So mom surprised me yesterday (to late to write about it last night) when she showed up from her St. Louis trip that she took with a friend-she had bought two books for me: I Shall Wear Midnight by Terry Pratchett (we still remember you, Sir Terry!) and a Doctor Who novel (my first ever!) called Harvest of Time by Alastair Reynolds.
I look forward to reading both.
Plus both of them were on my list. Granted, the “I Shall Wear Midnight” is number four in a series and I don’t have the first three, but it’s the thought that counts. It’s always nice to be surprised with practically new books.
