Natürlich lesen Ponys gerne, wenn Frauchen Bibliothekarin ist. *g*
Of course, ponys love to read, if their owner is a librarian. *g*
Nächsten Mai erscheint (voraussichtlich) Buch 5: Mirror Sight. Ich freu mich jetzt schon!
Yay, Green Rider continues! Next May book five will be published, it is called Mirror Sight. Soooo looking forward!
Da guckt man ganz unschuldig auf Amazon nach dem Kindle-Angebot an Ebooks und fragt sich ob man nun einen Kindle umgehend haben muss oder doch lieber noch etwas abwartet (das einer hermuss ist aber schon klar. *g*) und dann stolpert man über ein Buch, das natürlich auf jeden Fall in Papierform her muss:
Don Simon. In Peking. Magistrates of Hell Das muss ich jetzt gerade gleichmnal gaaaaaaaaanz dringend bestellen. *freu, freu, freu*
Das Titelbild gefällt mir allerdings überhaupt nicht.
So you are surfing Amazon most innocently, checking out the offers for Kindle-Ebooks, trying to decide if I want the thing immediately or if I can wait a bit longer (there is no denying that I sooner or later will have one *g*) and then you come across a book that you totally need to have in its paper-version:
Don Simon. In Bejing. (=teh drool? *g*) Magistrates of Hell This is not to be resisted, I am off to order it. *bounces around happily*
I totally dislike the cover, though.
Immer mal wieder eine interessante Frage. Ich lese im Moment das hier:
Kein Wunder, dass ich immer eine sehr lustige Mischung an Buchempfehlungen kriege. *g* Das Qi Gong Buch ist allerdings alt, das hab ich schon lange, aber nun verstehe ich endlich ansatzweise, worüber geschrieben wird. *g*
What do you read currently? That’s a question that is often asked and right now the answer shows excellently how widespread my interests in reading are. *g*
No surprise that I always get very funny recommendations from shops, LOL!!
The Qi Gong book I have for a long time, though, but it is only now that I finally begin to understand what it is about. *g*
The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore
The most awesome and touching animation film that I have seen in a while
“Wheeeeeeee” kinda sums it up!
First surprise in the morning- my head librarian offers me to try out her highend office chair. (In the recent boss-employee talk, I had told her that I get an achy back from my current chair) So I sit and within half an hour all “ouchies” are gone. I bring the chair back and and praise it muchly and she says, well, then she will go see what she can find for me. Goodness, I am getting not only a new office chair but also possibly a great one.
On it goes. When checking my emails around midday, I find an announcement by Amazon, that finally the fourth volume of the Green Rider series by Kirsten Britain is going to be published very soon.
Of course I had to pre-order it ASAP! Looks as if I will spend my holiday practising (see below) and reading…
And then, also at midday, I had sent mail to my Tai Chi teacher from some years back, to inquire about a new beginner course starting in March.
Not only does she welcome me back most happily after years of absence, no, I am also invited to skip the beginners and go to an “intermediate” course instead. And that means that I could theoretically start just today- as is, I am starting next Thursday.
I am so happy I could explode, LOL!! I should have done this years earlier!
Now this means some hard work for the next days, though, LOL!! A lot of stretching exercise will have to be done in order for me to survive next Thursday evening. *snickers at self*
After having read that it goes out of print. I can not *not* have it! *g*
“A smiling librarian is an awesome sight; it challenges the stereotypes, creates an atmosphere of change, and frightens the heck out of 95% of the borrowers.“(1)
(Oh, and that website is probably soon gone, she has a blog now. So better save your favourite quotes now)
