Only 3 more sleeps and it will be Scene of the Crime day. Woo hoo!!! I’ve wanted to go to this writers’ festival for a few years now and something always managed to come up and thwart my plans. GAWD, I hate it when that happens. But this year, I got my registration fee in so I’ll be there with bells on! Well not bells, I prefer to think looking somewhat professional (?) but definitely enthusiastic.
Well I won’t be stepping into the 21st century today after all. Glitch in the shipping information has delayed the delivery of my BlackBerry by one day. Sniff… I was SO looking forward to playing with it tonight. At least the shipping information has been corrected so no harm no foul, even though the exception message was somewhat disconcerting. I was beside myself when I saw that. I called the shipping company and spoke to a very nice lady there who assured me that all is well and the message is the only one they have coded into their system for address errors – in my case it was the postal code.
I bought Stuart MacBride’s first and sixth novels (Cold Granite and Dark Blood) bundled together at Costco about a month ago. I’ve since purchased his second novel (Dying Light) and his other two currently out are on my wish list at amazon.ca. On the reading front, I’m well into Dying Light and enjoying every word of it.
I’ve ordered books from Amazon.co.uk on occasion and get recommendations from them on an ongoing basis. Well, this morning I received their current recommendations and if it wasn’t the full set of Stuart MacBride books and there’s a seventh one (hardcover) available for pre-order!
I wish there would have been someone at home when the e-mail came in to share the irony of it all with. I did forward the e-mail to my girlfriend with the same subject as this post. So far I’ve not heard back from her. Maybe she’s still rolling about on the floor in fits of laughter?
