Summer Reading....

Any other readers out there?  I have been known to devour an entire book in one day, or less.  Sadly, that was before I became a mother and other aspects of life got in the way.

As a result, I'm taking the leap and selling off my book-collection.  You're probably envisioning rows of dusty books, similar to a used bookstore, and you couldn't be more wrong.  I've always taken very good care of my books, and in fact some are brand new!  There are a few that I bought used, and they show some wear, but all pages and fully intact and in great condition.

If you're in the market for some fun summer reading, I hope you'll go by and take a look.  I've got some listed as low as $1!!  If you purchase more than one, please let me know and I'll combine the shipping costs and refund you the difference.  Also, I don't have international shipping listed, but if you're overseas and are interested, leave me a message and we'll work something out.

 I've been adding to the list daily and it's already up to 90+ titles, so if you don't see something you want, please check back soon!

Thanks for looking!

Ten on Tuesday

I'm following along with one of my favorite bloggers, Erin Cobb with a Ten on Tuesday post.

1. I have a couple new giveaways in the works, so stay tuned in the next couple weeks!!

2. When I mentioned that we were going out of town for Mother's Day, why did no one remind me that I actually don't like traveling??  And, traveling with a 1 year old is less than ideal, for sure.

3. Just this morning I was thinking about how nice it will be to have a week empty of activities.  That's all it took for the lightning-bolt of Murphey's Law #7241 to strike.  Now my calendar is brimming with stuff

4. Why yes, I am sitting here with a glass of wine. one needs to know it's my third.  Yeah, it's been that kind of day/week/month.

5. My sister is getting MARRIED this summer.  My baby sister.  The one solely responsible for making sure all of my Barbies and dollies sported mullets and pixie cuts.  The one that started out as the bane of my existence and turned into my very best friend.  I am SO happy for her.  Well, I'd be a tad happier if I didn't have to be in the wedding.  Of course, I'm absolutely willing to do it, but anyone who knows me also knows that I'm a "stand in the back and watch" kind of person, as opposed to "stand in the very front, where every single person is staring" kind of person.  Lucky for me, she'll be a gorgeous bride so I won't really be noticed.  ;-)

6. I have been hoping and praying and pinching pennies until they squirmed and I finally saved up enough to take the photography class I've been secretly dreaming about.  Then, the hard part came - actually getting a spot in the class.  It's a popular place to be, but I found out when the registration opened and set my alarm to ring 5 minutes before, so I could be poised at the keyboard, ready to go when the site was open.  AND, I'm proud to announce - I AM IN!  Woohoo!

7. I'm going to start working this weekend on our yard.  I never realized how much harder it is to start from scratch, than to just pick up where the previous occupants left off.  I need flowers.  Need flowers.  But...I have these thumbs...they're mostly brown (rather than the green thumbs I probably need).  Wish me luck, I probably need it.

8. And I need to create some sort of dog run in the yard.  I LOVE our dogs, but I need to be able to give them and my daughter a separate space to play in so I don't have to hover quite so much. 

9. I have to drive 3 hours on Sunday, but I get to go dress shopping and have a fantastic lunch in the city with my sister.  Fun fun fun!

10. This crazy, geeky part of me wants to get an iPhone.  This may be a symptom of me losing my mind, as it would require me to change cell-companies and I live in an area where it might not even work.  Yet, I still want one.  Yep, crazy.  Hopefully, by the time my current contract is up, they will have done a SUPER-improvement in their coverage area.  Super.  Super-duper.
