Kristy, from Just Another Blogger!!
Thanks to everyone who entered the drawing. There was a much bigger turnout than I expected. Keep an eye out, I've got lots of books and nowhere to put them, so I'm sure there will be another contest in the near future.
And if you're looking for more freebies, you can always check out the monthly "Door Prize" book giveaway at Estella's Revenge. This month's book is The Lost Constitution, by William Martin, so go enter before time is up!
Just to report about everyday life, I have to say, I'm enjoying my last days of summer freedom. Tonight is adjunct faculty orientation at Far Away Community College, and I can't say that I'm looking forward to it. However, if I'm to look at the silver lining in this particular situation, it's a heck of a lot easier to find everything out in one night than trying to cull together all the bits of info that I wouldn't be getting otherwise. In the case of Really Close Community College I missed the orientation, and I'm culling as we speak.
I'm almost halfway through Haruki Murakami's Norwegian Wood, and I LOVE IT. Murakami's prose is so interesting! I don't know any other way to describe it than that. I know I'm probably the last person to jump on this respective book boat, but I'm glad I got some urging from a Shelfari group member to pick up some of his stuff. I'll save any in-depth thoughts for when I finish. And I'll certainly post some illustrative quotes to share the love.
Off to Really Close Community College to make some copies, turn in my syllabi, and pick up one of the books for the course.
