Sitting here this morning – EARLY, with a head cold/annoying sinus thing/ cough and sore throat I was not sure I was going to post this morning. I had two big projects to keep me busy for a while, the chairs that I posted about yesterday and a small foyer to paint which I completed yesterday morning. SO much for that. Now looking into finding materials to put in a raised garden for strawberries and rhubarb…
What actually made me want to post today (other than the fact that connecting with all of you is like sitting at my table having coffee with friends) is book anticipation. If you love books… you know this feeling. It is the feeling you have when a book you have either LONG waited for or a book that you discovered that will be coming out and you cannot wait to dig into it. For me today… it is the later.
In 2011 I had the pleasure of discovering Ready Player One by Ernest Cline on audio narrated by Wil Wheaton. I loved this one sooooo much that I listened to it again in 2014 AND reviewed it again. To this day it is one of the best audio books I have ever listened to. I loved the 80’s references, the dystopian gamer theme, and this audio made a big fan of Wil Wheaton’s narration to the point I searched out audio books that he narrated and listened to them.
Recently I discovered that Ernest Cline is coming out with a new book, Armada, also centered around a game. I quickly looked it up in audio version and was THRILLED to see that this will once again be narrated by the amazing Wil Wheaton. Book release date is July 14th and I am soooooo ready for this one.
Tonight friends are coming over to grill with us. We will be planting a Crimson Maple tree in the back yard that they had purchased in memory of Justin and we will be setting a memorial bench out tonight as well. Promises to be a bitter sweet evening. ♥ Always
