Bookish Weekend Plans

Guess who’s not spending this weekend shopping at ridiculous Black Friday sales? This girl!

I do plan to participate in Small Business Saturday by heading up to an independent book store that I’ve been wanting to check out. I figure I’ll see about buying some Christmas gifts there and well, maybe just a little something for myself. The hubby and my dad are planning to ride their motorcycles to some kind of car show swap meet thing that’s a couple of hours away, so I’ll have plenty of time to do bookish browsing to my heart’s content.

3 books to review

On the blogging front, I need to get my review of The Hunger Games written, since I’m giving the book back to my friend on Monday. She’s bringing me the other two in the trilogy – yay! I have two other books on my to-review list, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks and Persepolis II. I’ll see what I can do about getting those reviews finished, too.

Of course, if I catch up on reviews, that means I need to read more books! I’m almost done with Mr. Fox, and I plan to finish that this weekend. I won a book through Amy’s Nigerian Literature challenge, so I might give that one a try. It’s not the type of book I’d normally pick out, but I try to stay open-minded. I also picked up a Barbara Ehrenreich book at a library book sale, so that is certainly an option.

  1. I'm also participating in Thankfully Reading. I want to go to this small bookstore I love for Small Business Saturday but I'm stuck with the kids and I'm going shopping for them! 😉 We'll see how it goes. I can't wait to read your thoughts on everything you read. Happy reading.

  2. I'm with you on avoiding the Black Friday rush…not planning on leaving the house to be honest this weekend, but that's also because I think I might be coming down with a cold. However, it's also a great excuse for reading. Glad you enjoyed The Hunger Games. Personally, I liked that one the best…not that the others weren't good, just not as good.

  3. I can't stand Black Friday! But I did have to shop today — my toilet broke and I needed to buy a new part. However, I shopped at an independent hardware store, so my conscience is clear! Looking forward to climbing into bed early with my books!

  4. It sound like you will have your work cut out. It still takes me a good 45 min. to write a review. My reading time has been butchered with unexpected mishaps. I well, back on track. Nothing to do but laugh.Good luck with accomplishing your goals.

  5. @Vasillly: Happy reading to you! I went to a indie bookstore today and was impressed by the toy selection. Who would have thought?@Unfinishedperson2: Hope you feel better! Maybe you can have someone bring you tea and a book :-)@Silsbee: Thanks, you too!@Gwendolyn: Ha! Well, some shopping is necessary. @Steph: Thanks! I really need to get Persepolis II reviewed, as it's overdue at the library.@Jenn: Good luck with the reading!
