in the mail

I finally received my books in the mail! I've been waiting and waiting and waiting ever since I received the email saying that they were on their way. Checking the Tracking packages every day from the bookstore website! Three books, #4 Kris Longknife: Resolute by Mike Shepherd; #1 Hell's Gate by David Weber and Linda Evans; and #1 Terrier by Tamora Pierce, in two packages. So imagine my surprise when I open the door and find three packages - two single book packages and 1 multi-book box. Four books? The only other book I have on order right now is from Aug 2005, which is completely other long story!
So what did I get? I open the box first and there's the Weber/Evans and Shepherd books. Yes, that's right. The first package contained the Pierce book. Yes, that's good but lets keep the surprise of the unknown book 'tl last why don't you? The last package contained...another copy of the Pierce book!
The Pierce and Shepherd books are the two I've been waiting so desperately to get my hands on and now that they're here I've got 2 inter-library loan books out with a third on its way and they can't be renewed! (or renewed with difficulty, I'm not actually sure which) so I Have to read those first. Did I mention the inter-library loans are books 3, 6, and 9 in the series so I have to read 9 books before I can get to the new ones? :) Talk about an incentive to read - guess what I'm doing on my two days off? LOL
Baking cookies.
Oh yeah, that too.

You don't want to wait until book two comes out so that you can read them together? That way you won't be left in suspense waiting and waiting for the second book! :)
Me either, it's the g8ways book of the month for November!

STOP IT!!!
Stop teasing me! Stop it!
Aaaaaaaaaaaaaah...
By the way, the read-all-at-once thing doesn't work for me. I forget books I don't read. I don't have much patience :P

Yeah, I put them on the shelf and forget about them until the next book comes out. I did that with her Trickster books and with Maggie Furey's Shadowleague trilogy; then read the series on a weekend!
Don't go to medical school to become a doctor. You'd be wanting lots of patients. :) (yeah, it's an old joke of mine because I don't have much patience either!)

Sorry, but I must speak my mind. That was a [i]lame[/i] joke. Almost as bad as my joke. I must subject you to it:
"The bottom quark said, 'I'm so down'."
I always roar with laughter when I tell that one, but no one gets it. Or, they get it and think I'm insane.

You didn't use the <> around the "i" but then I used a "b" then an "/i" which screwed up my sequel to your lame (your words) joke! LOL

Probably depends if they know anything about Quark's, besides his bar on Deep Space Nine. *grin*
