This & That

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. We celebrated our our wedding anniversary, tried a new pizza place and of course spent some time with books. Overall a great time. I can’t believe we are into November and I just know these last two months of the year will fly by so my goal this month is to get a lot of stuff done around the house so that when Thanksgiving weekend comes along, I can devote some time to being outdoors, being with books and relaxing!

On the book front, when we went to Barnes & Noble I found a lot of new magazines to explore and I did find the last issue of Cloth Paper Scissors. A few weeks ago I read that they had gone to a quarterly publication, then that it was completely shutting down and now looks like there may be hope that it’s going to be acquired. Keeping my fingers crossed that it will still stay around. In any case, I was so excited to get this issue because there are some cool techniques and one in particular with gelli plate printing.

In other book news, I bought Gorky Park by Martin Cruz Smith. I’m not really that keen to start this book but it’s for my book group discussion later this month. I’d rather start some nonfiction, an Atwood or maybe even some German Literature. Can you believe I almost forgot about German Lit Month? Caroline & Lizzy have some great themes to talk about each week so go check it out. I’m still debating whether to join or not so I’ll let you know.

Anyway, that’s about it for now. Hope you all have a great start of the week and more book talk soon!
