I'm also fighting a cold right now--a cold I'm convinced I caught while waiting at the pediatrician's office for my daughter to get her flu shot. As a result, I have a bit more downtime than usual and I'm hoping to finish my current book (which is a good one!) and start on the next. My reading time of late has been not what I would like, although I will admit that much of that is due to my own distractions. I have 4 solicited reviews coming up in the next month and am determined to do some of my "own" reading in there as well.
And, I have a little whine. I wasn't able to make it to Portland's Wordstock this year as we ended up being out of town that weekend. I have a friend who goes every year and I am going to get the dates of the 2013 festival in my calendar as soon as I know them so that I will be sure to make it next year...finally!
