In My Mailbox

I had a basically amazing week in books since it was my birthday, and I also gave myself a pre-NaNo reward. And on the note of NaNo, it is going fantastically for me so far! As of Thursday night, since I did no writing on Friday, I've written 31494 words on SlackerBoy and am having a total blast with it. This just might be my favorite of my three manuscripts I've written this year. You can find my NaNo page here, for those of you interested in such things. But now on to my books! Hooray!
