I have an addictive personality. Most people wouldn't know it because I am also a control freak. So I get addicted to stuff, but I can usually control it.
You know I'm addicted to books, right?
Maybe you don't. But I am.
Before I started to write I read a book a day (almost) and still held down a demanding job and demanding man (if he played his cards right). Now I only read 1-2 books a week, most evenings being tied up with writing until 10-10.30 pm. But there is one woman I can not resist. Suzanne Brockmann. Read excerpt here...
So Suz has a new book coming out in August 15th. A terrible date as it happens. Because I'm in the UK.
I joined the Doubleday bookclub with the proviso they sell Suz'a books. But I checked the website and it isn't there yet:( I ordered a $25 Chapters voucher with airmile rewards so I could go buy it, but who knows when that'll be here. I ALMOST ordered it to arrive at my parents-in-law when we are back in the UK in August. I got to that last button stage in Amazon dot uk and stopped.
Tomorrow my addictive personality will be tested again when I think how good it would be to know the book is sitting waiting in Scotland. I can feel myself wavering already, just thinking about it...
