Why a Free Book of course!
A few weeks ago I entered a contest on the Algonquin Books blog. I didn’t think too much more about it, until I received an e-mail telling me I had won. I had to wait about 2 weeks for my prize to come in the mail.
Saturday…in the mail…I find…
Heading Out to Wonderful by Robert Goolrick. It’s brand new and I thought it was pretty exciting to get a new book directly from the publisher. Kind of made me feel like a book reviewer or something! 😉
It’s even signed which makes it additionally cool! I’ve only barely started it so I don’t have much to report just yet, but so far I’m enjoying it. I’ll keep you posted!
I had mentioned that I was reading Cage of Stars by Jacquelyn Mitchard.
I really enjoyed this book. It seemed like a Young Adult book although it wasn’t listed as such. It followed the life of a 12-year-old girl through a terrible tragedy then on into adulthood. I liked the way it was written and it could easily work as a YA book. Even the tragic parts were handled carefully. It was well worth the time.
Regarding efforts to have a good week…Monday was tough…I don’t know why…I wanted to be nibbling all the time. I don’t know what it is with me right now. I did write everything down, which took quite a chunk out of my Weight Watchers Weekly Points Allowance. But…today is a new day and I will work to keep myself on track! That’s all I can do.
My stomach issues seem to be erupting again, I don’t know if that’s why I feel the constant urge to snack on something. I will get this under control. Just saying it is the first step to doing it. So I will do it. I’ll be back tomorrow with a better outlook. Promise!!
Happy Tuesday!! Stay On Track!!
