Delivery estimate October 8. Woohoo!!!


I have the same exact order waiting to be shipped! I'm finishing up The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society so I am hoping my delivery date will be the same as yours. Which book will you read first? I think I will read Devil's Brood first.

I've also just ordered EC's The Time of Singing from Book Depository. As a sidenote - it is my first order from BD and I had to get out fast after ordering TSOS before other good stuff caught my eye and I ordered even more. Such willpower, eh?

The books arrived today, a day early! Too bad I can't spend the whole evening reading...the presidential debate will prevent that.

I put in a purchase request at the library for that one, not sure when it's coming in. No hurry though, there's enough on my reading plate at the moment. Have to take a long weekend just so I can read Devils Brood (how bad is that?).

Picking up Devil's Brood and Partisan's Daughter tonight. We have our 'fall break', so plenty of time to read! (well, in between our fall clean up chores. Our yard looks terrible after the hot summer...)
