This was a big year not only for books, but for book-related trips! Here are the highlights.

Sandra & David at Hogwarts in Orlando

My older son David and I went to Universal Studios in Florida to spend a couple days in Harry Potter World. It was awesome and I hope we can go again when he’s a little older.

My Bible study group takes a trip each summer and since this was my last summer with them, we decided to go big. We went to New York City! My favorite part of the weekend was visiting Strand book store. I now have a list of books stores I want to visit around the country.
