Random Saturday Thoughts

*I created a new menu (above) that highlights some of my travel posts. It includes a few of the places that I've traveled to since I started blogging and a few of my favorite locations that I've visited before blogging.  I included some of my favorite restaurants, bars, hotels, etc.  Let me know what you think! As I travel to more locations, I hope to update this section of the blog. For now, it's a work in progress.

*Check out this amazing Pride and Prejudice book purse that my friend Katie made for me. If you remember, I wrote about her book purses before. I love it! If you are interested in obtaining a book purse of your own, be sure to check out her Esty shop, Katie Did Create.

*So, I am obsessed with the new Starz show Camelot. I saw episode one last night (a sneak preview, because it doesn't come out until April) and I was hooked.  I thought the casting was perfect.  Eva Green is a fantastic Morgan and Joseph Fiennes is a captivating Merlin.  I can't wait to see episode two. 

*Also, I read Women Know Everything by Karen Weekes and it's the perfect book for quote lovers. It includes fun quotes from a variety of different women, such as Betty White, Michelle Obama, Tina Fey, Lady Gaga and Princess Diana.  What I also like is the fact that it organizes quotes by topics and the topics include everything from success, procrastination, behavior, and being single.  A big thank you to Quirk Books for sending me this book. I plan to use some of the quotes in my classroom this month, because March is Women's History Month after all!

*There are many fabulous e-books on sale for the Nook.
