Weekend Ramblings 3

I've been on a reading tear since my reading block was lifted. I hope to have reviews of the following posted within the next few days: Love At Absolute Zero by Christopher Meeks and I Loved You First by Reena Jacobs (don't forget to enter the giveaway for the ebook). I've also reread several Anne Frasier stories, namely Hush and Sleep Tight




I'm travelling this weekend with family (a cousin, her daughter and my niece) to Georgia to attend JapanFest. For those of you close to Atlanta, GA you don't want to miss this two-day festival celebrating all things Japanese. This year 100% of the revenue from ticket package sales will be going to earthquake and tsunami relief. Some of this year's activities include: Ikebana (flower arranging), Sumo wrestling, Taiko drumming, Kite making, Japanese Embroidery, Chado Urasenke (Tea Ceremony) and more. This is the 25th year for this multicultural festival and not to be missed. In honor of JapanFest, I'll be reading The Housekeeper and the Professor by Yoko Ogawa. 


What are you reading this weekend? Do you have exciting weekend plans? If so, please share. Have a great weekend and happy reading!
