One Day by David Nicholls is set to release in cinemas!

If you haven't read the book yet but want to do so before seeing the film, now's the time!

In the US the release date is set as 19th August.
It premiers in the UK on 24 August; in London on 23 August.
Seems sort of unfair that it will be released in the US first. I'm not sure how such things are decided.

My Review of One Day by David Nicholls

One Day (Vintage Contemporaries Original) 1st (first) edition Text Only

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.
