Famous Las Vegas sign

I am writing this post from the most gorgeous hotel room I’ve ever seen.  I’m staying at the Palazzo, which is the newest and tallest hotel and casino on the Strip.  I’m on the 41st floor, and from my suite I have the most spectacular view of Las Vegas and the mountains in the distance.  When I walked into my room Sunday night and saw the view, it made me forget about the extremely long day and the cramped flight out.  It is simply that amazing.

I finished reading Down to a Sunless Sea before I left.  I started the review, but I wasn’t terribly inspired.  I’ll try to post that tonight.  On the plane I started Songs of the Missing and I finished that before I went to sleep Sunday night/Monday morning (my body time).  I really enjoyed it and it was a good companion in my  attempt to acclimate to Las Vegas time.  Missing is the current First Look Book Club selection.  After I’m done participating there, I’ll post my review here.

Yesterday was a jet lag day.  I attended a  full day tutorial at the conference I’m attending and once Aleve took care of my headache, I was bored and exhausted.  I’m sorry that I didn’t post anything or read anyone else’s blog like I intended.  After a good night sleep last night, I am experiencing major withdrawals!

Today is going to be an exciting day.  I am meeting Lander Marks, the author of Artist’s Proof, for lunch!  I’ve never met an author before, and I’m really looking forward to it.  My only regret is that I don’t have a camera with me.  I’d really like to have a picture to post.  I’ll have to see if they have a disposable one for sale.  I remember seeing a CVS not too far from here.  I can do 1 hour processing and have the pictures put on a CD.  Hopefully that will work out.

I look forward to catching up with everyone later today!

  1. That is so awesome! I can’t wait to hear about the lunch.

  2. I’m looking forward to your review of “Songs”. I’ve posted mine but I haven’t seen too many yet!

  3. I need to post my review for “Songs” too. Probably Friday. I need to get farther ahead on my reading, or I won’t have much to post while I’m gone!

  4. This conference has really whipped me but good. I haven’t had nearly the time or energy for posting as I thought I would. I really had a wonderful lunch with Lander Marks, though! I have a picture, but it cost me $15 to buy the disposable camera. After spending that much for the camera, I decided I would wait until I got home to process the pictures. I’ll blog about that once they get back.

    I have been reading and finished Mrs. Lieutenant, though. It didn’t do a whole lot for me. I’ll be reading Matrimony on the plane, but when am I ever going to catch up on my reviews? I might just use my laptop and write them on the plane and post them when I get home.
