Just got back from Wal-Mart, and I’ve got Karen Templeton’s new SSE, Dear Santa!

:boogie: It’s a good day!

Random other thoughts:

The Desire and…Romantic Suspense (?) lines have yellow stickers at Wal-Mart and are an additional 50 cents off their already awesome price.

And this SSE “feels” different. It’s more flexible, as if the cover’s a thinner stock. And, other than an excerpt from LLM’s McKettrick SSE, there are blank pages in place of the back matter. No ads or coming next months or anything. Weird.

Anyway, off to read! I have never been let down by a KT book, so it’s going to be a great afternoon. :boogie:

    I noticed those 50 cent off stickers, too. H/S seems to be doing a lot of this kind of promo.

    Must. Get. To Walmart. My local grocery store seems to have dropped ALL category lines. I’m crushed. :cry:

    Congrats on your Blaze, too, Jill! I picked it up, as well.

    And that’s wicked sad, Charli. Tossing a category into the cart while grocery shopping is one of my most decadent pleasures. :hug:

    I got it and haven’t cracked it open yet, but I will. I’m behind on Sven, so trying to make it up today. Wish me luck. LOL

    Now, see — you, like, never post on weekends, so I didn’t check until today. :doh:

    But yay. That’s it out, that you found it, that you bought it.


    (And man, are they getting released earlier and earlier, or what?)

    (Oh, and your BoSox post was priceless. Really gotta hear Tessie sometime. :rofl:

    :heart: Have you finished it yet? Because, well, I have. I did absolutely nothing but read all day and of course answer the phone when I had too. Honestly, this is my favorite KT so far. Finish it so we can dish.

    Heather…:hug: (Not sure if that’s the most appropriate smiley, but it came the closest!)

    My life recently has been…well, let’s just say challenging and let it go at that. :eyebrow: So I think I love you.

    :hug: Karen!

    And I loved it, too. It was a little more of a tearjerker for me than usual, probably because I have a little guy dealing with losing his Grampy, but it was awesome. :heart:

    So…when’s the next one come out? :neener:

    Well, :heart: to you, too. And the next one’s out in January (so right before Christmas, actually). Rudy’s story. My fave of the three, although my ed says she likes Kevin’s story best. That’s in April.

    And :hug: for all the :crazy: at Casa Shannon.

    Is it something in the air??? :shrug:
