Won

1. The Eternal Ones - Kirsten Miller. I won this book through the Penguin Group (Canada) Young Readers page on Facebook. Many thanks goes to Vimala for sending this book to me! 

Bought

None! Surprisingly, I am being really good with my self-imposed book buying ban. I told myself that I wasn't allowed to buy any books until the end of August. I have some books pre-ordered for then. So here's hoping I can stick to the ban! I have entirely way too much to read now as is, without adding more to the pile! 


I was hoping to post this last night, so I do apologize in advance for the flurry of activity you may see here later today on the blog. Duane and I took my mom, on what was supposed to be a short excursion, to buy a laptop. We felt like we were participating in The Amazing Race as we ended up having to go to 3 different stores to pick up different parts. Apparently, it was hard to find this specific laptop in stock, and when we did, we were sent to another store to pick up the free mouse that came with it. Overall it was a long drawn out process that ended with us finally making it home at 8:39pm. We started this endeavor at 4:30pm. Duane ended up setting up the computer for my mom as well, as the employees were stating that they would need to keep the computer for 24 hours. He is excellent with computers, so he saved my mom the trouble of having to go back and repeat this process with the company. 

Anyway, that's what I received in my mailbox, what did you get in yours?

Happy reading! :)
