I’m taking a holiday hiatus from some of my usual weekly memes – The Week Ahead and Spotlight on Bookstores will return in the new year.

The Week Ahead: November 10 – 16, 2008

It’s actually a fairly quiet week, bookish and otherwise, on my calendar this week.  That’s a relief, because I can already feel the frenzy of the holiday season around the corner, and it will be nice to relax a bit and catch up on “things” around here!  Of course, now that I’ve said that, my [...]
