Hello everyone! So I missed last week's "It's Monday!" post because I was in Iceland. My husband and I had an amazing time there and I already wrote a few posts about it, one about our food adventures, and one Thoughts from Places video.
This past weekend I attended the Kids Read Comics event at the Ann Arbor District Library for the second year in a row. It was so much fun! I will definitely be going again next year.
I feel like I'm finally getting back on my reading game. Last school year really kicked my butt in terms of getting much reading done. Now that it's summer I feel like reading is enjoyable again because I don't have anything hanging over my head that makes me feel guilty for sitting down and reading instead of getting all that other stuff on my to-do list done.
So last week (and the week before), this is what I read and enjoyed:
A Curious Man: The Strange and Brilliant Life of Robert "Believe It Or Not" Ripley by Neal Thompson
