Reading Interruptus

I've fallen behind in my reading and postings. I have no excuse or reason other than life's constant interruptions. In my case this is dealing with elderly parents, assorted family drama sagas, power outages (wind blows - power goes off, rain falls - power goes off, snow falls - power goes off) and other assorted issues including preparing for an upcoming move. 

The next few weeks are going to be interesting as I try to keep up with my reading/reviewing/blogging and assorted family commitments, as well as packing and then the actual move. Almost forgot, I'm also attending the Book Bloggers and Publishers Online Conference until 4/17. If you're an author or fellow book blogger it's not too late to register. The conference starts today at 12:00 PM EST. 

On the upside, I spent a leisurely Saturday on 4/9/2011 with family in Lewisburg, WV (Voted America's Coolest Small Town) at the WV Chocolate Festival. Mark your calendar for April 14, 2012 if you plan to be in the area for a "Chocolate Tasting Extravaganza." This year's event provided 36 tastings and the choices were amazing. I'm still obsessing over the chocolate pasta (yes...pasta!) with hazelnut ganache. 

OK, back to reading and books...I'm currently reading an ARC of Original Sin by Beth McMullen, courtesy of LibraryThing.com. I hope to have this review posted soon. Until then, happy reading!
