First off, today, July 27th, marks the date on which the average high temperature begins to drop from its high point of 84 F/28.9 C and start heading in the right direction for the rest of the year. Yeehaw!
Secondly, I just finished my 75th fiction reread for the year. I had to do something 'special' for book 75, so I chose The Hobbit--probably the book I've reread more than any in my life, seeing as I lost count around 10 rereads at the age of 11. I'll never be too old to enjoy it, it's the first book that ever brought me to tears as a child, and I love how I see it in different ways as the years go by.
And now for...Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows!
*echoes the Yeehaw!* Yeehaw! Lets hope the downward plummet is steady and fast! ...though I would like temperate temps of autumn to linger. I prefer it over winter, but it never lasts long enough.
My library is getting ready to add Deathly Hallows to our collection. A couple of the librarians were deciding between a few different sources to buy it from, comparing prices, etc. I just looked at them and said, "You can go down to Kroger and pick it up for about twenty bucks." So they decided to go the cheaper route. ^_^ (It was nearly $40 on the sites they were looking at, not including s/h and the long delay in shipment.)
Enjoy the read!
Not fast for me--90's again less week, though not as humid, thankfully. But it will come eventually!
It would be wonderful if spring and autumn were long, and summer and winter short. Seems like those all-too-rare perfect autumn days always come when I'm stuck at work. =P
It's funny how 'beaucracy' can lead to such things. At least they had the flexiblity to buy locally!
Thanks! Did half last night, and the other half is for this morning. =)
I'd be happy to send over a shipment of sunshine and low humidity, since we have it in spades coming up. (But no 'eminent coolness'--back to 90 next week). Hopefully that rain stops soon! (I was looking over drought maps and realized it was worse in Minnesota than I'd guessed, though my little corner of my county is moderate drought rather than severe drought. Poor farmers!)
And I plan to finish HP7 by about noon, so if my eyeballs haven't divorced me by then, I might get to your latest short tonight or Sunday. =)
