In my reading I managed to knock out two books this week as well. I had looked over my list of finished books for the year and found I didn't finish a single book in June! It was somewhat shocking. So I picked up an Elm Creek Quilts novel at the library and finished that in about 35 hours. I always really enjoy those. And I finished Style, Sex, and Substance the other night. Definitely an entertaining read. And the questions for reflection at the end of each chapter helped me slow down and at least consider how it all applies to my life, rather than just cruising into the next topic. The next book in line to be finished is the Tomie dePaola bio. We love us some Tomie around here. I'm especially fond of his religious books and folktale retellings but Bigger has also really taken to Strega Nona these days. I'm enjoying getting to know Tomie (because he's one of those authors you feel like you can be on a first first name basis with) and the development of his work.
And now I'm off to link up at small things :)
Depending on what happens between now and then I might schedule a YA post for next week but perhaps not - the wee one is officially scheduled to be evicted next Wednesday morning! Maybe I'll take the netbook and Yarn Along from labor and delivery. Hey, I'll have to do something to pass the time ;-)
Oh, and Karen Edmisten (one of the contributors) is hosting a giveaway of Style, Sex, and Substance right now. Check it out here.
