Belated Return

We enjoyed our visit with my parents so much that we extended our vacation by one day. Then, when I got back, I was too lazy to blog.

With all the visiting and socializing, I hardly got any reading done at all. I brought Mirrored Heavens and The Sellsword with me, but I was too busy to read very much. Since we went through all our spending money for this pay period, I'll have lots of time to read this weekend. It's about time. I've done shockingly little reading these days.

What is it about going away that makes you get a jump in traffic? I would have thought the opposite would have happened . . . unless my absence makes this place more popular? My Google Reader shows ten more subscribers and my Technorati shows some shout-outs that I'll reciprocate in a Blogrolling post later in the weekend. It appears that my sheme of prewritting blog posts and letting Blogger post them on a schedule worked well.

I really ought to put up a vacation picture or two. Maybe I'll have the energy to do so tomorrow. Perhaps I'll even put up a mystery photo.

Did you go to any bookstores while on vacation? I used to tease my dad for always going to bookstores when he was away. I'd say he could go to Borders and B&N at home, so why do it on vacation? The last time I was away, what did I do? You guessed it! And I came home with a new book.

My justification is the selection is different in different parts of the country. It really is!

I never knew that. No, I didn't go to the bookstore; there really wasn't time. However, I did look in vain for a bookstore when we went to the mall.
