lots of good stuff

Seems that I've run into a little good luck lately (nice change!)...and it's about time!

I recently won "A Train in Winter" from --a WWII book...right up my alley, my absolute favorite era to read.

Just about a week before that I won 25 Christmas cards from Shutterfly from my friend, Lindsay's blog...and that saved me a good chunk of change. Woot!

I have entered quite a few blog "contests/giveaways" lately and actually won one of those as well...from Bella Blvd...I won the "Winter Wonderland" paper pack. Cute!!

And lastly, but having nothing to do with luck, in today's mail I received a letter from my employer stating that in January we will once again be exempt from paying our insurance premium. Wahoo!! It will be nice to have a little bit "extra" post-Christmas. 

It's all I can do to NOT go play the lottery!!

www Wednesday

To play along, just answer the following three (3) questions…

• What are you currently reading?

• What did you recently finish reading?
• What do you think you’ll read next?

And we go:

Currently reading:  "Before Ever After" by Samantha Sotto...I am really enjoying this book so far and just need more time to sit down and devote to reading. My reading time has been lagging lately. Sad.

Just finished reading: "Next to Love" by Ellen Feldman was the last book I finished...yes, I was reading "The Last Letter from your Lover" but did not realize i had reached my 21 day window (e-book) from the library and when I went to read it the other day I received a message on my Nook saying my rental period had expired. Sad. So I'm back on the waiting list for it and hopefully it comes through soon so I can finish it....and not forget all that I've read.
What I'll read next: "The Night Circus" by Erin Morgenstern!!! I'm SOOOO excited to read this one too!! It's waiting for me right now at the library (e-book) so as soon as I can finish my current book, I'll be diving into this one!! Sure hope it lives up to the hype it's been getting.

Side Note: My favorite book this year so far remains "The Soldier's Wife" by Margaret Leroy!! Check it out if you enjoy WWII historical fiction.
