Morning Meanderings…. Cinderella Cinderella, Going To The Ball!!!


Good morning!  What a whirlwind week.  I feel like I am home and not and home and not… probably because that is true and that will stay true for the next month.  I like the excitement of the travel and the events and trying something new… but I like being home too.

Tonight, I have been invited to Opus and Olives.  The premiere event in the cities that I modeled Wine and Words after, even though I have never attended.  The tickets to this event are a whopping $150 each, but I am going as a guest (thus the Cinderella… although I am not sure if she was exactly a guest or a party crasher… perhaps the later…. hmmmmm….)

Anyhoo…. YAY!   The 2014 Opus & Olives author lineup includes Julie Pandl, Louise Penny, Matt Richtel, Hampton Sides, Jane Smiley and Simon Winchester.  This will be a fun evening of listening to authors speak, meeting up with other authors and publishers from the Minneapolis circle of influence and who knows.  It is research, but it is also FUN!  Their event reaches over 800 people! 800!!!

Of course the big question is… what to wear???


Here at home, I had two fun bookish items come in for review this week:



Belzhar by Meg Wolitzer (audio)

By The Book by Pamela Paul


That’s it.  Hope your Sunday is filled with good things!
