The rules are blog about something good in your life. It can be something little or something big, but the goal is to find the positive in life and celebrate it. Then hop around the linky list on Lexa's blog and see what others are celebrating.
My post today is inspired by KT Daxon's post about her new release, Broken Tomorrow, and how a memory of her mom is her biggest fan. Seriously, go read it then come back here.
You back? Great.
So, what's that got to do with me? Well, it reminded me of a surprise I got when we were going through my brother's stuff. He was a history buff, especially the world wars. He had bookcases full of them (as well as Star Wars and JRR Tolkien books.) Before he died, he bought a Nook. It was easier to carry when he was stuck at the hospital waiting to see his doctors.
My older sister was curious to what the Nook could do because her oldest son wanted a table. We turned it on, and to all our surprise, among the World War books was MY book, Being Human. He never said a peep about buying my book, and I don't know if he got to read it before passing, but it was sweet to know he cared enough to support me by buying my book.
PS: The Nook was just for reading, so my nephew didn't get it. I currently have it and have no idea what to do it. Was considering switching to it and giving away my Kindle, but with B&N struggling I don't know if that will be a good idea.
