And if you were wondering, he's single and a catch. Jake will be using massage therapy to pay his way through grad school. AND, he plays the guitar and sings. Oh, and he's good at all those things. Plus, he's one of my favorite people--he's funny and loyal and, above all things, cute. Sometime in the next month, I'll be promoting Jake's buddy, Blake, who is also a catch, but I thought it necessary to say something nice about Jake here.
But I'm mostly writing this post to tell you about a few things I'm currently loving. I think it might be a nice turn from the serious nature of the last few posts (though, I have all of a sudden gained a fairly large following from my hometown area over those last few blogs), and I don't think it hurts to smile over things from time to time, either.
Now for something revolutionary.
One major benefit is the fact that books for ereaders are cheaper than buying a regular book. Since I'm in grad school, that's a HUGE benefit. Plus, if I finish a book, and there's another in the series, I can buy it and start reading right away instead of waiting until I can find the next book in the series. Also, since I read a lot (like, a lot. I haven't updated that book tracker thingy in quite some time), I think this may be a more economical way of getting books. Will it keep from from ever buying a book again? I don't know. I don't totally see that happening, but we'll see, I guess. (Oh, and you should also know that this version of the Nook allows readers to borrow ebooks from their local libraries. Pretty cool, right?)
And, last, but not least, these people:
This Thanksgiving, enjoy the people who surround you. Love them. Appreciate them. And thank God He's given you others.
