me that the pass would be available November 5th, but when we got there they said it wouldn’t be available until the 6th. However, we decided to head to the zoo anyway and it turns out that from October 1 – December 31 admission is free on Tuesdays and Thursdays anyway. Daniel didn’t pay much attention to the animals, but he had a great time anyway, going on a VERY long walk with mommy AND daddy.
Daniel also went with me on Wednesday night to see Justine Larbalestier, author of “Liar,” sign books at Andersons in Downers Grove. I did a write up of the event (along with a giveaway!) this week too.
This was also a pretty decent reading week, I managed to polish off four books:
“Where Men Win Glory” was an audio book, and “Liar” was definitely my favorite, although I really enjoyed “The Seance” too, not so much “The Private Papers of Eastern Jewel.”
I’m already nearly done with a book today, so I’m hoping for 5 books this week, or at least four print books, if I don’t get through my audio.
