Saturday Scribbles Vol 2.2

Happy Saturday morning my friends! I learned something new yesterday at work. I learned how to set a specific folder on a specific drive to be the default when the program (Word, Excel, PowerPoint) is opened. You see, one of the computer classrooms at work got new computers for the entire room. So that meant that all of the defaults were now back at factory settings. And in these computer classrooms, we don't want the students hunting through the network drive to find the files or to save things. So I learned how to do that. It was really rather simple to do too.

I've been stalking my mailbox all week. I was expecting to get Jody Hedlund's newest book, Undaunted Hope, in before January started. But they were delayed at the publisher. So everyday this week, I've had fun conversations with my mail carrier. I stopped by yesterday and she told me she's got the package I was waiting on. Needless to say, I was excited. She proceeds to hand me not one, not two, but six packages of books! And UPS had left notices on my door that I had packages in the office both Thursday and Friday. So that's 8 packages of books! I really wasn't expecting them to all show up the same day. Here's my haul.

From the author:

  • Jody Hedlund's newest Undaunted Hope
  • Regina Jenning's newest At Love's Bidding
  • Karen Witemeyer's newest novella in the collection With This Ring

Those three are all ones that I'm part of the author's influence team for.

The prize I won during the Seekerville (one of the blogs I follow) New Year Eve's bash:

  • Julie Lessman's Isle of Hope. See, I've already read this one. The actual prize was an ebook of it, but since she knew that I'd already gotten it, she agreed to let me have a paperback copy so it can join her other books on my shelf. This is the book that she named a character after me in too.

My normal books to review that I actually requested:

  • Brooklyn on Fire from  Waterbrook. This one's a mystery and it'll be a new to me author. So I'm looking forward to reading it.
  • Irene Hannon's newest Thin Ice from Revell. 
  • Tracie Peterson/Kimberly Woodhouse's new one, Beyond the Silence from Bethany House
  • Susan May Warren's conclusion to the Christiansen Family series, You're the One that I Want from Tyndale. 
It's been a long time since I had this many books arrive on the same day! I'll probably start with Jody's first. I have a feeling my mom and my cousin will probably want to read Susan's and Irene's.

So my library books I have out will either take a backseat or become a priority. I've not decided yet.
