Morning …er Afternoon Meanderings… Bookstores, and Authors – these are a few of my favorite things

Good 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 😀
