Morning Meanderings….

Good Morning *stated still a little groggy* I was not on-line very much yesterday – or for the past few days really with our serving week for the homeless, catching up with a few friends, and AL coming home from Honduras.

Yup….. Al’s home.  (I almost dropped coffee cup with the little dance happening here)

I have another pretty full day… honestly a pretty full week…. but I am going to get on when I can as I have a lot to catch up on.  One of my favorite things to do each week is connect with those who link to the It’s Monday, What Are You Reading meme and I have hardly grazed it….. no worries, I am still traveling my way through…. Coffee Cup in hand.  I am just a bit slower this week.  🙂

Tonight I will post February comment winners.  I was going to last night and between a meeting and catching up with Al on his trip until about 11 pm I didn’t get it done.

In bookish news….  Have you see or heard of this book?

Quentin Jacobsen has spent a lifetime loving the magnificently adventurous Margo Roth Spiegelman from afar. So when she cracks open a window and climbs back into his life — dressed like a ninja and summoning him for an ingenious campaign of revenge — he follows. After their all-nighter ends, and a new day breaks, Q arrives at school to discover that Margo, always an enigma, has now become a mystery. But Q soon learns that there are clues — and they’re for him. Urged down a disconnected path, the closer he gets, the less Q sees the girl he thought he knew.

This one showed up in my Daily Dose from Powell Books and I liked the sound of it.  Any books hit your radar lately that you are hoping to take a closer look at?

    1. No kidding Hannah – it has been so fun to hear his stories about Honduras. He has never went without me before so this is cool to get his take on it. 🙂

  1. I just listened to Paper towns and really enjoyed it. I have a review of it somewhere, but my mind hasn’t woken up enough to find it heh.

  2. I’ll bet you and Al had a lot to catch up on! Tee-hee!

    Okay, that probably crossed some line, but seriously, as much as you enjoyed your quiet time, it’s always good to have your companion back.

    “Paper Towns” sounds like a promising book. The other day, I saw a book that caught my attention: “Notes from the Cracked Ceiling,” by Anne E. Kornblett. Now, I’m not sure if I spelled the last name right! I wrote it down, but sometimes I can’t read my own handwriting! LOL

  3. I know you’re glad that Al is home. And I know what you mean about being busy. So glad I’m on spring break next week. When I saw it in my calendar, I almost did a little dance myself. No, I have not heard of that book, but it does sound interesting. In answer to your other question, too many to mention! LOL!

    1. Me too Michelle! Hopefully next week will slow down again….. but as I think about it… meeting on Monday, book club on Tuesday….. I an thinking maybe not….

  4. Good morning! Hope you have a wonderful day. Haven’t seen that book before, sounds interesting. I’ve added so many books to my wish list lately but the latest one is called The Chosen One by Carol Lynch Williams . About a 13 yr old growing up in an isolated polygamist home.

    1. I know Lisa! he got back Monday morning. I did enjoy my time alone- I actually filled it with friends and commitments….. but so nice to have him back.

  5. Howard Louderback

    The book which hit my radar and which I bought and read and highly recommend is CITY OF DRAGONS by Kelle Stanley. I also highly recommend LUSTRUM (Brit name) or CONSPIRATA by Robert Harris.

      1. Howard Louderback

        Robert Harris wrote a few books about espionage, notably ENIGMA, about the Brits breaking the German codes during WWII. His latest area has been ancient Rome, notably POMPEII, IMPERIUM & CONSPIRATA. The first is obviously about the Vesuvius blow-up, the second two are the most important part of the life of Cicero, as related by his slave Tiro. Tiro is noted for inventin stenography, and we can thank him for e.g. and i.e. The books are not biographies, nor are they pot-boilers or bodice-rippers, but serious literature.

  6. I always look forward to time to myself but I also can’t wait for my husband to return home. It sounds like you enjoyed your alone time based on your posts.

    You have had much travel and excitement up there – remember it’s the best time of the year in MN (yep… HS Hockey tourney)!!!! oh how I miss it 🙂

    I saw this in the Daily Dose too! I did read another book by him last year, “An Abundance of Katherines” and really liked it.

  8. I’m a huge fan of John Green. I’ve read Paper Towns and thought it was a good story. But I l LOVED his other two Looking for Alaska and An Abundance of Katherines.
    I think I’ll actually be able to get to a real book store this weekend when I travel to Boise and I’ll be picking up A Match Made In High School-that one looks like a fun read.

  9. I have a full week coming up as well. Every night now for Thur, Frid, Sat is full now, and Sun is working on it too. Well, that’s not fun… When am I going to read? I will have to sneak away a few minutes.
