Weekly Reading: Post Vacation Roundup

OMG I did NOT read much on my vacation.  In fact, the entire vacation was focused far more on writing and knitting than it was on reading.  That and buying a new car.  It’s pretty and my 40th birthday present to myself.

I will write more about my trip to Florida in another post.  I have pictures from the Wizarding World of Harry Potter to share.  For now I have been trying to make progress on audiobooks that I have been checking out from the library.  A bunch of my wait-list books became available.  Right now I am trying to get through Joe Hill’s The Fireman.  Don’t let that last sentence confuse you.  I am loving the book.  It’s just more than 19 hours.

The problem with a long library book: you have to return it and, especially if it’s popular, have to wait for your new place on the wait list to come around again.  I got about 1/2 through the book and then had to return it.  This sucks, but there are only 6 people ahead of me and 8 ‘copies’ of the audiobook.  I should have it in a week or so.  I have three other books ready to go in Overdrive.  Plus what I have in Audible AND I could always move on to Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.

I got some good books at the ALA conference.  I was very select with what I brought home and I tried to focus on getting ebook editions rather than carrying print books.  Here are some of the books I am most excited about:
