On to non-book related matters, I had a great time on my trip. That's the longest I've ever been away from home. Here are some pictures:
The first picture is actually taken at midnight. No joke. The sun never set.
The second picture is of me wading in one of the last untouched rivers in that country. You could drink out of it. Which we did. It was delicious water.
The third picture is of a field at twilight. I just thought it was really pretty. :P
The fourth picture is a sign for a library! I actually got some books at a shop there, in a foreign language, but cool nonetheless. I got Twilight, New Moon, and Audrey, Wait! They also had a lot of Meg Cabot books, and I did see a copy of Airman by Eoin Colfer. But overall, they don't have a ton of YA fiction there, foreign or American.
The fifth picture is of some really cute street musicians playing at a public fountain. They were really good and the whole vibe of the square was wonderful.
The sixth picture is of the changing of the guards at the royal palace. That was a very cool thing to see
(Wanna guess what country I was in? Leave your guess in the comments, and if you're right, you might be rewarded later on...)
I don't know if you guys are at all interested in my trip or pictures, but if you want me to post more, I will. I had a ton of fun!
The next subject of this exceedingly long post is how clueless I currently am. I came back and had over 1,000 posts on my google reader. I read through a few of them and found some cool stuff; like how the second Twilight trailer came out! What do you guys think of it? But I decided that it would take forever to read everything, so I didn't. I'd love it so much if you guys would let me know about some of the cool stuff that's happened over the last month. Any good reviews, contests, posts, info, that I need to know about? Please, please, please fill me in!
And lastly, the contest that I've been foreshadowing for, oh, about 2 months, is in the works, I promise. Look for more info on that in about I week, I hope. Thanks so much to everyone who commented on my Summer Hiatus Reviews, I appreciate it a ton. And now that I'm back home, look for more reviews, more often!
