It's Here! Join my blog Hullabaloo

Two months ago, maybe more, I reserved a copy of Neil Gaiman's THE GRAVEYARD BOOK.

I was 122nd in line. Yes. You read that correctly. One hundred and twenty second for this freshly picked Newbery award winner.

I waited.

and waited.

and waited some more.

Then . . . last night I got THE e-mail. "Please come to the library your book is waiting."

I might have actually went "SQUEEEEE"

After I dropped off my preschooler I headed to the library this morning, marched to the RESERVED BOOKS section and there it was with my name on it. I went to the self check out counter, scanned my card, then the book. And that was it. It didn't seem right? Save for the beep of the scanner, there was no fanfare.

Shouldn't there have been music, a disco ball? Confetti?

2 months and 122nd in line (not to mention the pressure I feel to read this as fast as I can for the other poor souls who have been waiting) deserves some sort of hullabaloo. So this is it. this is my "It's Here!" blog party.

*\0/* yea!

I just got my e-mail from the library last week, so I can totally relate! I still haven't finished it (the fridge died, the dog got hives, I had a writer's retreat etc.) but I love it so far.

Those library waiting lists can definitely take awhile. You'll have to let us know what you think.

Whee! I am kind of jealous you are getting to read it for the first time.

I am halfway through it (no line at the middle school library :>)

It's delicious!

OMG, you guys have me soooo excited to read this book! I woke up this morning w/ a bad cold, and I was planning on going to bed after I put the kids to bed, but maybe I'll have to start the book instead. hmmmmmmm . . . . I'm so tired, but it's tempting!

I sell a boat-program which will help you to outwit auction and to win, initially the boat was created for the Scandinavian auction http://internet-aukcion.ru/ but now the program can work with similar auctions: gagen ru, vezetmne ru and with ten.
The program-boat stakes for you, i.e. for this purpose it is not necessary to sit constantly at the monitor. The boat can set time when it is necessary to stake, thus you as much as possible will lower expenses for rates, and as much as possible increase the chances of a victory.

The price of the program a boat for the Scandinavian auctions 20$

For the first 10 clients the price 15$

To all clients free updating and support.

Behind purchases I ask in icq: 588889590 Max.
