I never had to buy an mp3 player because I’ve won three in the last six years. Well, technically a research paper of mine won a cash prize I used to acquire my Dell DJ back in the day (I miss that Dell DJ…) but then later I won an iPod in a drawing and another iPod in a drawing (second one I gave my sister). So I am pretty lucky on the MP3 player front.
Today I got an email from Random House saying that I was one of twenty to win an early release of Diana Gabaldon’s new Outlander book called An Echo in the Bone. The book should be mine in a few days I hope. I need to clear out my reading schedule. Heh. 800+ pages to read before its official release. :D
