4. At the library, I happened on a new book by Frederick Forsyth, author of the classic Day of the Jackal. I grabbed it and checked it out. It’s called The Kill List. “Oh, you got a Lucky Day book,” the librarian told me. “Do you know what that is?” She said this book has about 100 holds since it came out in August. But the publisher agreed to circulate a few copies that never go on hold. Almost impossible to find, these are dubbed Lucky Day books. No money is involved, I didn’t win anything I’ll keep. But still, just knowing I got the Lucky Day copy made me feel kind of like I had grabbed the brass ring. Bonus: It’s a fast-moving, entertaining thriller.
5. Are you dressing up for Halloween? My office team discussed doing something together (would you believe we talked about being a city with traffic and a sun and snow?). But for various reasons, that’s not going to happen. So it’s up to me whether I want to dress up. Any suggestions?
Hope your week is going well and that in some way big or small, it’s been your Lucky Day, too.
