Morning Meanderings…. MUCH Bookness Today #BEA3


Happy Monday.  Well… Monday anyway… yeah.

I feel quite like I am hitting the ground running today – full steam ahead in to a Bookish Adventure…  (picture the rabbit from Alice In Wonderland here…).

This morning I finished up an article on the Friends of the Brainerd Public Library for a new magazine.  The after a quick work out, I hurried back home to prep this post and then get ready for our Author Event at the library at noon today.  We have Author Lorna Landvik today and I am soooooooo excited to see her.  She is our consistent MC for Wine and Words and has a new book out,  Once In A Blue Moon, the follow-up to Patty Jane’s House Of Curl.

THEN….

Once the Author event is over we switch out the room to set up the Children’s Book Sale that starts at  3 pm today….  all kids books 25 cents each.  This is our 3rd year with the children’s book sale and so much fun to put books in young readers hands.

BUT WAIT….
There’s MORE!

I then switch gears to head over to Prairie Bay to set up for our Books Burgers and Brews event for June that starts at 6 pm tonight.  We are discussing the book Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher which I hope will be a good discussion.  I have been promoting on line and will be talking about at the Author event today as well to hopefully promote good attendance.

So basically… I need a dress and running shoes today.

Check.  ;P

And now, for my Book Expo promo of the day….

I recently read a book by B A Paris, Behind Closed Doors (review up tomorrow).  I enjoyed the book… so when I saw that the author had another book coming out in July, I had to grab this one at the Book Expo.

If you can’t trust yourself, who can you trust?

Cass is having a hard time since the night she saw the car in the woods. It was on the winding rural road, in the middle of a downpour, and a woman was sitting inside―the woman who was killed. She’s been trying to put the crime out of her mind; what could she have done, really? It’s a dangerous road to be on in the middle of a storm, and she probably would have been hurt herself if she’d stopped. Not only that, her husband would be furious if he knew she’d broken her promise not to take that shortcut home.

But since then, she’s been forgetting every little thing. Where she left the car; if she took her pills; even the alarm code.

The only thing she can’t forget is that woman, the woman she might have saved, and the terrible nagging guilt.

And the silent calls she’s receiving, or the feeling that someone’s watching her…

 

 

Come on… how do you pass that up?

Have a good day all… I have to put those tennis shoes on and get running.
