So it's Earth Day 2011

And like Vampire Bill once said, "we recycle in this house"! 
So don't forget that you can: 

"Planning to celebrate Earth Day today, but not sure what you can do to be “greener?” The solution could be a trip the   library, your community’s original renewable resource.
In addition to offering books on topics like organic gardens, water conservation and renewable forms of energy, your library and libraries across the country are doing their part when it comes to reducing, reusing and recycling."

And if you're looking for some fun "green" deals, keep these two in mind:

Starbucks is giving away a free coffee when you bring your own mug and reduce the use of disposable cups. Starbucks will even fill your reusable cup with Free Coffee (or tea)! (US/Canada)

One of my favorite beauty stores, Origins, is celebrating Earth Day with a FREE trade!! RSVP and check out the event:

So I know it's been a while...

funny pictures - Hard work pays off in the long run.

Things have been crazy with my schedule lately. There've been lots of changes at work, a trip to TLA, and of course the ever present mound of homework I have to contend with when I'd like nothing more than to ignore it, lol. 
But now I'm back from Austin and I'm working on really getting stuff done. There are too many books I've read and not even so much as clicked a star in goodreads for them, so that's gotta be remedied. 
And I'm excited about the books I get to read this month, especially Divergent by Veronica Roth, which I've heard nothing but good things about. I also got an advanced copy of Joseph Monninger's new book, The World As We Know It, as well as a psychological thriller called Before I Go to Sleep by S.J. Watson that sounds creepy and exciting enough to haunt my dreams once I start reading it, which I both love & hate :D
Another cool thing that happened was I by chance ran into other bloggers there! And then of course there were some great authors I got to meet and have sign books I purchased, and last but not least a chance to meet other library students, alumni, and faculty from my grad program. All in all it was a good time, and I'm glad for it all. 
So bear with my adjusting and I promise to have some giveaways soon to make up for my  absence :)
