My book arrived!! I'm surprised it made it so quickly as there are things I'm waiting for that were ordered up to 2 months ago. Anyway, I'm super excited!
The book my swap partner Angie chose for me is Over the Edge of the World by Laurence Bergreen. It came with a note saying she read this book while hiking at the bottom of the Grand Canyon. I love that this book has an attachment for her. I have a lot of book-place associations. Many of my memories of certain places have to do with what I was reading there and many of my memories of certain books have to do with where I was when I was reading them.
Angie said she looked at my goodreads list for ideas. I'll admit, goodreads is something I started years ago and very quickly abandoned (unlike Angie who has hundreds of books listed in hers). But she said from that very meager list she deduced that I like non-fiction. Which is true. And this is a book I've never even heard of so that makes it more exciting. There's a very real chance that none of what I need to get done today will get done as it's a dreary day (shocking for here, I know) and I have a brand new book that I can't wait to start reading. Thanks so much, Angie!! And thanks again to Jessica for organizing the whole swap. I can't wait for the next one (did I say that already? Well, it's still true!).
