#4 Dry Spells
Predictably the next few weeks will be dry spells with no books arriving, which honestly makes me kind of sad, but I understand its temporary, that it won't last forever, I hope. But still though. I am really wanting some books that have recently come out, but yeah, expensive, and I am pretty much reading and reviewing books from a publishing company and some publicists. (Also need to work on reviews...)
This week I went to pack meeting of cub scouts and am proud of my son. Although my son and I have shown up previous times with den meetings, he didn't get the badges for times we showed up (Little background: His den class has at least 30 kids, 27 boys and 3 girls, and two men run the den, and when I asked I was told that next month he'll get badges.) but he stood there quietly on stage without crying or making a scene. On Friday am planning Cicis (In Russian Cicis means breasts) Pizza and this Sunday will be den meeting. My son also got top part of cub scout uniform and on 5th of November there will be a sailing boat competition. We are looking forward to Halloween!

October 28: Halloween Freebie!
Halloween is in just a couple of days, so this Friday, write about whatever spooky-season topic you want! Some ideas are: your favorite horror novels, favorite fall reads, or your favorite places to read and write in fall!
I'm really not sure what to write about. While I was doing Top Ten Tuesday, I realized taht there are a ton of supernatural themed novels that I read and never placed them. As a teenager I was a big vampire fan and yes, I have read few Anne Rice novels, which I didn't enjoy and I also realized that its the same character over and over in every book, just that his name was different (conflicted Catholic man who is last of his aristocratic family.) I also forgot to include Han Kang's novels The Vegetarian and Human Acts as well as Wild and Wicked Things by Francesca May.
Maybe in the future I can get more ideas on how to write this particular topic.
