My New Books!
Thursday is my work-from-home day, and as usual, I have a full day of teleconferences. I was in the middle of one of the boring calls when someone rang my doorbell. I tried not to miss the discussion and so I ran out of my room to open the door. I was thrilled to see a postman at my doorstep!
Well, let me explain why a postman could make me so happy. I ordered 5 books (1 cookbook, 1 book about life in cooking school, and 3 non food-related books) from a website in US way back in May. When I placed my order, I have to choose my preferred shipping speed. Being a cheapskate ( ;-) ), I opted for surface mail, since the delivery cost is much lower. This resulted in a long, long wait for the books. When I saw the postman, I knew that the books have finally arrived!
Now that I've received this batch of books, I have another long wait, because I've just placed an order for two more cookbooks... !
