I'm Alive!

I kind of disappeared for a while.  The past two weeks have been crazy!  I got hammered with work and was prepping for a family vacation.  I'm still have 100 pages left to finish of War and Peace and Oliver Twist so I can write my readalong posts that are now late.  Whoops!  No time to read.  Hopefully I'll finish those up and get my posts written this weekend.

Our family just got home from a five day trip to London.  It was my first time, and it was pretty amazing.  I have a few bookish things to share from our trip.  I'm hoping I'll post my thoughts on that early next week about poet's corner at Westminster Abbey and our tour of the reconstruction of Shakespeare's Globe Theatre.


  1. Welcome back! Looking forward to your London posts.

  2. Yay, you went to London! It's my favorite city. I lived there for awhile and I swear that city just radiates literary references. I love the poet's corner and the Globe (I've seen a few shows there) and I can't wait to hear your thoughts.

  3. Welcome back! And I went to London once and just fell in love. I keep trying to get back but never quite manage it. Some day! Till then, I'll live vicariously through you.

  4. What do you mean you didn't have time to blog when you were on holiday in London?!!! Totally joking ;) I can't wait to hear about the details! Also great work on War and Peace. The finish line is in sight!

  5. Nymeth--Thanks! I can't wait to write it.

    Avid Reader--London does have such a literary feel. How fun that you lived in London. I would love to see a show at the Globe.

    Jenners--London is lovely isn't it. I hope you make it back soon. I'm ready to visit again. There's so much to see.

    Kathmeista--Thanks for the encouragement. War and Peace has slowed down a bit and it's tough to get into. I will conquer though! :)

  6. Sounds like fun-- I spent five days in London once--Loved it! Hope to get back someday for more exploring. Seemed like everytime I found a museum it was about to close so I had to rush. Art shouldn't be rushed!
