What I’m Looking Forward to This Week
Ithaca Book Sale! Two times a year the Tompkins County Library holds a massive used book sale. Did I say massive?!? Megan and I will be heading up there today: she will head to the children’s book section to restock her classroom shelves, I will head to the theology section, and we will meet up again in the history section. To top off the shopping spree we will hit up Moe’s for lunch!

I am currently reading:
