What’s Up Saturday

A few weekends ago I started doing “What’s Up Saturday” – and listed out my favorites for the week. It’s been 3 weeks now and I am finally getting around to posting another one! Getting married keeps you pretty busy. So these links are for the last 3 weeks… (I star these things in my Google Reader to keep track.)

Deals and Good Reads

What I’m Reading (Books)

  • For the honeymoon I kept reading material pretty easy – on the plane to Maui I read The Death and Life of Charlie St. Cloud. It reminded me a bit of Nicholas Sparks’ novels, but also of Mitch Albom’s The Five People You Meet in Heaven. Charlie St. Cloud is being made into a movie (it came out yesterday?) with Zac Efron. The book is one man’s interpretation of what happens to us after we die. There’s more to it than that ;)
  • Now I’m reading The Seer and the Sword (by Victoria Hanley), which I got at a used bookstore for $3.75 in Lahaina. I think it’s a young adult novel (it’s a very easy read) and it’s kind of sci-fi-ish/historical fiction. It’s set in medieval times and there is a girl who can see the future and there is also a magical sword. I’m liking it! I’m guessing it’s a romance but I haven’t gotten that far yet.
  • Also got a few more books at the used bookstore and at B&N before we left, but I will save them for when I actually start reading them…

What are your finds this week? Any new blogs I should check out? Any blog gossip I’ve missed while I’ve been in Maui? (I’m blogging this at 7am local time, waiting for Bobby to wake up. We’ve been up super early this whole trip so I shouldn’t have to wait much longer.)

    WOW! I’m so honored you mentioned me! I must say, I’m slowly making progress on my habit changing, those tips work!

    I love bargain books. In fact, I need a new one myself and have to check out the “used” section at B&N myself.

    Anyway, glad you’re back at it and loved your pictures on Facebook ;)

    I think blog gossips ought to be done face to face, don’t you think? ;-)
    So sad you won’t be in NYC when I come visit next week! :’-(
