Remember my temptation issues, wanting to buy the third and well yes the fourth as well, in the Twilight series but not being able to partly because finances wouldn't stretch that far, not when they weren't essential and I already have so many other books to read, not to mention the use of two very good libraries.
So in the course of conversation I shared my dilemma with a friend at work and do you know what she did? She went out and bought book three and book four and gave them to me to read before she even read them. She said she knew I'd read them way quicker than her and she was going to buy them anyway. I feel totally blessed that someone would do that for me. I fully understand how precious books are and how hard it can be to lend a book out.
I read book three last night and thoroughly enjoyed every word. I am starting book four tonight.
So today I count a friend as a very special blessing.
