This morning I was up early and was at my desk in the office going through email before it was even light outside. Buried in my email was an email from Audible that offered me the opportunity to buy three credits to add to my subscription there. It wasn’t quite like being offered three wishes, but it was pretty good. Never one to let an opportunity to collect books (or audio books) pass I clicked through to my audible account. On a lark I decided to check and see whether Sarah McCarty’s Hell’s Eight book Tracker’s Sin had made it to Audible. I’d been disappointed the last time I’d been to Audible because it hadn’t been released in audio there yet.
It’s funny how happy finding that it had indeed arrived there made me. It gave me a spring in my step…a cheeriness. It made me smile. Broadly.
I suppose maybe part of it is that I am planning a trip to my parents’ house next week, and the trip requires an eight or nine hour drive each way… having the book on my iPod will allow me to lose myself in what I am sure will be a wonderful story by one of my favorite authors. Finding Tracker’s Sin in audio format took me from dreading the hours in the car to actually looking forward to them.
It’s just a little thing really…but sometimes it’s the little things that make you happy. What little things make you happy?
