I know you guys will say I have nothing to complain about, but it's been quite hot here in San Diego over the last week. Well, by quite hot I mean high-80s. Which really isn't all that hot, since it hit 116 in Phoenix last week, but they've got AC. Had hoped to do some work in the yard, but after mowing the lawn yesterday afternoon in the full sun at 86 degrees with the push mower, I was drenched. Thank goodness for public libraries!
This is the second or third time I've dropped by, and I must say,it is a rather charming library. Lots of real-wood furniture (everything inside is done in the Arts & Crafts style) and plenty of seating! I couldn't really find any good interior pictures so I'll have to take some next time I visit, but mom and penny, you would like it.
I meant to do some more serious reading (i.e. for the Journal Club presentation I have this Thursday), but I was in the mood for some brain candy so picked up some young adult books that I'd looked at before (don't ask, it's so trite I'm embarassed). Although I wish I had remembered about the Unshelved Book Club, which keeps suggesting really interesting books (or maybe they just have interesting reviewers!). The Long Earth by Terry Pratchett and Stephen Baxter or Heads in Beds by Jacob Tomsky are two on my list (maybe I should put a hold on them now).
I guess I'll have to head back sometime this week! Any hot summer afternoon reading suggestions?
