My new bookshelves came!!

Now, to put them together, move the old ones over, and rearrange everything. Not easy with the quadrillions of books I need to move. But I'm excited, I always find old treasures when I'm rearranging and resorting my books.

Now, everyone knows what I'll be doing this weekend.

Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favorite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

This morning when she was dropping off the grandkid, my pregnant daughter-in-law announced that she was not returning to work after the birth. So starting April (when maternity leave begins) I will no longer be daycare for my (admittedly darling, but very active) two year-old granddaughter, and I will get my life back!

Hallelujah!! *Does happy dance*

And any time I want a Hailey fix, she's right across town. The best of both worlds.

Never had a surprise party before and boy was I surprised! Those sneaky people. :)

That sounds just lovely! It's nice that you were able to be surprised a couple of days after the actual day.


It was my birthday yesterday & I got an e-reader from SLOC, which I completely wasn't expecting! It's got 100 free classics on it already (it's a Kobo), so I'm going to read some classics that I've always meant to but never got around to doing.
