Lots of things to be happy about this week, so I'm just going to make a list:

-I read book 1 in the Dresden Files by Jim Butcher.  Why did I wait so long to read these books?  I'm about halfway through book 2, and I already have book 3 ready to go!

-I sent off book 2 to my agent, along with the synopsis and sample chapters for book 3.  Cross your fingers for me!

-I had a lovely lunch with some fellow RWA chapter members.  Good food and good company make for a nice time!

-It's the weekend!

What are you celebrating this week?

    1. Thanks, Deb! I'm glad I found the series so late, because now I can glom all of the books available, which will hopefully keep me occupied during the wait for the next one! :)

  2. Congrats on sending the book to your agent. Can't you just kick yourself when you find that you should have read a book forever ago?

  3. Congrats on being so productive in your reading! I am so woefully behind on my reading list it's just despicable!

    And an extra large helping of congrats for sending your book off to your publisher- that's fantastic!

    And yay for lunch. I can't remember the last time I had a nice lunch with friends- sounds lovely.

    1. Thanks, Bev! I'm still waaaay behind on my reading too, but that's okay. I use books as part of my decorating scheme (at least, that's my story, and I'm sticking to it!), so I don't mind having such a huge TBR pile. Hope you get to have lunch with your friends soon!

    1. I was sorry to miss it--I was in the ER with friend on Tuesday and Wednesday, so blogging kind of took a back seat...
