There’s still time to join us in planning “the week ahead”, and to enter to win a Page-A-Day Book Lover’s Calendar. Find the details here:
A snapshot of what may, or may not, happen in my life this week:
Monday – We were away this weekend, so much of my day will be spent recovering from that – laundry and grocery shopping! We were down the Cape visiting with friends at their family’s beach “lodge” – thank you Hilary and Tony (et al!). The original structure of the Lodge was built as a fishing shack in the 1700s, it has been extended and updated throughout the years and has quite a bit of character. As soon as we pulled down the gravel driveway and saw the building I said, “It’s The Big House!”, which was met by my children eye-rolling “of course it’s a big house”. No, it reminded me of my mental picture of The Big House: A Century in the Life of an American Summer Home by George Howe Colt.
Tuesday – TuesdayThingers, in which the Boston Bibliophile poses a question, somehow related to the LibraryThing site. I also hope to have my review for Christopher Meeks’ short fiction collection, Months and Seasons, ready to post.
Wednesday – I’ll post the next installment in my SOBs series, a photo and short blurb about R. Franklin Pyke Bookseller in Avalon, California, which was discovered by Lisa at Books on the Brain while on vacation recently. We don’t have a lot of information about this bookstore; if you can add anything, feel free to Contact me or Comment on the post. If there’s a special bookstore that you’d like to spotlight, please let me know!
Thursday – Tonight Book Club Girl will interview Debra Dean, author of The Madonnas of Leningrad. If you have a quesion or comment for the author, you can call in (or e-mail your question to Book Club Girl ahead of time).
