Updates: Cards, Clothes, Comics & Books

My business cards for BEA came in yesterday! Small and simple, but I think they'll do. :)


This past Saturday, I attempted one major session of clothes shopping--and survived. ;) The good news: I found a new pair of sneakers and stumbled upon some good suit separates on sale, thus checking off blazers from my list and contributing to my law school collection. (The clothes are from Boscov's in case you wanted to know.)

The bad news: I didn't find a good pair of walking sandals, so I'll need to hit a shoe sale sometime soon.

Also, in case you didn't know, this Saturday, being the first in May, is Free Comic Book Day (FCBD). It's usually the one time a year I hit my local comic store for the freebies and to buy other stuff at 40% off. I'm still on my book-buying ban, so I may need to skip this year, but it's a great way to check out comics without spending a ton (or anything). :)

Read:

Jackaby felt more like a suspense novel than a mystery because we only had Rook's limited observations and none of Jackaby's knowledge of the supernatural--similar to the dynamic in Sherlock Holmes. But it was still an enjoyable read. I saw several of the twists coming, and I felt like Jackaby was never as fleshed out as I'd have liked, but it was entertaining enough.

Currently Reading:


I've been in a bit of a slump again. Extra tiring days at work plus Netflix equals limited page counts. But I am determined to start Dragons next, and not just because its archive date is fast approaching. ;)

That's it for this week's happenings! Thanks for stopping in and check back tomorrow for my review of  Illusionarium by Heather Dixon! In which, like Alice, a boy from an air city gets sucked into another world full of magic drugs. :)

  1. I love blazers :)

    The cards look great!! Unfortunately I can't go to BEA :( I was all set to do it, but then I found out my co-worker already has that week off so I can't.

    1. I'm generally a jeans and t-shirt girl, but now I can still do that and look a little dressier...with a blazer! Lol.

      Thank you! But I'm so sad you won't be able to go. :( We'll have to meet up another time. Let me know if you're ever in the Philly and/or NYC and/or DC area.

  4. Oo love the business cards! And yey for surviving clothes shopping, I seriously hate having to do that, haha. You're going to look so spiffy in your professional clothes :D How are you liking Dragons if you've had a chance to start it? I need to read that soon too!

    1. Thanks, Anya! Yes, clothes shopping is not what I would call "fun." I haven't started Dragons yet; I'm still trying to finish out a sewing project (which is kicking my butt), but I'll let you know once I do. :)

  5. Great cards! You are going to have a blast at BEA! Wish Anya and I could go this year. Maybe next year we can all room together! This year it's ALA for us! I hope you love Dragons of Dorcastle!

    1. Thanks, Tabitha! We'll see about next year. Fingers crossed the law school schedule (and budget) will allow for it because I'd love to see you guys! :)

  6. Love the cards! I didn't have time to get professionally printed ones done for my blog, so I'll just have to stick with my home printed ones. Oh well. :)

    1. Thank you! And no worries; though there are certainly plenty of opportunities to hand them out, they're not as mandatory at BookCon as they are at BEA.
