What a surprise it was to get a package from UPS today. No, it wasn’t a leg lamp, but something even better. “Even better than a leg lamp?!”, you say, “Impossible!”.
It was an advance reading copy of the new Dean Koontz novel, Life Expectancy, courtesy of Random House! About a month ago, I’d answered some trivia questions at the publisher’s website and mine was one of the randomly-chosen entries. Though still voiceless and feeling yucky from this virus, I now do have something really good to read when I snuggle under the covers. Hitler’s Niece, by Ron Hansen, is the selection I’m reading right now, and I guess I’ll finish it before treating myself to the new book. Best yet, I don’t have to worry about reading it before I accumulate library fines.
