How did you get here so quickly? Well, I’m ready for cooler weather if not necessarily for all the craziness associated with the upcoming holiday season. I was at Hobby Lobby last week and I could barely find any Halloween items, it was all about Christmas.
Anyway, last night as I waited for the kids to come trick-or-treating, I started reading The Gates by John Connolly. I probably heard about this book before but I didn’t really remember what it was about so what a nice surprise to begin reading about a boy who is going out trick-or-treating. I swear, I’m not making this up. I just love it when little things like this happen. I’ve started the book and hopefully will be able to join Carin and her book group this weekend.
What else, oh, what scary movie did we watch last night? Well, I didn’t want to stay up too late so we had to go with something shorter than a feature length film and we watched Wallander: Faceless Killers. Have you guys watched this series? It’s good. We’ve seen a few other episodes and I really like it. I’ve read one of the books from which this series is based (actually, Faceless Killers) but I read that so many years ago before I got into my Scandinavian crime kick that I never really continued with any other Henning Mankell books. I really should continue with that series.
Finally, my month started off on a note. I got Half Price Books coupons in the mail and $5 in Borders Bucks. I’m ready for some book shopping, which of course will have to wait until the weekend, but isn’t that a great way to start the week?
Ok, off to read more about a little boy’s adventure.
