Today is my nephew Gabriel’s second birthday! I can’t be with him and my sis and the rest of the fam as they celebrate. My heart is with them though. I wish my litte buddy all the best today as he marks his second year on Earth. He’s growing up so fast! It makes me so proud to see him becoming a little man.
My sis wanted me to get this book for her when I was working at the book distributor but we literally ran out the day she asked me. I was disappointed, she was disappointed and our plan to read the book together was foiled.
In the meantime I moved to Charlotte. She moved from an apartment to a house… and we still hadn’t laid hands on copies of the book.
Until last week.
My crazy, wonderful sister bought me a copy to (along with the Vanity Fair with RPattz on the cover…) and mailed it to me along with some other goodies (Kings of Leon, Paramore, and NKOTB discs). We’re going to read a 142 pages a week for three weeks, discussing as we read via text, twitter and phone calls. Then when the movie comes out later this month, we’ll see that (in our respective cities) as well.
Yesterday she suggested that we reread The Three Musketeers, which we read to each other when we were roommates and she was preggers with my now 15 year old (!) nephew. I think it’s a good idea. And there is a new movie for that one too.
I think I’m going to call this the Sisters Long Distance Book Club… or not.
