Superstitious reading . . .

. . . and one late arrival to the B'day book haul*. Yay!

So, onto superstitious reading . . .

The other day hubby and I were talking about superstitions and he admitted he had one. Not only was this was amazing (I was pretty much under the impression he didn't do superstitions, since that's what he told me when we first met - admittedly a loooooooog time ago - so this was a strange Huh, what? moment for me *g*) but his superstition is a really odd one I've never heard of before.

Here it is!

Whatever book he's reading, when he hits chapter thirteen, he *has* to read it all the way through without stopping**. So he won't start reading unless he knows he's got time to finish!

Weird, huh?

Or maybe it's just me that thinks that?

So, anyone else out there got the same superstition***, or any others to do with reading?

*I haven't read any of Meljean Brook's books before, just a short story which I loved. So I was thrilled when this one turned up in the B'day book haul, although I'm not sure how I managed to add book 3 to my wishlist instead of book 1. Hmm. I quite like reading series in order, so I might have to leave this one further down the TBR pile until I get hold of books 1 & 2.

**What's even weirder, is that we met on the 13th Feb, so thirteen is sort of our lucky number. Go figure :-)

***Of course, if you do, I in no way mean to imply you're weird, just my hubby, and he knows I love him, so he'll forgive me. Probably *g*

Birthday Book Haul!

Sunday was my birthday (many thanks to everyone who sent me Birthday Wishes!). I had a lovely quiet day: a trip to the garden centre to buy some plants (B'day vouchers to spend! Yay!), visits with family and friends, and writing :-) And lucky girl that I am, I had these!

Yay! My family are the best! (they know how to find my Amazon wish list *g*) So big hugs and thanks to them (and the authors) for many future hours of happy reading.

My wonderful hubby gave me lovely flowers, yummy cup cakes (help yourself :-)), my fav chocs, and a very beautiful ring.*

And finally sorry for being absent, and leaving you all with nothing but tomato pic spam, but the writing/edits/re-writes on The Bitter Seed of Magic are eating my brain cells/time like this little guy below eats roads, and I haven't a lot left for much else**. Even my B'day books will have to wait a while.

*Yep, I know, I should've taken a picture of it in RL . . .

**which is a good thing, cos that way the book gets the best of me, and that makes it even better, so it's a win, win situation :-) )

And don't forget you can enter for a chance to win my books, or if you've already got them, you can win one of my fav, autobuy authors' books. Check out my website here!
