The Girl and I are leaving for NYC tomorrow morning with Serena to do some touristy things and to attend Book Expo America on May 25-27. We have a good idea of the things we want to see and do, but we're also playing it by ear so we don't get overwhelmed. The Girl has never been to a big city on vacation before (she's been to D.C. and Baltimore, of course, but she considers those home), so she's been so excited she's had a hard time sleeping these last few nights. I'm excited, but I'm also sad that Jerry isn't coming with us. (However, I'm sure he's glad to have the house to himself so that no one complains when he watches ESPN or the same movies over and over again.)
Preparing for an entire week off from my job takes a lot of time and effort, and I've been really exhausted this week. So I apologize for not stopping by all of your blogs and for failing to pre-schedule some reviews while I'm gone. I will be completely unplugged until May 31, so I hope you all don't forget about me!
Since this post will be up during my break, I want to thank any new visitors to Diary of an Eccentric for stopping by. To get an idea of what I like to read, feel free to browse my book reviews, which you can access from the navigation bar at the top of the page. The Girl also reviews books here, and you'll find links to those on the same page. Additionally, check out the Authors page for links to interviews and guest posts and the War Through the Generations page for information on the yearly war-related reading challenges I co-host with Serena.
And to those of you attending BEA who would like to trade contact information, feel free to e-mail me at diaryofaneccentric at hotmail dot com. I'd love to meet you!
