Kris is Off!

Thursday, June 28, 2012
Kris is leaving for the U.K. tomorrow, which means two things.

  1. I'll be reading, but mostly textbooks now. Study Abroad has a purpose other than exposing one to the cultural awesomeness of another country.
  2. I won't be posting as much. Kris still has a lot of books to catch up on reviewing, but they'll have to wait. Hopefully, she'll be able to post at least one a week. She'll be ecstatic to post two. It means she has enough willpower to tear herself away from her textbooks and British culture (most notably the hot British accent) long enough to post a review for your viewing pleasure. 
  3. I should have said three things. Everyone I've talked to (the bank, the store...) have asked me if I'm going to the Olympics. Kris might or might not go. Honestly (don't hate me!), this is my first time going to England, so I'm mostly interested in the culture (the whole reason I decided to go in the first place!). What can I say but that I'm a literature bug, species bookworm.

I do have a quite a few author interviews scheduled for July, so there should be posts at least once or twice a week. Hikari has said that she'll be back for a bit to review; hopefully, you'll be seeing some of her. I have someone back home to take pictures of bookish awesomeness that arrive in the mail, which means IMM won't disappear entirely. I won't be able to respond to comments as much or even comment on blogs I follow, though I'll be reading. This also means that email will be a better way to contact me than Twitter for the month of July.

If you have any advice on dress, bookish events, books I should take a look at that won't be published in the U.S. for a while, places to visit, and the like, please let me know! I'd appreciate it! I'll take photos of interesting things and post them when I have the time.

  1. I would highly recommend riding the London Eye and visiting Buckingham Palace. I mean, I know they're such touristy things to do, but they're so amazing!

    If you need help with your blog at any time, I would help out in any way possible! My e-mail is

    1. I'll be sure to check out those places during my free time. I haven't been to England before and am super excited for this trip.

      Thanks for the recommendations and for the offer of help. I'll contact you if I need it! :)

  2. I know I am such a nerd, but you have to go and visit Chaucer's Tomb in Westminster Abby. I just went and stood in front of it and stared.

    1. I'm a nerd too. I will add Chaucer's Tomb on my list of places to visit! ;) Hopefully, I can work it in somewhere. We'll be visiting some places as a group, but I don't have the schedule yet!

  3. I have never been. Just wanted to tell you I am excited for you and to have a great time!!!
