Just a heads up that I'm over at Austen Authors today talking about "Austen Character Encounters" (aka, meeting people in real life who resemble in manners or appearance a character that populates one of Jane's novels). I'll confess to having met a modern-day Mr. Collins or two...
Also, there's a Goodreads giveaway for U.S. residents that just began this week. Winners will get one of ten autographed advanced reading copies of A Summer in Europe. If you're interested, you can enter here!
Finally, just because school's starting next week (YAY!!!), it doesn't mean summer's really over. I had the first line from this song running through my head all day yesterday so, perhaps, a little 1984 "Magic" from The Cars is in order:
Ahhh, the Eighties... That's what turns me upside down. I'm in the mood to get just a bit nostalgic this weekend and will probably have a YouTube video marathon tonight. I want to see John Waite sing "Restless Heart" and "Change." I could use a Huey Lewis and the News boost, too. And Journey. And Asia. And REO Speedwagon. And Bon Jovi, of course. (But I listen to them even when I'm not feeling nostalgic. ;) What were some of your favorite '80s tunes? What's a song I should definitely cue up this evening??
Have a great weekend, everyone!
