Books Read From My Shelves

Interesting Tidbits on the Web:


I cannot believe how fast this month is already going and how much has happened in just this last week.  I didn't have much time to read with the short week and all the events that happened.

First we had Munchkin's first day of kindergarten! I didn't think this would be a big deal but I did actually get a little teared up when he ran off to join his class in their assigned seats.

Then I managed to snag tickets for Hubby and I to the NE Patriots game on Thursday when they revealed the newest super bowl banner

On Friday I went to Hascon with one of my best friends (and yes I made her dress up with me as My Little Ponies).

And finally on Saturday Munchkin had his first soccer practice and game (and Hubby is coaching his team too).

Of course now that football season has started we are watching it all day on Sunday too. So reading time has been drastically reduced this week.  I did listen to a lot of books though since that seems to be easiest at this time.  

I do want to make a little statement here too about the events happening around the world. I do not want people to think that I am an insensitive or uniformed about all the disasters, politics and current events.  I do not mention them all here because first off, there is so much happening I wouldn't be able to keep up with all of it, also this isn't a news or current event blog, it is a personal book blog. And finally, this is my happy place, books are where I go to escape everything going on. I know that this statement really shouldn't be necessary but so many people in this day and age are quick to judge those around them, so please don't judge me and think that I am heartless to the suffering in this world, outside of this blog I support through donations and community service.

So with that said, I hope that you all have a chance to escape into a book this week!

  1. Looks like a crazy and fun week. Please don't feel bad about not saying more on everything going on in the world. Living your life to its fullest and finding happiness brings happiness to me and others I'm sure. We all feel overwhelmed and sad about what's going on and we know you do too. Have a great week!
