Whew! What a crazy week it’s been at the Pathologically Literate Household! The Boy had friends over most days this week, and we had sleepovers here three nights this week. That’s just a little too social butterfly-ish for Moi, thank you very much. We will definitely be playing it much more low-key in the coming week (unbeknownst to The Boy). The Boy had two baseball games during the week, baseball pictures on Saturday, and on Sunday he attended a baseball clinic with the Lincoln Saltdogs players followed by watching a Saltdogs game with Poppie for a Fathers Day/Birthday surprise (yes, Poppie’s birthday was on Father’s Day this year!). Personally, I hid at home with Ruby amid all of the Thunderstorm/Tornado Watches and Warnings… It was the perfect time for some blogging and, of course, reading:

- A Mighty Long Way: My Journey to Justice at Little Rock Central High School by Carlotta Walls LaNier
- The Plague of Doves by Louise Erdrich
John Sandford’s Prey series is one of my guilty pleasures – I’ve been reading it since I was in high school and it just doesn’t get old. I got to read a review copy of The Last Whisper in the Dark, the sequel to The Last Kind Words by Tom Piccirilli, which was exciting – you can look for a review closer to the time of publication. The Postmistress was totally different than what I’d expected – in a good way. I also enjoyed Learning To Swim – it’s the first installment in a new series by Sara J. Henry, of which there are only two books so far – the second one is A Cold and Lonely Place. I’ve got some great picks for the upcoming week’s reads, so I’m ready to get this week started!
Happy Father’s Day to all of you Dads out there, and to all of you single Moms who are bustin’ your butts doing it all on your own! Keep on fighting the good fight, ladies!
