The time to read is any time: no apparatus, no appointment of time and place, is necessary. It is the only art which can be practised at any hour of the day or night, whenever the time and inclination comes, that is your time for reading; in joy or sorrow, health or illness. ~ Holbrook Jackson

Swiped from Judy (I seem to be doing that a lot) who got it from Karen (who is also holding a contest to give someone the book of their choice... go now and enter):

Yes, folks! It's BUY A FRIEND A BOOK WEEK!

This is really cool -- I have a friend that I wanted to buy a book for at Christmas, but by the time I got around to shopping for it, and then found that it wasn't stocked at ANY bookstore in town, it was too late to order it in time to be mailed to her. Grrr...

Now, I can order it and just have it shipped directly to her, because it doesn't need to be wrapped, right? Woo!

I'm available to anyone who can't think of a friend to buy a book for, BTW :-)

I'm in the market for Colleen Gleason's new book, The Rest Falls Away: The Gardella Vampire Chronicles which was released yesterday, if you need any suggestions.

Even if you don't choose me, choose someone. And feel free to support a new author, too! There are certainly plenty of them out there.

Go forth and shop!

I think it's great that you "swipe" from me... esp. as I swiped the idea of blogging from you! Yes, the truth can now be told. It's all Marianne's fault that I'm blogging.... if there's any rotten fruit and vegetables to be thrown, head them in the direction of New Hampshire... not Georgia!! ;-)

Excellent idea! I know someone who really deserves it, too. (rubs palms together, chortles evilly!) I can't wait make delivery later this week.
