Morning …er Afternoon Meanderings… Bookstores, and Authors – these are a few of my favorite things
morning errrr… afternoon!
I have had a pretty nice end to my week. I had a day off on Friday (woo hoo – seriously woo hoo!!!) a nice package arrived, and a successful road trip yesterday.
Last week I read and reviewed Jerusalem Maiden by Talia Carner. I had met Talia in New York this year and enjoyed talking with her. When I wrote my review I mentioned that I was interested in hearing that Talia had written two other books that I would like to read some day. Soon after, Talia contacted me saying she would be delighted to send me the other two books. (*someone pinch me – these book happenings often feel like a dream!*) Of course I said I would love that. 😀
On Friday, Talia’s package arrived:
And then yesterday I went to my closest Barnes and Noble in St Cloud, Minnesota to see the NOOK representatives and they were SO NICE! The lady (I wish I would have caught her name) was so kind to me! I know very little about the powers of my NOOK and she walked me through some of the magic of the NOOK and upgraded my NOOK and hooked me up with a free book. I left feeling very satisfied with the help I was given.
Did I leave empty-handed?
Of course not…. that has never happened. 😛
There it is…. a great weekend that really makes me appreciate the book relations in my life 😀
