However, things should be perking up because I just got back from a trip to the New York Finger Lakes region and got to visit one of my all-time favourite bookstores, the Paperback Place in Canandaigua. Hunting down secret gems and favourite authors in used bookstores is one of my all-time passions. They have a gigantic wall of 1000's of romances. Check out my haul!
I also got to visit Seneca Falls and the Women's Rights National Park and the National Women's Hall of Fame. I was really sad to see how modest both museums were, in the case of the former, a lot of the interactive exhibits were actually broken. Still, it didn't deter from the awesomeness of the subject matter. The Hall of Fame had so many women who I love and admire already, and many who I learned about for the first time and was intrigued by. Both exhibits were really inspiring. I bought a "I Would Have Been a Suffragist" t-shirt in the gift shop.
I should have a review up soon of Nicola Cornick's latest book, which is excellent.
