Just some news ...

I'm sorry I didn't get around to blogging yesterday. I went with Rick to his dentist appointment and while he was inside, I started reading a book I bought awhile back. I read four chapters during his appointment and then couldn't put the book down when I got home. I just finished it this morning. It was Michelle Morgan's Nefertiti. It's one of Target's featured book club books at the moment. It was really, really good. It's not often I get to read "grown-up" books, more or less historical fiction, and I almost forgot how much I enjoyed it. Usually, when I read adult books, they're political, which is a far cry from what I write myself. I'm already planning on getting Michelle's other books! Once I get into a good book, I have a hard time getting anything else done.

Today is the last day of the coloring contest for Lemur Troops & Critter Groups. I was going to announce the winner today, but I think I'm going to hold off until later on. If anyone else wants to send in their children's coloring page, there is still time. I'll make the cut-off time midnight tonight. I will be posting a blog tour tomorrow for Beth Reinke's picture book, In My Bath, so I hope you will join me for that. It's a cute book! There will even be a contest for a set of bath toys, so if you have little ones, you won't want to miss it. Anyway, since I said the last day of the coloring contest was June 22nd, I decided to give the whole day to get drawings sent in. I've gotten a bunch so far and they're all awesome! If your child has done one or would like to do one today, there's still a little more time! Thanks so much!

  1. What a fun thing to get lost in a good book. Dangerous, but fun!
