By the time this post is published, we will all be back home, but right this moment, as I type this up, we are enjoying our last day at Daufuskie, a secluded island near Hilton Head, SC and Savannah, GA. We were lucky to score a cottage (without having to break the bank) with front-row access to the beach, something that has always been on my bucket list and that I was thrilled to cross off.  This week has been very refreshing and just what I needed - a getaway, a break from it all, a retreat with family with no thoughts of work, to-do lists, and chores getting in the way. The island sure runs on its own time. The streetlights aren't turned ON at night to avoid attracting turtles too far from their ideal nesting place. There's the alligator crossing time at night when they go from pond to pond visiting friends (and hence tourists are advised to stay home when it's dark).

So, Rainwater won the battle of the books today! I managed to convince myself that if I didn't get to Not my Daughter, I can still place it on hold and read some other time, hopefully when all my holds do not come together. (Speaking of holds, I have 3 new holds available now. So I doubt there will ever be a situation when all my holds cease to come together)

nice blog and nice Teaser! my teaser is from An Unfinished Score by Elise Blackwell http://tinyurl.com/yckvdhj
I LOVED this story. So different from the old Sandra Brown.
Interesting teaser! Enjoy!

I just think you're lucky that you're allowed to place holds on so many books. My library limits me to three. Three! Luckily, my hubby doesn't use his card too much, so I can put three more on his, but that still feels like a ridiculously low number.

Diane, I loved it too!

Jennifer, I can put only 8, but yeah, 3 sucks! 6, too. I guess for people like me, anything above 5 is too much, considering all my holds tend to come together! Maybe its the library's way of making us feel less guilty, in the event we can't read a book. ;-)
