Pencil Pants: Back from the Library Conference

I just got home from an amazing library conference.

I am happily stacking and snapping my finds. More about that later.


I put on my pencil pants and plan to spend the day writing.



I'm reading (still) Hamilton, along with Anne Lamont's newest, Hallelujah Anyway, as well as The Not-Quite States of America, and my online book group's A Pair of Jesus Boots.

What are you reading today?



What is the Sunday SalonImagine some university library's vast reading room. It's filled with people--students and faculty and strangers who've wandered in. They're seated at great oaken desks, books piled all around them,and they're all feverishly reading and jotting notes in their leather-bound journals as they go. Later they'll mill around the open dictionaries and compare their thoughts on the afternoon's literary intake....That's what happens at the Sunday Salon, except it's all virtual. Every Sunday the bloggers participating in that week's Salon get together--at their separate desks, in their own particular time zones--and read. And blog about their reading. And comment on one another's blogs. Think of it as an informal, weekly, mini read-a-thon, an excuse to put aside one's earthly responsibilities and fall into a good book. Click here to join the Salon.

The Sunday Post is a meme hosted by Kimba at Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It's a chance to share news and recap the past week.

Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia at The Printed Page. We share books that we found in our mailboxes last week. 
 It is now being hosted here.

Stacking the Shelves is a meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews in which you can share the books you've acquired.

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is where we share what we read this past week, what we hope to read this week…. and anything in between!  This is a great way to plan out your reading week and see what others are currently reading as well… you never know where that next “must read” book will come from! I love being a part of this and I hope you do too! It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is now being hosted at The Book Date.

  1. Ha! Excellent pants (or leggings, as I think we'd call them over here!). I want a pair!

    1. Yes, we call them leggings here, too, but doesn't pencil pants sound so much lovelier?

  3. Those pants are so cute!

    I started the day reading The Housekeeper, and then switched to The Princess Diarist for a while. I cleaned off the patio, took a long shower, and watched The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks.

    Now I'm ready to go out for a bit...Barnes & Noble?

    Thanks for visiting my blog.

    1. You are wise to shut down the computer. It can be so distracting.
