An unexpected surprise

My mom is the best. Although she didn't know I was upset, she gave me a surprise (yay for surprises!) that made me feel a bit better.

She bought the newest book by my favorite author, Elizabeth Peters, in hardback - Children of the Storm - and is letting me read it first! :D (Elizabeth Peters' books for the uninitiated: set in Egypt and England in the early 1900s, mystery, archaeology, strong female characters, a dash of romance - think The Mummy only not quite so supernatural.)

Of course, I have to finish my current book first - it does not do to leave a book unfinished. But I have this to look forward to, and it has definitely cheered me up a bit.
