"Waiting On" Wednesday: Today Will Be Different

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted here, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Today Will Be Different

By Maria Semple

Publication Date: October 4

From Amazon:

Eleanor knows she's a mess. But today, she will tackle the little things. She will shower and get dressed. She will have her poetry and yoga lessons after dropping off her son, Timby. She won't swear. She will initiate sex with her husband, Joe. But before she can put her modest plan into action, life happens. Today, it turns out, is the day Timby has decided to fake sick to weasel his way into his mother's company. It's also the day Joe has chosen to tell his office, but not Eleanor, that he's on vacation. Just when it seems like things can't go more awry, an encounter with a former colleague produces a graphic memoir whose dramatic tale threatens to reveal a buried family secret.

  12. This is a book I needed, filled with humor both loud and soft, filled with a very flawed woman who struggles through a very traumatic day with the sudden realizations that change her and perhaps lead her on a new path. I loved Where'd You Go Burnadette and I love this one too.

  15. سواتر قماش تمتاز عن باقي أنواع السواتر بالتكلفة البسيطة المناسبة ولكن لا ننصحك بها عزيزي العميل إذا كنت ستسخدمها على المدي البعيد.تتوفر سواتر الأقمشة بالعديد من التغطيات المختلفة منها سواتر بي في سي بصناعة كورية لا تمتص مياه الامطار بالإضافة إلي منع الحرارة و سواتر قماش بي في سي أسترالي تمتاز بمقاومة الحرائق و تحمل الرياح القوية و الثبات بشكل جيد إضافة إلي إمكانية الفك واعادة التركيب عند حاجتك إلي ذلك.

  16. The buyer, the seller and the bank sign an agreement, whereby they agree on necessary documents, terms and other conditions as required to complete the deal, along with any critical milestones along the way. An escrow agent – the bank, acts as an impartial holder of the money or documents, and in this way keeps the risk of such things as fraud to a minimum for both parties.

  17. The majority of people believe that hiring writing pros is outrageously expensive. However, because the majority of consumers are students on a restricted budget, such services are extremely affordable. As a result, everyone in need of academic aid can afford the services. If you want high-quality help with paper, engage a professional writer from a legitimate and reputable writing service, and you will never be sorry.
