I won! I won! and other stuff


I won a book! (Because CLEARLY I need more books!) Lisa over at Bluestalking Reader hosted a quick little book giveaway yesterday and I was lucky enough to be a winner. The book I won was End In Tears by Ruth Rendell. Rendell is a new author to me, so I am looking forward to the book. Thanks, Lisa!

I am currently reading A Thousand Splendid Suns, and wow, it's good. But... I'm at a point where Things Happen. I read a page at lunch yesterday and my hopes went from very hopeful to Oh no oh no oh no! in one page. I was unable to finish reading the scene and don't know how it turns out yet. Now I have to mentally build myself up to read it again.

I am also reading Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix in preparation of the movie next week (did I mention that I am taking half the day off to go see it?) As with ATSS, I have reached a point where Things Happen and even though I have already read it, I had to put the book down for a moment. Ok, I put the book down and went to bed. I'm sure you all have reading quirks too, fess up.

It's supposed to be 100 out all weekend. Hopefully that will lead to plenty of air-conditioned reading time!

I need a new site counter/tracker/stat-thingy. Any suggestions? I'd like to be able to see where people are coming from.

  2. Hi Lisa - I just sent you an email, but I hope you don't get discouraged. Its a hard story to read, but I think the end is rewarding.

    Hubby and I watched HP 4 last night in preparation and are re-reading HP 6 together (aloud!!) to get ready for HP 7. Its amazing how much of the details we've forgotten.

    Best wishes!

  3. Congrats on the book!

    As for stat counter, I use Stat Counter. It's free, easy to use, and I love it.
