Well, not really in downtown Tulsa (that was taken as we drove past downtown) but with my wonderful in-laws. We also took a side trip to my sister's house to meet up with my niece and her little boy, whom we hadn't yet met. He's nearly 11 months old (walking a few steps at a time, although he's crawling in this photo) and such a sweet boy!
I only finished one book on this trip: The Wind is My Mother by Bear Heart. It's so fascinating that I've considered getting an extra copy to pass around. I'll tell you more about that, later. I also recently finished reading The Housekeeper and The Professor by Yoko Ogawa. It's a sweet story but I can't say it was a favorite.
On the way to Tulsa, we stopped at Hastings Books & Music in Conway, Arkansas. I love Hastings and I've so missed bookstores, since Borders' tragic closing. So, I had a great time there. I bought a book about explorers that looks fun. And, then I went to another Hastings near my niece's house and bought several books. I'll have to grab those and bring them to my desk to chat about, later, but I started to read one of them: Amaryllis in Blueberry. I liked the writing style and the idea, but I was finding the characters too unlikable to keep my interest, so I decided to put that aside and started reading The Tapestry of Love by Rosy Thornton, which I'm loving.
Since I'm still having a great deal of difficulty concentrating to read, I've decided to go ahead and remove all but Tapestry from my sidebar. It's really the only book I'm reading, at this point. Hopefully, my reading will pick up soon. But, in the meantime . . . off to tidy and prepare to decorate for Christmas! Happy reading!
