Waiting Patiently...

Like a child excited to tear open wrapped Christmas presents, I was so giddy to see this package arrive in the mail today! 

Our Spring vacation is getting closer and closer and I can't wait!  But I was slightly bummed because I didn't have a good book to entertain me during the trip.  My most favorite kind of vacation is to sit on the beach with a good book, bury my toes in the sand, and read for hours on end.  I looked through my bookcase and didn't see anything I hadn't read before.  I was hoping I had a book purchased from the bargain table that I was saving for a rainy day.  But no.

So I decided to visit the website of my favorite author, Maeve Binchy, to see when she was due to release a new project.  The website said there was a new book that was only available in a handful of countries; the US was not one.  Bummer.  But, the book was expected to hit the States in March of 2011!  Could it be possible????  YES!  A new Maeve Binchy book was out and I didn't even know it!  I immediately went to Amazon and made my purchase! 

Now the hard part is going to be not sneaking a peek at the novel before vacation begins!  Waiting (somewhat) patiently.....

I also love vacations when I can read! Where are you going?

I will have to look for that book. I can't remember if I have ever read anything by Maeve Binchy or not, but I always like the covers!

I've never read anything by Maeve Binchy, as I prefer non-fiction, but I googled Amazon and see that "Minding Frankie" gets great reader reviews. They say to have a box of Kleenex handy. Sounds like a wonderful vacation ahead!
