I love it when things go better than expected, even in the relatively small stuff. For example: we placed an order with Amazon last Thursday to redeem a gift certificate (woo hoo!). The confirmation screen indicated that it would ship on July 14 and arrive between July 16 and 19.

The box arrived yesterday (the 12th).

Of course, this may cause me to re-adjust my reading priorities. We got Bainton's biography of Martin Luther, Here I Stand, and Tom Wright's The Meal Jesus Gave Us, which Allison is already devouring (yes, that was intentional). We also got Recovering the Lost Tools of Learning by Doug Wilson, but that is more likely to give Al problems with book-reading prioritization than it will myself.

Tim Gallant's blog has a separate section for "Bookshelf Arrivals." That might not be a bad idea, since we've gotten some pretty cool books lately that might not make their way into their respective reading queues for awhile.

Now repeat the mantra: So many books, so little time.
