Books (and laptop) for Yosemite


Don't you love to get a package in the mail? It's especially fun when you don't even remember what you ordered. (This happens more often than I'd like to admit!)

On Saturday I got a box and the return label gave no clues. I opened it up and found three writing books! I'd ordered them from Writer's Digest when they had a sale.

It's Spring Break for my kids and we're headed up to Yosemite early Monday morning so I'm thrilled to have some great reading to take along. And should inspiration hit: have laptop, will travel. Yes, I know it's sick. I'm going to enjoy the great outdoors with my computer in tow.

Tell me I'm not the only one...

I was excited when I got the bracelet in the mail a few days ago! Enjoy your time with family, books and laptop! I didn't bring my laptop last week, but ended up using my mother in laws, but just checked up on FAcebook. I'm a FB addict. :)

Um, nope, I'm the same way!!! Enjoy your reading. :D

You're not the only one. I don't go anywhere without my laptop.

And as for surprise packages, the last one was from YOU! YAY!

Vivian said...

Have a fantastic vacation! (and yes, I always bring my laptop)

Katie said...

Look at all those great books! What is writer Mama? I'm gonna look it up right now.

Love the Maas book.

If you get a chance, check out Jeffrey Sweet's Solving Your Script. Massive insights there for prose writers, even if it is a book designed for new playwrights.
