One more book to add. I stopped at the bookstore before work and ended up reading a hardcover I've been eying up for a few months, By Winter's Light, by Stephanie Laurens. This was one of her winter/Christmas Cynster stories. It wasn't bad but it was a bit boring. It seemed to serve less as a romance and more of an introduction to the next generation of Cynsters. Which is fine, but definitely not hardcover-price-worthy. I'll wait until it comes out on paperback to actually buy it.
Last night when we got home from my brother's house we talked to the neighbors and found out that there is a long wait time to schedule driving exams. I went online just a bit ago and found out the earliest I can take mine is September 2. Five friggin' months? They only test on Wednesdays at my local troopers barracks. That is absolutely ridiculous.
I've scheduled it because my permit expires on the 12th. This should be interesting. Mom will bug and badger me to drive as much as possible and I still want to just curl up in a ball at the very idea. I now have to find an instructor and that means sopending more money I don't have to get something I absolutely want no part of. Lovely. Maybe the area will suddenly get metropolitan-rated public transportation in the next month and I can forget all about it. What? It could happen (in a mirror universe).
