I interrupt the BEA posts for a quick update on a lot of great things coming up here, in life, and a bit of sadness too.
Let’s just get the sadness out of the way. Today is the 18th anniversary of the loss of my mom and my step dad to a car accident. Every year,I never know how it is going to hit me. There have been times, this day has been while I was at the EXPO, and busy is good. It’s the days like today where I am home, and planning what I will do today where it is a little harder.
What’s happening here?
The Book Expo books arrived yesterday. That’s a SSSQQQUUUEEEE. I have not opened the boxes yet. I have a tradition where a friend of mine comes over with her daughter Camryn (the YA reviewer) I have tabbed above, and we go through the boxes together. They help me sort and we chat books and the expo and I enjoy the experience with other book lovers. I will be posting highlighted books soon.
Camp Benedict. Camp starts on Monday. I am off next week from Monday afternoon on. This weekend I will be working on our “One Word” project which is our theme this year… positive thinking. I love the theme and I look forward to a pretty amazing week.
My 5 year Blogiversary. Now that is exciting! I am going to put the post up tomorrow – June 7th, and we (please come!) are going to have some fun as we have in the past years. I will be having BIG giveaways and an all day celebration here of book goodness. 5 years wow…. how did that happen?
Audiobook Month. YAY! Did you know that June is audiobook month? I am excited to kick off a lot of fun posts and giveaways next Tuesday thanks to a wonderful group of narrators who will be sharing some fun things here. There will be giveaways, gift certificates, and more. Audiobook lovers and those who are not there yet, this is going to be FUN. 😀
I actually have so many posts to write I have a list! Next up in book expo posts will be the Author Breakfasts, then a random picture post of the expo floor etc with wrap up thoughts.
Today while working on Camp Projects I will be listening to audio. I hope to get in a bike ride today and possibly tonight see the Fault In Our Stars Movie with Friends.
What will you be doing with your Friday?
