First, I just have to say all of you guys are the best! Thank you so much for all the super nice comments you left me. I’m sorry I didn’t comment myself and I know I haven’t been around to blog visit but I’ve been spending some time away from the computer this weekend. Sometimes that’s a good thing. I promise to catch up, and I have taken note of all the suggestions you’ve left and those which I haven’t read have gone on the famous TBR list. Oh it’s so long now.
Now the moment you’ve been waiting for…. Lesley of A Life in Books is the winner of a special handmade book! Congrats Lesley. I’m sorry I can’t give everyone a bookish prize but I’ll just have to think of more contests throughout the year. By the way, you must go visit Lesley because she’s just announced a reading challenge. There can never be enough of those!
My weekend was spent reading and hanging out with friends. I did have two bookish encounters which really made me smile this weekend. The first one was at Starbucks. I stopped for a hazelnut latte and the barrista noticed I had a book with me. She asked me if I liked to read (I guess she doesn’t know I’m Bookgirl – heh) and I said yes. She told me that I must join their book club and of course I said yes again. Seriously, what is wrong with me? I already belong to two book groups. Ah well, maybe she won’t call me to remind me because then I’ll feel guilty if I don’t go.
The second bookish encounter happened while I waited for a friend at a restaurant. I was reading, Parable of the Sower, when a girl came over because she noticed the title. She asked me if I liked the book and said she hoped so because it was an amazing read. She sat next to me and we started talking about the book for a bit and even though I haven’t finished it based on what I’ve read so far and what she said I will definitely be reading more by Octavia Butler. How nice to be able to share the love of a good book with perfect strangers right?
Anyway it was a great weekend and I am so close to finishing Parable of the Sower so I’m off to do that right now.
