I somehow forgot it was Sunday. Sunday is my Saturday and so the weekend is just beginning for me and always throws me off. That said, I've been waiting for today because I have some fabulous things that I've received lately!
The package I've been anticipating from Simon Audio came on Wednesday!
I was ridiculously excited when I saw this, as I'm a pretty fierce environmentalist:
Our Choice, Al Gore
It's signed by the Vice President! The little scratching on the G was from my nail, trying to see if it were printed on or not. It's not. I'll listen to this one next.
This is what I'm currently listening to:
127 Hours: Between a Rock and a Hard Place, Aron Ralston
I've wanted to see this film and read the book since I first heard about it but the timing never worked out. And although I saw this book on at the library so many times I could never check it out as this story is too visceral to know in words. The fact that it's read by the author makes it all the more better. My library has its own theatre for films and will be showing this at the end of the month. On the 27th, I believe, probably not by coincidence. Hopefully I can listen to it all by then. (I'm listening to it now and it's really interesting.)
Thank you so much to Simon & Schuster for these and many more. I'm so thrilled and am really enjoying them.
But wait! I received something else on Wednesday:
The Kingdom of Childhood, Rebecca Coleman
I won a copy of this during Armchair Bea and it just arrived from Harlequin! The cover is gorgeous and matte. I'm looking forward to reading this one as it handles some pretty tough issues, but it will be a nice chance of pace. Goodreads says that it comes out in September, but the book says October.
There's something else that I'll be receiving that I'll leave off until it arrives. Because that'll get a post all of its own.
A belated Happy Canada Day to all of my northern friends and Happy Fourth of July to all of my fellow Americans! I hope you guys have a great holiday. My birthday is coming up this week (Friday!) and so I won't be around for the weekend. I'll try and get some fun things in before then. I can't wait to see what you've all are up to!
