Morning Meanderings… A Little Bit Of JK In My Life
It is fall so Wednesdays are back and in full force. I work on Wednesdays until 3:00 pm, run home, let dogs out grab something to eat and go back to work with students from 5 – 8 pm. It wipes me out.
But this morning I got up and as I sit here with my coffee reading the morning emails I remember that today is the release of JK Rowling’s new book The Casual Vacancy.
As I preordered that baby should be on my doorstep at some point today (thank you UPS!) and since the book room is done! SQQQQQUUUEEEE again! They finished the shelves yesterday, it will be going in there. :D
In Shelf Awareness today JK Rowling says that she feels she will go back to writing for children, maybe younger than the Harry Potter crowd – BUT (and I love this but!) she has not ruled out that if an idea stemmed off the original Harry Potter series and she could enter that world again in a new and refreshing way – she would.
“That’s all I need to hear you say JK! That is all, that there is a possibility!”
So this morning I am humming Mambo #5 which makes no sense at all except that I am singing “A Little bit Of J K in my life….” in place of a little bit of Monica…. and really thats all I know of the song so I keep repeating that same line :D.
Today will be WILD. I am going to work until noon – come home and put together the book room. SSSQQQUUUEEEE! ANd Ia lso need to write up my Bloggiesta mini challenge post, my Banned Book Week blog hop giveaway post, a review, and an article for Her Voice Magazine. Tonight is the first Meryl Streep Movie Club night at my house and I will be serving wine and cheese in honor of the book room – which, you will see pics of Saturday morning. :D
Ok – must get moving. Did you pre-order the new JK book? Put a hold on it at the library? Do you plan to read it? Skip it? Wait to see what people are saying?
