I know that Fall doesn’t officially begin until September 22nd, but this past week has really felt like the beginning of Fall for me. Our European vacation came to an end, Summer Fridays at work are over. Russell (my husband) is a high school English teacher, and this week was his first week back at school too.
I’m not too bummed though because
- I’m over the humidity of summer
- I make my year’s resolutions in the Fall so I’m feeling refreshed and motivated right now
- I love pumpkin flavored anything
- There are so many good literary books coming out that I’m really excited about (1, 2, 3, 4)
Hope you’re all looking forward to Fall too (and this weekend)!
Here are some fun book links from around the Web (click on photos for sources):
Books + Ira Glass. The host of “This American Life” (my favorite) talks about books in this NY Times article.
This video is hilarious and offensive (in a funny way).
If you were an extreme Babysitter’s Club fanatic like me, you’ll get a kick out of this amazing Claudia Kishi comic.
