Look what I got from my in-laws as an early birthday present! Flannery: A Life of Flannery O'Connor, the new biography by Brad Gooch about one of my favorite writers.
It was all I could do not to start reading even before the wrapping paper was crumpled and thrown away. I'm really looking forward to reading this one, and might have to consider bumping a few of my library books off to get to this sooner rather than later.
Also, my sister-and-brother-in-law and their kids gave me a gift certificate to Barnes & Noble, which you know I will make good use of. Thank you so much! (My in-laws are regular readers of this blog.)
