Just reminding you all that I have two give-aways going, both for excellent middle grade books of a fantastical sort
The Time-traveling Fashionista on Board the Titanic (ends Saturday night)
The Extraordinary Education of Nicholas Benedict (ends Monday night)
I wish I could stay home and read and blog and work in the garden today, but sadly, duty calls and I'll be at a work-related conference all day instead. It will be interesting (especially the question of whether or not I have prepared sufficiently for my own talk, in as much as my innate optimism gets me into trouble more than I would like), and perhaps it will even be enjoyable, but it's not the same, somehow, as a nice quiet day at home....
