First a reminder, my giveaway for Montana Destiny by R. C. Ryan is still open. I didn’t love it, but you might.
This past week I finished listening to The Deepest Water by Kate Wilhelm, which I enjoyed so much that I’ve started Death Qualified by the same author, part of her Barbara Holloway series. I also finished Proust’s Overcoat by Lorenza Foschini and should have my comments up later this week. Friday night, I started The Devil Amongst the Lawyers by Sharyn McCrumb, the newest of her Ballad novels, one I’ve been looking forward to.
This past weekend, Dave, Amber and I went to the Origins Game Fair in Columbus with a bunch of people and had a great weekend. For us, the weekend starts with a party at my brother’s house, a bunch of people, lots of food and games. Then Saturday we went Origins, played a bunch of new games, did some gawking at the outrageous outfits.
Here’s a list of some of the games we played. Some were good, some silly, but I’ll let you know what I thought of them individually through the next month or so.
- Castle Panic
- Duck! Duck! Safari!
- Piece o’ Cake
- Hey! That’s My Fish!
- Ninja Versus Ninja
Our group ended up buying several others, too, that I’m looking forward to trying.
The art show was wonderful again this year, and I was glad Amber got to see all of the wonderful fantasy art out there, from her beloved dragons, to fairies, to things that were just out there.
While we were gone, I received Black Jack Derringer Book 1: Ace of Spades by K. H. Koehler in the mail, which I won at vvB32 Reads. Thanks!
I don’t know when I’m going to find time to read. This week, we’ve got all the usual stuff and a couple of softball games. Next weekend is July 4th, which means cookouts and fireworks. It should be fun, though.
What’s up for you this week? [tweetmeme source=”carolsnotebook” only_single=false http://carolsnotebook.com/2010/06/28/rehashing-the-week-2/]
