Up Next:I temporarily stopped listening to When You Are Engulfed in Flames by David Sedaris because I will be going to the Decatur Book Festival this coming weekend and I thought my husband might enjoy listening to it with me on the drive. I'm thinking The House of the Spirits by Isabel Allende will be my next print read.
Events:I'll be attending the Decatur Book Festival on Saturday and Sunday. Is anyone else going? I went last year and had a great time! I saw The Help on Sunday and loved it! I'll try to get a review up this week.
