Gosh!  The mail was good yesterday!   Not only did the Christmas presents from amazon (my son & Kat) come, but also the book I won over at Thursday Thoughts !  Over there I won my choice of a book from  (where else?!) Amazon, and so I chose a book I’ve wanted to try but was just as afraid to send for it as read it:  Charles Dickens, The Old Curiosity Shop.   In my sons gifts I had ordered David Copperfied.  I’ve not read any Dickens so this is going to be interesting!  I hope I like them both!!

Both the Lawhead book and the Christopher Plummer book were larger than I thought they’d be!  I’d be inclined to call them chunksters!.. in fact.. everyone of these books are chunksters! (they will take long to read!)

The Old Curiosity Shop is a hardback and it comes with a “built in” book mark. (a thin piece of material attached to the book)  I have to say, the book feels great in my hands, I hope that’s a good sign!

And then.. came the dvds!   Even the box they came in was nice!  Then began to open them..  First inside were some astronaut photos.. and then the beautiful dvds!

Maybe I’ll begin to watch them this weekend.. or maybe not ..  maybe I’ll just look at them for a while! :o)  but I doubt I’ll be able to wait for very long!!  For anyone interested in this HBO mini series they are still on sale at amazon for only 19.99. (that’s 12 hours of dvds!… but of course, it helps if you like to learn about the “original” astronauts and their trials and tribulations and actually landing on the moon!)
