Java With Jo

TGIF!  I don't know about you all but it has been one long week for me and I am ready for the weekend!  August was not the best reading month for me since I only read a couple of books, probably because I was reading The Passage.  September turned out to be much better as I was able to finish The Passage among many others even!  I really enjoyed that monstrously huge book so stay tuned for my review.

For our first book club meeting in September we discussed Home in Carolina by Sherryl Woods.  You can see my final thoughts on this book since I just posted my review yesterday.  Although I didn't care for this book, we did have a conference call with Sherryl Woods and that was a lot of fun.  We meet again next Wednesday already and I'm not even halfway through Things I've Been Silent About by Azar Nafisi.  I don't usually read non-fiction so this one is taking me a bit longer but hopefully I can make a dent in that one this weekend.

I don't really have much planned for the weekend besides housework and reading.  My home was a bit neglected this week as there were a couple of evenings I didn't get home until after 9pm.  That makes for a long day and although I tried to do a little damage control before going to bed, things are looking pretty grungy. 

There is a huge Apple Festival that takes place over in Bayfield, Wisconsin this weekend.  We have gone to enjoy the festivities in the past but I think laying low and avoiding crowds is my plan for the weekend.  It is always amazing to me how many people flock to this little town for the festival.  So do you have any big plans for the weekend or are you planning on keeping a low profile also?

The Apple Festival sounds like fun, but I can completely understand wanting to relax. My husband tried reading The Passage and couldn't really get into it. It is a huge book though. :)

Anymore, my weekends seem to be just as busy as my weeks. I hope you find the time to relax this weekend.

It was a long, stressful week at work for me, so my big plans include sleeping in, reading and relaxing.....

This weekend is same as all weekends for - cleaning, spending time with Hubby. Seriously, with a li'l one, I don't get time to do much cleaning on the weekdays and by the end of it - house looks quite bad :)
I am glad you had a good chat with Sheryl Woods!
I hope you have a relaxing weekend, and that Apple festival sounds good.

It will be a long time before I even thought about trying The Passage :)
