It's not an era I normally read about, but my AF (who is quite a reader of many genres) really loved it so I'm looking forward to giving it a whirl.

Sorry, Amazon Friend. Amazon US let's you have Friends and Interesting People. They show up on your profile page and you can click and see what they've been reading lately. I've come across a few interesting reads that way.

I did get the wettest county. I'm normally not that type of chick but I love gangsters and outlaws so I thought I'd give it a go. I'm still wiating on my first amazon shipment?? It still hasnt come yet. This has to be the slowest one ever.

There were a few cookbooks that I really wanted...but they were all gone. :(

Mine came quite quickly, but then if they do ship out of Seattle (which is where Amzn is located) it doesn't take UPS too long to find me. Which BTW, it is so wasteful the way they ship this stuff. My usual orders are typically packed in one box and always the smallest box that will fit. These come individually (arriving on the same day) and in a box much too big for one book. What a waste.

I got Susanne Dunlap's The Musician's Daughter off Vine today. I was halfway hoping for the hair dryer, but the electronics are long gone by the time I get the e-mails.

In the UK the Amazon Vine newsletter always comes through just as I'm sitting down to evening work - around 8pm. So I'm generally able to grab an electronic bargain. Best one has been the hair straighteners that retail for £90.00 - about $180.00 Between that and a book and having hair like mine, no contest!!! I've had some straighteners that double as curlers this time around. Straightener is good. Trying to curl gives you 3rd degree finger burns. I've also ordered a couple of books on the second batch, but can't remember what...

I had such high hopes, there was a glitch and the newsletter appeared about one hour early (although still dated 11/20) with come cool electronics, including noise reducing headphones. I clicked and I was denied at being over my limit. When it came back on at the regular time all the cool stuff was gone. I got a diet/exercise book and some diet drink. I'm not taking any more books unless I really think they're going to interest me.

I got the high end canned cat food last week. It just showed up yesterday. I'm planning a video review :)
