The Sunday Post and Stacking the Shelves–October 27th Edition

 

The Sunday Post is hosted by Kimba of The Caffeinated Book Reviewer.  This is a weekly meme where we can share news of the week and highlight new books received.

Wow, it’s almost Halloween!  Which means it’s almost Thanksgiving, and then it’s time for the holidays!  I am totally geeked for December – in addition to being my birth month, we are packing our bags and going to my favorite vacation spot – Disney World!  Despite being the most expensive place on Earth, both Dean and I enjoy aimlessly strolling around EPCOT, snacking on Mickey Bars, and trying out the many delicious restaurants.  I can hardly wait to get there!  This is the first time we will be visiting in December; we usually go over Thanksgiving weekend.  I’m curious to see what the crowds are like.

Do you have travel plans this winter? Where are you going?  And are you planning any Halloween festivities?  I’ll be hanging out at home, trying to keep the puppers from barking their fool little heads off at all of the little trick or treaters.

On an administrative note: Feedburner hasn’t been sending my daily emails to subscribers for almost a month, so I am researching alternatives.  If you have any suggestions, please let me know!  I tried Feedcat, but had several problems with it, so that has been crossed off my list.

    My husband and I LOVE Disney World! We’ve been twice in the 4 years we’ve been married! :) We usually go in November so we get the decorations but the weather isn’t usually as cold. Hope you guys have fun! And I hope you enjoy your new books this week!

    I’ve never been to Disney World though I have been to Disneyland. We have no holiday travel plans in the works. Just going to hunker down and enjoy the holidays here at home.

    Great book haul! :)

    Love Letters to the Dead and The Rule of Three were waiting for me after my break too. I’m not planning any vacations. I just have random days off during the school year. Summer is my time to travel. Come and see what I got at Ms. Martin Teaches Media and Inside of a Dog. Happy reading!

    I just came back from DW Thursday after spending a week there. It was awesome!!!!!!! Plus, it was so fun to see the Halloween decorations and parades. One of my goals is to go back during Christmas cuz I think the decorations would be out of this world! :)

    @Sandy – I don’t want to admit how many times we have gone! I am thinking it’s time to get a Disney Vacation Club for as often as we hit WDW.

    @A Voracious Reader – We have been to California Adventure with my nieces. That was a lot of fun, but everyone kept razzing me because I don’t like roller coasters. lol Hunkering down and enjoying the holidays at home sounds good, too!

    @Erinf – I have never been during any time of the year other than Thanksgiving/Christmas. I would love to go during the Food and Wine Festival and to see the Halloween decorations! The holiday decorations are fantastic – I will drag him to the resorts just to check out the trees (Animal Kingdom Lodge and Grand Floridian (gingerbread house) are great for that) and the Osborne lights are the highlight of the trip for me. I will sit and watch them for hours! And EPCOT adds about 20 minutes to the fireworks show starting Thanksgiving evening.

    @Jenea – If I ever lived that close to WDW I would be in big trouble! I would be there all the time!
