Java with Jo
Since we will be bringing my daughter back to college this weekend I guess that it is time to admit that summer has passed us by. It is a sad time for me as my home will be quieter and the weather will get progressively cooler. There will be a crispness in the air as the dreaded 'F' word approaches...yes, it is FALL! Many of my friends love the fall season, but not me! I can't stand it as I long for the long, hot summer days.
I will just have to immerse myself in some good books to ease the pain of fall. I haven't been able to read quite as much of The Passage as I would like. I am over halfway through the novel, but then I joined the readalong for The Handmaid's Tale, which is amazing I might add, and started reading my book club selection of Home in Carolina. Our first book club meeting for the year (because we follow the school year) is next Wednesday so I need to get cracking! These books are keeping me super busy! I've often wondered how people can read so many books at once, but here is how I'm doing it. I was reading The Passage at night and The Handmaid's Tale during my lunch hour. This was working fine until I had to throw into the mix Home in Carolina. So that is now my night time read for a few days but I'm hoping to finish that one up over the car ride this weekend.
And today my Kindle should be shipped, which means I should have it next week! Can you tell that I'm a bit excited about this? A question for Kindle or other E-Reader owners: Have you purchased the extended warranty? I'm wondering if I should make this investment and would like to get an idea as to how many of you have made this purchase.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
