This is an essential lesson for all book lovers with children or other dependents. The bathroom is generally considered sacred territory and by announcing 'I'm going to the bathroom' you can earn yourself a few precious moments of alone-time. I often use this trick to get a bit of reading done (and it may work for other hobbies as well), though I can't do it too frequently or the children will get suspicious.
Unfortunately I can't sneak my computer into the bathroom with me so while I have gotten quite a bit of reading done I haven't managed to find the time to write reviews for most of those books. These past few weeks have been particularly hectic, as will the next couple of weeks be, leading up to Passover, and so I'm afraid I might not be able to post as frequently as usual, during this time.
Some of the books that I look forward to reviewing when I get the chance are Clara and Mr. Tiffany by Susan Vreeland (just finished it- fantastic book!), The King of the Crags by Stephen Deas (also really good), Catch Me if You Can by Frank Abagnale Jr (absolutely wild) and The House on Durrow Street by Galen M. Beckett (just OK), so look out for those.
And in the meantime, since I have Passover on my mind, here are a couple of fun Passover-related videos.
The first video is a musical parody based on Diddy's "Coming Home" and Cee Lo Green's "Forget You". It was recorded just a few minutes from where I live so you can see here some of the beautiful desert scenery that convinced me to moved to this particular area (which some refer to as "the middle of nowhere").
And this is one is really cute, though you do have to know the basics of Passover in order to get it.
