Holiday Weekend!

IN THE NEWS:Suspect throws rubber cement at Pittsburgh police. Read more HERE.


Hope everyone is enjoying their holiday weekend!

I'm going mattress shopping with the family in a bit, but before I sign off, a few things:

1) went to the library this weekend and was SO happy because they had two titles in that I have been dying to read. Yay!

2) got my edits back from my editor for Sunny Days for Sam on Friday. Boo! I haven't even looked at them. We've been just staring each other down whenever I enter my office. But today might be the day I actually try to tackle them.

3) this Friday I'll be spotlighting the new Kristin Billerbeck book, A Billion Reasons Why and I'll be giving away my ARC copy of it. It's really good. (hint hint) So stop by then. :)
And that's all for me.

Enjoy the rest of your break (if you have one).

Do you have snow too? Makes me so done with winter.

We are headed to the library too today. Really hope I find some good ones.

Jump on those mattresses (the salespeople just love that).

Karen Akins said...

Wow, that news story brings a whole new meaning to, "I am rubber, you are glue..."

Hope your mattress hunt leads you to something plush. And may your tackling of edits lead to a firmer story. :)

Jennifer, you make everything sound fun!!

We have a tempurpedic... I like it, but they are kind of expensive...

I don't have a story staring me down, just a lab that wants to go for a walk...

Sunny Days For Sam is such a cute title. Hope you have time to see your edits soon. I'm sure they will encouraging or at least very helpful.

I hope you start your edits soon! I just want you to know I've been requesting your novel to be made available for Kindle everyday since Valentines. I'm sort of set on reading this on my ipad.

I love it when I have a huge pile of great books to read! I mean, seriously... is there anything better in life?

Suspect throws rubber cement on police? LOL. That is so odd.

Good luck with the edits Jennifer! Enjoy your books (I'm doing the same, but I'm waiting for one book. I'm #39 on the waiting list. *sigh*)

Julie Musil said...

Well, I hope you got the mattress you were looking for AND that the evil edits turned out to be fluffy little bunnies :D

Shannon O'Donnell said...

Good luck with your edits! My hubby and I just bought a new mattress last week. LOL. :-)

Nick Thomas said...

Never run with scissors or throw rubber cement.

And, Happy Presidents Pets Day - the day after Presidents Day, as I like to call it. In the US, we love our presidents..... pets. See my blog if you’re in the mood for a good ol' irreverent howl.

I'm so glad to see somebody else utilize the library system. I'm usually the only one! I even get DVDs from the library.

Kara said...

Good luck with your edits!

Caryn Caldwell said...

Edits do sound scary. I hope they're not too drastic and that you're happy with them. And yay for libraries. I love ours! In fact, I'm there right now. (Yay, too, for laptops and wifi!) Enjoy your reading!

I had a classmate in Elementary school who also used rubber cement as a weapon. Why couldn't he just sniff it like the rest of us?
