Today was friends and family day at Kmart, and I've been putting off a shopping trip to buy Daniel jeans (he only had one pair) and Launa tennis shoes (she wears a 9, her old ones were a 7) because we have been on a tight budget lately, but with Jeremy's sister starting at Kmart I decided to head over there today for the extra percentage off. Anyway, I was walking toward the shoes, and I passed the book aisle. Just out of curiosity, I stuck my head in. There, in the very front, big and beautiful with a black cover and a red ribbon cascading down the front, was a copy of the next book in the series: Eclipse! I took the book off the shelf, and there was something different behind it. I looked all over the aisle, and there were no other Stephenie Meyer books anywhere. The price was $14.99 - list price $19.99, plus I had the friends and family discount. I decided it was a sign that God wanted me to have this book. So I picked it up! YAY! Now, as soon as I'm done with New Moon, I can read the next one without having to wait for 3 weeks! And, it's hefty, so it must be the longest book in the series.
