The March Slice of Life Story Challenge
hosted by Two Writing Teachers
|Some books from CCBC Choices 2015|
Today I crawled out of bed at 5:50 even though it was a Saturday because there were books to see. I will take books over sleep. I drove to Madison (2 1/4 hrs) for CCBC Choices Day. It turns out I will also take books over food. They had wonderful breakfast treats, but after I filled my plate, I set it aside to eat during the meeting and went to read books instead. There were so many good ones to enjoy.
It was also fun to chat with old and new friends during the breaks and afterwards. Talking to book people is the best.
When all of the festivities were over, I went to the public library downtown expecting an event in the maker space, but alas, it wasn't to be. It had been postponed or cancelled. That opened up time for me to read some more in the children's section and even walk over to the modern art museum that I have been wanting to visit.
To top off the afternoon, I was able to spend some time with my son before I drove home. All in all, it was a fantastic day.
