GAH! (Probably not the best first word of the day… but, ehhhhh). The “GAH” is because I did it again. I said the “F” word. ANd for some reason I keep on saying it like I have a problem or something. Seriously what is wrong with me?
(you knew that was where I was going right?)
Being a summer… I have to admit I am not a bit fan of the cooler mornings, the 50 and 60 degree temperatures, the longer leaved shirts and digging out the pants instead of Capri’s for work. HOWEVER…. thanks to book lovers, there are some awesome happenings that kind of sort of make up a wee bit of ground with me.
This weekend is the Blogfest. I know right? I must have just continuously been at the wrong place at the wrong time because I seriously missed out on all of this until the last couple days. This takes place September 10-12. I have linked to a list of participating blogs here so if you so choose you can stop on by.
AND then, of course there is Book Blogger Appreciation Week which is sooooo much fun! And check out the super cool theme this year, A Treasure Chest of Infinite Books and Infinite Blogs. SO COOL! I love participating and saying “Hey!” to all my bloggy friends old and new by offering giveaways and fun posts right here during the very productive week on the blog, September13-17.
And (oh yes, there is more!!!!) Banned Books Week is coming up again and before you say I would never, could never read a banned book…. uhhh…. yeah, check out the list. More than likely – you already have. have you ever read a classic? Chances are it was a banned book. Have you ever read a Harry Potter book? Banned! Banned! Banned! Judy Blume? Yup… her too. Here is a list of banned books, but you can find lists and lists everywhere. Check out the Banned Books site that is taking reviews of banned books. I was invited to add my recent review of To Kill A Mockingbird to the blog. Mark your calendars for September 25 – October 2 and maybe plan to read one or two during banned books week….bring out the rebel in you!
Then on October 9, the wonderful Dewey’s Read-A-Thon rolls out again for another fantastic 24 hour read a thon that includes great games and giveaways as well as a time to set aside and read and read and read… check out the site.
For all you anti “F” word people such as myself, looking at these great events kind of eases the pain of fall right? And even if you love fall… oh I know you are out there…. this is just a little icing on the cake then. 😀
If I missed any events please let me know! 😀
