A wish came true

Today when I got home from work, I found a package from Amazon in my mailbox. My physical mailbox, that is. I scratched my head as I opened it, wondering what I had ordered and forgotten about.

When I opened the box I found a copy of Donald A. Norman’s The Design of Everyday Things, along with a couple of lines thanking me for what I do here at 456 Berea Street. Wow!

I created an Amazon wish list and published a link to it last summer and had all but forgotten about it, so when this showed up I was very surprised. And happy :-).

Thank you so much for buying me this. It really means a lot.

  1. So, it does work!

    But only for those that really deserve it I guess. ;)

  2. “Donald A. Norman’s The Design of Everyday Things”

    that’s funny, i just bought that book for myself last week. haven’t started it yet, but it looks pretty good.

  3. It’s a very good book. I can recommend Norman’s “Things that make us smart” as well.

    Andrew: Hah ;-)

    I’ve heard a lot about this book, so I’m looking forward to reading it.
