Back, I think

My blog vacation turned out to be longer than my beach vacation! I actually got back from the beach a week ago, but between playing catch-up, and preparing for my son's twelfth birthday party yesterday, I haven't had time to post.

I had a wonderful time at the beach; the weather was perfect and I spent a lot of time just lying on the beach and reading. It was very relaxing. I finished rereading Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, and read three out of the four books I took with me to read: First Light by Rebecca Stead, Middleworld (Jaguar Stones Trilogy Book 1) by J&P Voelkel, and The Reincarnationist by M.J. Rose. I didn't get a chance to read The Dirt Eaters (The Longlight Legacy book 1) by Dennis Foon because we bought a copy of Skulduggery Pleasant at a bookstore near the boardwalk, and I read that instead. I'm still looking forward to reading The Dirt Eaters as soon as I get a chance.

I hope to post reviews of these books this week, with the exception of The Reincarnationist. Since that's an adult book, I think I won't review it here, but I'm going to try to post a short review to Goodreads.com. I've also finally joined the discussion of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows over at the Scholar's Blog Spoiler Zone. I hope that I'm not too late; if there's anyone left in the world who still feels like talking about Deathly Hallows, won't you please join me in the discussion?

It's definitely not to late from MY point of view, to join in the discussion - and I was thinking yesterday that I should put a note on my Blog to remind people that the discussion is ongoing - but between DW fiction and watching David Tennant being awesome in "Taking Over the Asylum", I didn't get to it - but I will today !

Great! I hope we can get the discussion going again. Thanks. I hope your DW fiction is going well.
