This is also the time of year when they Brooklyn Flea Market moves outside Saturday and Sunday. In fact, it happened this weekend. This year the flea market is going to be at a new spot on Sundays in Williamsburg on the water. I didn't go today but the when it gets a little warmer I want to check it out. I haven't been to Williamsburg much (sad since it's not far at all) so I'm looking forward to walking around, checking out the shops and spending some time at the flea market, especially the books section! But there are great jewelry and T-shirt vendors as well as art and music, too The Saturday spot is very close by, barely 10 minutes on the bus so I usually shop there. It's a small spot, smaller when it gets crowded and it's not on the water. I'm sure the Williamsburg spot will become very popular. A lobster & a milkshake sitting by the water sounds pretty good, uh?!
Next weekend I'm participating in Dewey's 24-hour Read-a-Thon. It was fun but exhausting last year! I have to remember pick out some books to read before Friday. Last time I realized smaller books are better because if you finish a book it feels like a good accomplishment! I hope if you haven't signed up yet, you will.
I finished The Raising ~ Laura Kasischke and I'm three-quarters of the way through Mr. Chartwell ~ Rebecca Hunt. I've just started Fury ~ Salman Rushdie and will start Galore ~ Michael Crummey by this week for Jen and Nicole's April Book Club later in the month. I think I'll probably start the ARC of Dreams of Joy ~ Lisa See, sequel to Shanghai Girls or Secret Daughter ~Shilpi Somaya Gowda. Love these kinds of decisions!
What are you reading today? Whatever book you choose, I hope you enjoy it!
