This doesn't mean I'm going to buy myself a lottery ticket.

After entering a bazillion book giveaways over the last several months, I'm excited to say I've finally won one!!

My Friend Amy was hosting a giveaway of Wild Goose Chase by Mark Batterson back during BBAW and now my hope has been renewed that lady luck may not have completely shunned me.
I received an email on Wednesday from Amy saying that sure enough, I had won!!!

Other fun news, GreenApple Publicity offered me a free online copy of Jumble Pie by Melanie Lynn Hauser. If you are interested in reading this book, you can receive your own PDF copy by clicking here and signing up! It's easy, free and I've read some great reviews, so why wouldn't you try it??! As soon I get a chance to read my copy, I'll be posting a review as well.

Since the fall has begun, I'm finding it more difficult to squeeze in a few pages here and there. I went camping this last weekend with some friends and thought for sure I'd have time to curl up with The Memory of Water by Karen White in my lawn chair with a cup of coffee next to the campfire. But oh no! I was way too much of a chatterbox hanging out with my friends than to be found reading.

I'm also struggling to figure out how to balance the evenings between reading and indulging in my favorite fall shows!! Has anyone figured out how to do this?! I'm a huge fan of Dancing With The Stars (go Brooke Burke!), Greys Anatomy, Private Practice and Samantha Who?

What are your favorite fall shows that your keeping up with?

The Office. and I like the new show The Mentalist. my hubs has an odd fascination with CSI Miami so i get sucked in with that one too.

I love the cover of that book (Memory of Water).

I am having a hard time getting pages in myself. I can't really blame TV for it. More like a generalized distraction.

However, the shows that I TIVO are Lipstick Jungle... love that show and Biggest Loser. I know, I know.. reality TV but I love to share in their pain.

I'm only into a couple of shows: Heroes and The Office. I do watch the Monday night comedies on CBS, but I wouldn't mind missing them.
