I'm thrilled with my prize!

I'm thrilled with my prize! A few days ago I received a call from our local library saying they were reminding me that I won a prize for participating in the summer reading program. That was the first I'd heard I'd won. I had hoped to make it to the library when it opened today.

All of a sudden, at 10:00 I recalled that I'd meant to go to the library! I left the house with two of our five children; #3 and #5. I hoped I was going to arrive early enough to receive a gift certificate I'd be happy with; it was first-come-first-serve.

I was pleasantly surprised to find that more than 50% of the cards remained. As soon as I saw Barnes and Noble listed I stopped paying attention and informed the librarians that one of those would suit me. I came home with a $25 gift card!

I'll hold onto it for awhile. I'm not sure if we'll be buying a NOOK Color for one of the kids for Christmas or if I'll get to use it to buy some new ebooks. Either way, I'm thrilled.
