My day was rather lazy yesterday, as I spent most of the day reading Inkspell and learning the ins and outs of PhotoShop from my son who is home for Easter. It was a great relaxing day, but that means I must make up for it today. The family will come over around 5:00 for an Easter dinner of ham, brisket, potato casserole, baked beans and French Silk Pie. I have purchased all ingredients, but I have not prepared a single thing. Also, the house is a mess and it must be cleaned by 4:30. Not to worry, with a sweet hubby and willing teenager (cough – cough) we should have it in presentable shape in about an hour.
I am hopeful to complete Inkspell today (I have less than 200 pages to go) – but if that doesn’t happen it will be ok. I am finding this book to be a bit more tedious than Inkheart (read review here), so I may not read these last few pages as closely.
I am very excited for the Read-a-thon on April 18 and have thoroughly enjoyed reading all your posts this weekend. I have added many new books (particularly YA books) to my TBR pile that I might attempt for the event – or I might save for another time. As luck would have it – my local library is having their huge annual Friends of the Library Sale this week. I plan to go to the special preview on Thursday night and hope to find some great bargains!
I hope this finds all of you in joyous moods today. Happy Easter Sunday!
