...from Barnes & Noble shipping to my door! I placed my order on the 8th or 9th. You may recall that A wanted The Notebook, and she couldn't find it locally -- at the time. Since there was free shipping on orders over $25, I found a couple of books to order for myself. On the 10th, it was in York, PA; on the 12th, St. Paul, MN; on the 16th, finally shipped from St. Paul -- via Jacksonville, FL; back to St. Paul again by the 26th; and finally delivered to my door yesterday, the 27th. Well-traveled, huh? A day from St. Paul to my door? Seems to me we could have skipped the trip to Florida and I'd have had my books on the 13th.
Meanwhile, M found a copy of The Notebook and read it; A took it up afterwards and finished days and days ago, and now we have an extra, unneeded copy...
Guess what I got?! I already stuck 'em over in my sidebar... Best of Knitter's: Arans & Celtics and Patterns for Guernseys, Jerseys & Arans by Gladys Thompson. I drooled all over Arans & Celtics last night, as I'm still without actual knitting. I even held a skein of the superwash on my lap and considered casting on -- for what, I don't know! I managed to exercise restraint and am looking forward to a future project -- the tough part will be choosing, I love almost all of them!
My knitting will come home tonight!
