Me on This Week's Book Week (12)

Here it is again, my differently named but still pretty much the same thing as Stacking the Shelves (hosted by Tynga's Reviews). So busy this weekend. Baseball game, eye doctor, Shakespeare (this is happening this afternoon). Why did everyone decide to cram stuff into the weekend this week? Fail. I've got a bunch of stuff coming up but it's all spaced out. Sort of. Book camp prep, dentist, doctor, book camp, trip.

Last week was really nice, then Wednesday happened and it was so cool and cloudy out. At least the Lower Mainland is consistent in its confusing weather patterns. Then Friday happened and it rained. Then Saturday happened and I hate that "free healthcare" doesn't cover eye exams (or the dentist), but it did cover my broken ankle surgery last February (my dad said that if we lived in the US it might've cost close to $30K). If I ever do need glasses, I'm going to hate it.

You know, I was doing fine this week then had a weird semi-depressive moment Friday evening which sucked. And it bugged the crap out of me. *sigh* I'm so looking forward to volunteering again at the book camp, that week is always lots of fun.

My review schedule for the next couple of months is packed with the exception of a couple of open spots, and it's all mostly e-galleys. My preferences still lean much more towards paper books than e-books, but if this is how I'm able to read so many review copies this summer and fall, then I'm okay with it.

So, since I'm going to be gone that first week of September, I'm not going to have any posts going up until I get back and recover from any kind of jet-lag. Which sounds weird, considering our flight gets into Vancouver at 10 in the morning. On a Saturday. Weird. Also, I'm still on the lookout for any YA event-related stuff happening in New York that first week in September, so let me know if you know of any. :)
