Good morning everyone! I'm super surprised I'm up early this morning - with it being so cloudy and rainy outside it's just a day to stay in bed. My boyfriend's parents were over yesterday and we spent the day at Old Sturbridge Village - they had their annual Redcoats & Rebels event where you get to see a Revolutionary reenactment. Then they came over and we made an excellent dinner. So, no wonder why I was tired - I went to bed at 9:30 PM last night! Today is less exciting, chores and such.
I wanted to share some author news with you. For any of you who have read/are interested in reading Esther Friesner's books, she has a new website just for her Princesses of Myth series. I featured her books a while back during a YA Historicals week and have a couple of her books on my shelf to read. An excerpt from the press release states:
Esther Friesner's Princesses of Myth series has chronicled Helen of Troy and Nefertiti as young adults. Described as the "website where girls make history," readers will be able to blog about their reading, participate in contests and follow the development of the series. Teachers will find classroom resources.You can find her new website here: www.princessesofmyth.com.
