So, I'm alive. All is well in my neck of the woods. Hurricane Noel was not the worst storm I have lived through, but it did have some annoying effects on my province! Last night the internet died, and then it came back on, and then we got a crazy thunderstorm, and then the power went out for about 8 hours. Last night was not a very successful reading evening. I was just coming to the close of Three Days Road when the power went out, so I had to wait until today to finish it. I am hoping that the rest of the month will be a bit more organized!
Last night during the crazy thunderstorm, I put together bookshelves. That's right, I splurged and bought two more to add to my collection. Well, I paid for one, the other one is an early Christmas present from my mother. I have started organizing them tonight. When I am happy with the set up I will post pictures. I honestly have no idea how I am going to move out of my house at this point. I will need an extra bedroom just for my books! It is going to be interesting! The bookshelves were a bit of an impulse buy yesterday. I knew I needed them, but it wasn't until we were at the store and my mother was asking me what I wanted for Christmas that I found myself in the aisle. I am happy with them, though. I will be even better when I get all my books organized.
I know I promised some reviews, but something always seems to come up and take up most of my time! Hopefully tomorrow I will find the time to post one. In the meantime, I won a book from Chris of Stuff as Dreams are Made on. That was awesome to get! I turned my computer on for the first time since the power came on and had that happy email waiting for me! I was already doing a happy dance that my computer turned on! It did not sound good when it shut down last night. I turned it off for the thunder, but after it passed I turned it back on for a bit, and that is when the power decided to go out! Not good, not good at all!
Anyways, this is the book that I won. I have heard of it before and looked at it at the store. I am afraid that I think a lot of my attraction to it is the cover! We will see what I think of it when I read it, though.
