Booktalks update

I have loaded the October update of Bootalks Quick and Simple.  No, your eyes don't deceive you.  There was no September update.  I have been so busy, I have had no time to read very much let alone update the website.  I have finally finished my BER handbook and put together the finishing touches of some new workshops I'm doing this fall.  I've also finished writing the booktalking course for YALSA.  I got it uploaded just in time for the course to begin on Monday.  I still have to get back to work on the new book but I'm feeling a bit less pressure right now.  I am speaking at the Iowa conference this Friday but then I have no more workshops to do until December. 

But things outside of library land have continued to go crazy.  Yesterday, a tree fell on my son's new car.  He had totaled his car last month and we just got a new to him replacement.  It now has no back window.  I have complained to the city about this tree and they even came out to look at it last week but said it didn't need to come down.  In the past year, one branch fell into the road, another fell into our driveway -- fortunately no cars were there.  But we weren't so lucky yesterday.  I have no idea what will happen.  It is a city tree so hopefully they will pay for the window.  It just missed a man walking his dog.

Well, so much for my long weekend of doing nothing but catching up on my reading.
