I was getting ready for bed last night when I get an email notification from WordPress. I click it open, thinking it must be a comment or a reply, but to my immense joy (and shock, mind you) it was an email telling me this post got Freshly Pressed! I couldn’t believe it actually, and I had to read the email twice for the message to register.
Then I squealed so loudly I nearly woke everyone up.The sleepiness was completely gone, and I admit it took me some to be able to sleep after all the excitement, haha. Sadly I didn’t have any Twix to celebrate with, but I commemorated the event with a yummy chocolate cake!
Thank you for featuring the post, WP! And thanks to everyone who commented and liked the post; you’ve made one chocoholic quite happy!
While I’m at being grateful, I would like to thank Andrea Kelley for nominating me for The Booker Award! According to the rules of this award, you have to name five books you would take out of your house if it were to catch fire. That’s a toughie, isn’t it?
After some consideration, I thought that I would most probably save some books I have yet to read, because none of my copies have a sentimental value. I mean, sure I love my books and would try to save them all were it possible, but I think I’d want to save some books that would keep me occupied until I build my collection all over again.
The books I would pick up (from my current to-read pile) are:
1. American Gods by Neil Gaiman.
2. 11/22/63 by Stephen King.
3. Little Women by Louisa May Alcott (even though I’ve read this, I have a brand new gorgeous Penguin Threads edition that I would not part with at all).
4. The City of Dreaming Books by Walter Moers.
5. I’ve Got Your Number by Sophie Kinsella.
What books would you save while making a mad dash for the exit?
