A happy reader! and a bit more KAL spoiler...
I was so thrilled when the mail lady came today - hurray my new book. I read and loved Michelle Wildgen's first book You're Not You and yapped about it here. When I learned she was local to me - transplanted from somewhere - but she lives in Madison now, I was pretty stoked - because well, I am going to have to go to a book signing right? I also recently learned that she knows a highschool classmate of mine personally - through Facebook you can discover many things - some you even want to know - well, I felt like I had rubbed elbows with celebrity - because I am like that. Brad Pitt could walk in, meh, I would probably not freak out because he is just a guy - an incredibly cute one who acts well - but just a guy (I would likely think, "gosh, I thought he'd be taller"). But if I have an opportunity to observe a writer (or a knitter!) in person, hear their words from their owns mouths - wow, that is exciting for me. (I am missing the author of The Story of Edgar Sawtelle tomorrow - darned Sunday school - haha!) I don't conjure personal opinion about the writer in my head - they are the conduit to worlds they share - and that's something. Okay, I sound a little star struck. So anyways, I was saying - Wildgen's new book came to me today - I pre-ordered ages ago through Amazon and have been laying in wait for the box to show up.
I cannot start it until I finish The Girls From Ames by Jeffrey Zaslow - because I cracked that one last night and realized, I need to know these women. I'll keep you posted.
Here is another update on my Mystery Sock - egads, that heel is divine. I love it. And it is so fallish, I cannot wait to buy a sweater to match - hee!
