Jahaha!! ^==^;;;

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.

Yessss!! Wheeee!!
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.

Was liest Du gerade?

Was liest Du gerade?

Immer mal wieder eine interessante Frage. Ich lese im Moment das hier:
Drei Bücher liegen auf dem Boden: A Clash of Kings, PHP für WordPress und Das Stille Qi Gong
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*

>Oh boy, what a day!

>Oh boy, what a day!

“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.
Blackveil
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)
