Hosted by Miz B at Should Be Reading
This week’s muse:
Miz B has recently changed the format for this meme. Instead of a weekly question we can now just post our thoughts on anything pertaining to books and/or reading.
My thoughts this week: Surprise deliveries.
Be honest!! Do you wait and hope that you will receive a goodie via mail and/or UPS? I will fess up and say that I look forward to these deliveries. I’m so bad that when I hear the mail carrier close my mailbox, I am checking it immediately to see if there are any books. The heck with the bills, I want books.
And 2 weeks ago, I received such a treat. A book that I hadn’t expected but was so thrilled about receiving, that as soon as I got back to my desk, I was sending out emails to say thank you. You ask what had me grinning ear to ear? It was an ARC that Liz, from Media Muscle/The Book Trib sent, from an author that is on my “authors to read list”, Barbara Taylor Sissel, who is on my “favorite authors to read” list. I have been a fan for a few years now and knew that a new book was coming out but not sure when. I started it yesterday and was hooked. Matter of fact, since today is a holiday, I think I am taking the afternoon off, so I can read it. Barbara will be here in April as a guest author for Evidence of Life, and when you can read my review. Until then, I recommend you read one of her previous novels. You won’t be disappointed. I’m off to my reading chair…..have a great day!!
