Monthly Wrap-Ups: August

School sucks. I just wanted to put that on the table first. While everyone else is just getting ready to go back, I’m already a month in and junior year has been my busiest and hardest yet. I’m super behind on my reviews, hardly checking Twitter, and I can go days without even touching my blog when before I was on almost every day. I loosened my schedule at the beginning of the summer, and I think I’ll stick with it for a while.

Bookish Things: 

  • 837 Bookmarks
  • I went to the Decatur Book Festival last Saturday, and it was amazing, per usual. I volunteered so I got to talk to the authors more. The only bad thing? Rain! I’ll post more information about the festival next week (stay tuned!). IMG_20140901_092136_511
  • I have more books to add to my list of signed books. Did I mention how much I love this festival?

Non-Bookish Things:

  • As stated earlier, school started and I’m doggy-paddling along, trying not to drown in a sea of work.
  • I found my name on a Coke bottle. It wasn’t that hard, Erin isn’t a very obscure name.

    • I was wondering if you’d be there (an email about your whereabouts was in the making)! I was surprised I didn’t see you as one of the panel authors, though Sylvia and I did find a stack of Find Me’s and looked around to see if you were hiding anywhere near.
