Gratitude 2 of 7

Gratitude Day 2

#1 I am Grateful for: BYU Football

Ah! After a bye week and a loss against TCU, BYU redeemed themselves with a sweet win over Wyoming.

(Sidenote: We had a young man from England hanging at our house today. He saw the game on and finally clicked that the big "Y" on our vehicles, mountains, etc wasn't for "Yahoo" - but for BYU. So funny.)

(Additional Sidenote: They don't have Rootbeer in England)

# 2 I am Grateful for: A Good Book!

I spent the last week reading "The Thief" by Megan Whalen Turner. It was GREAT! I would particularly suggest it to young adult readers and their moms who like a little bit of fantasy. I'm sighing internally as I think about this book.

#3 I am Grateful for: A Good Book and its Sequel

I spent time this week reading "The Queen of Attolia" by Megan Whalen Turner -- sequel to "The Thief". Man it was good!

#4 I am Grateful for: A Good Book, its Sequel and its Sequel

Again, spent time reading this week: "The King of Attolia". Holy crap, talk about true love! There isn't crazy mushy stuff in this, but you know what love is by the end of the book. I really enjoyed this series and am looking forward to the next installment come March 2010. I hope I can wait.

I love that you love that series! Isn't it the greatest? And aren't you so glad you didn't read the King of Attolia almost four years ago when it first came out? I know I'm glad I didn't.

And Yahoo. That's funny!

So I just started reading "The Help". I'm about 1/4 of the way through and.....tell me it's not sad. I can't take sad right now....HELP!

I agree with the assessment of The Thief. And its sequel. And its sequel to the sequel.
