I’m going to cheat on this one since I didn’t write one last week and use a lot of stuff from the conference I attended last weekend. I probably won’t write one next week since I will be on vacation. I might not post at all July 6-10. So, here’s the good from the last week or so.
- I was able to attend the American Library Conference in DC this past weekend. It was a good conference with a lot of good speakers. I also just enjoyed taking a train instead of driving every day.
- Some of the speakers I got to hear – Jason Reynolds, Sonia Sotomayor, George Takei, Frank Miller, and Tomi Adeyemi.
- I not only heard Frank Miller speak but got to meet him and have him sign a book.
- I met Henry Winkler.
- I picked up a lot of ARCS of upcoming books, including the sequel to Grasshopper Jungle by Andrew Smith.
- I went to a lot of good sessions about issues in libraries.
- We went to see my favorite baseball team, the Braves, play in DC Saturday night and they won.
- I went to see my favorite band, Bowling For Soup, in concert on Tuesday night.
- I was able to get the yard mowed Friday before noon so I wasn’t out during the extremely hot part of the day.
- We were able to get our broken AC fixed quickly yesterday before I got extremely hot.
- We went to the local park within walking distance of our house to watch fireworks last night.
