Do you remember when I asked if you'd work really hard for a month to earn an iPad? (It was one of the "takes" in my last "7 Quick Takes" post. I'd link to it but I'm lazy.)
Well, this is is the month and I'm going to go for it.
I've been asked to review five iBooks by a local company that's produced them. They are engaging books but HARD--we're talking Macbeth, Beowolf, Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, the poetry of William Blake, and assorted sonnets. In exchange for completing these reviews by the end of the month, I get to keep the iPad...which is a first edition version but still. I have always wanted an iPad and my husband has always said NO. (It's a "we're broke" and "he's a PC guy" kind of thing.)
Oh, and I get paid for each book that I finish.
It's clearly a win/win proposition, in my opinion--win/win AND focus/focus. It can be hard for a blogger to focus, and so I'm not going to BE a blogger...
...for the next couple weeks.
(Unless I work REALLY hard and can afford a break.)
So there you go! My impending absence has been explained--perhaps unnecessarily--and I will see you on the other side.
With love and iHugs,
