It’s official – I have to put huge stacks of books away before I invite people over for dinner on Tuesday. . . by “put away,” I’m not sure what I mean since I don’t have near enough bookshelf space, but perhaps I’ll be creative. Does anyone have any ideas? I was thinking I could make book ottomans by all the chairs, but then it occurred to me that it might be a walking hazard.

This week, I have gotten three books to review.
Admit One by Emmett James – the Amazon reviews make it look great.
Theft of the Master by Edwin Alexander – a bit of a thriller,
and Disturbing Questions: Has God Stopped Blessing America by Ron Borque – that one should make me good and angry and produce a spirited review.
Stay tuned.

As far as my one strictly reading challenge – Once Upon a Time – I’m falling further and further behind. I hope to catch up in the next few weeks, when school ends Friday, but we’ll just have to see. I don’t know how so many of you keep going.

On the Ecojustice Challenge, I’m fairing better – keeping up with my commitments. So that’s a good thing.

But otherwise, I’m buried in research papers. I hope to knock a bunch of those out today, in between cleaning, planting flowers, and doing something with those precarious towers of books by the bed. That’s my idea of a good day.

I see on many blogs around the universe today that you’re all planning your weekend reading (I’ll be joining you with that next weekend), so I wondered – what does everyone do on a typical Saturday that’s involved with books and writing? Think boldly here – do you take walks to ponder what you’ve read or what you’re writing? Do you have dinner parties or cook-outs or camp outs where you sit around with people and chat? Do you read to your children? To me, all of these things are bookish for they all involved words (unless, of course, you’re one of those beautiful people who actually think in images). I’d love to know how you guys spend your weekends with bookish pursuits.

Happy Saturday.
