It was a relaxing weekend as my family gave me the most wonderful present for Mother's Day: peace and quiet! I was able to read several books and finish one completely. I also was able to do some blogging to get ahead for the week (yay, me!). I am looking forward to a somewhat less busy week. Last week, I attended two different author events at my local Barnes & Noble! Plus I have been trying to catch up on reading ARCs and buying all the wonderful new books that were released recently.
I learned about this book from one of the author visits I attended last week.. Author Siobhan Vivian explained how this book really had an impact on her as it tells the story of a break up through the mementos that one of the people collects. I found it fascinating. I plan on getting this book ASAP.
Must Listen:I listened to this audio book a few weeks ago and was mesmerized by all the stories about early television and Leonard Nimoy (Mr. Spock from Star Trek). I heard about this book during the Silicon Valley ComicCon. If you loved Star Trek, then you will not want to miss this book. I think listening to it is the way to go. It is lovingly written and narrated by William Shatner, Leonard's lifelong friend.
This YouTube video has a lot of great background information about one of my favorite Animes of all time: Spirited Away. I used to live in Japan and I still enjoy cultural aspects of that country. If you haven't seen Spirited Away, then please find a copy and immerse yourself in it's splendor!
What are you excited for this week? Let me know in the comments.
