I had quite the treat last night when I got home from work; 2 packages sitting on the counter, both full of books!
The first package was my LibraryThing SantaThing book! It was Castle Waiting by Linda Medley and came from member rgherndon. It is a graphic novel set in a magical world, and from what all the book blurbs say on the back, it looks to by quite funny. I'm looking forward to starting that this weekend!
The other package was a complete surprise. Apparently, I had requested a book from Running Press via Shelf Awareness at some point (I have no idea which book it was!), so they sent me a sampling of their Spring 2009 YA titles. In that package, there was Cathy's Ring by Sean Stewart & Jordan Weisman (this is the third in a trilogy, so I hope I'm not too lost!), The Plague by Joanne Dahme, and Rainy Day Rescue and The Quarter Horse Foal, both by Inda Schaenen and the start of the Saddle Wise series. These last 2 I think I'll forward on to a friend after I've read them, as I think these books would be perfect for her.
It was quite a surprise to come home to such an abundance of free books last night! It's almost as if it's Christmas...
I simply want to read.
I'll more than likely occasionally post on here what I've been reading, and if there is something that really blows my mind, I'll probably have more to say about it and may write up a proper post, but for right now, things are going to be very quiet around here.
As always, happy reading!
2017 editI will continue to blog according to my health and ability, and connecting my posts thru Goodreads, so please be patient if things get quiet around here again this year. 2017 edit #2I am happy to report that my bone marrow transplant was a success and that I'm feeling more like myself everyday. That said, I'm going to try to start blogging a little more frequently, but please bare with me as I still continue to recover.
