It’s been a miserable weekend as far as the weather goes here in my city. It’s been raining and cold. But it was a perfect weekend for bookworms like us, isn’t it? We were supposed to finish up packing the cabin so we can move everything out by the time my husband gets back from his work trip to Washington next Saturday, but he didn’t want to drive up in the rain. So we ended up staying in. The best thing about this weekend in was that I decided to pick up some books that have been on my shopping list for a while.
So while I should feel bad about buying more books knowing that I will have to make room in the basement for the ones from the cabin, I really couldn’t. I’m not going to give myself a pat on the back thinking that I deserve these books. I’m not going to make excuses for breaking my book buying ban either. I’m just going to let things be and see how I feel after everything is said and done. I think it’s going to be a phenomenal place once I’ve got all my books shelved and organized. We’ll see.
I would like to thank HBG USA for my copy of Alison Sweeney’s Opportunity Knocks, and Penguin Random House Canada for my copy of Eligible.

I’ve officially cancelled BEA this year. I know I’m not going to get my money back because they’re nonrefundable, but I don’t have any other choice. I’m sad, but remaining employed is a priority right now. Lol. I’m sure there’ll be other opportunities in the future.
I hope you’re all enjoying what’s left of your weekend. My husband is away next week, which means I’m going to be miserable. Bah. Heck, I’m already miserable. *sobs*
