Leaving, books and snow

This is just going to be a quick entry, because we're off back to the UK today and I've got packing to do. We haven't done a whole lot since being in Michigan. We've met up with a few friends, spent lots of time in cafes and bought so many books we've also had to buy another suitcase to carry them all back with us. Sadly, I have to go back to work next week, so I'm not sure when I'm going to get a chance to read them all.

In the last couple of days, I've bought:

Jim Hines: Goblin Quest
Liz Williams: Snake Agent
Hilari Bell: The Last Knight

Can't even remember the rest of the books. It's all a bit overwhelming. Steph bought one about palaces, though, I recall. Surprisingly.

Yesterday, it snowed pretty much all day. Today, it's sunny and bright, but the snow is all still there. Steph has a few photos up on her flickr account. Here's one of me getting snowed on in my giant coat:

I always start off a plane trip determined to use the time to write or plot out my novel. I always end up watching crappy movies. This time I'm determined I'm going to actually do writing. I'll let you know which crappy movies I end up watching.

Very soon we'll be back with Maya. I can't wait.
