It really is. I’m a bit overwhelmed!
First I found a book in the library that I had been wanting to read for a long time.
I didn’t go to the annual book fair (every June) because I don’t buy books anymore, remember? But my sons did. Two of the books they bought are books I would like to read.
Then I got a book as a gift. It was the biography of Steve Jobs, translated into Hebrew. I don’t read translated versions if I can read the language of the original. In addition, the library carries the book in English. So I exchanged it for TWO BOOKS (it was a hardcover).
NEXT (taking a deep breath) I got a ONE YEAR SUBSCRIPTION TO AUDBILE! Wow! That’s TWELVE audio books! I’ve begun listening to “Gone Girl” by Gillian Flynn. Two readers!
Finally, I got another book as a gift from a friend. I love her choice except for the fact that I actually own it. Its ” the hundred year old man who climbed out of the window and disappeared” by Jonas Jonasson, which I really enjoyed. So I took it back to the store. But since I’m now feeling rather overwhelmed, I could not find anything to exchange it to. I took one of those documents that show how much credit I have at the store. What are they called in English?
So, do you see what I mean? It IS raining books!

Awesome – I have never gotten an audiobok before, amyabe I should try that out. I am still reading Khaled Hosseini’s “And The Mountains Echoed” which is an amaizng book – so maybe you can go get that one, instead of the one you already have? : )
Enjoy reading! I can’t wait for summer holidays in two weeks – I will also buy Greek books because my Greek is flagging, and English books too – lots, lots!
I knew you would dance with me, Vicky!
I DID remember you reccomended that book. It will be my next audio book! The book store had it, but only in hardcover and cost more than 40 dollars! I was so pleased to see it offered as part of my subscription.
To be honest, it is not so practical because it is a hardcover – his previous two books were paperbacks and easy to carry around and read. I really hope you like it!
