For the last week I have been sick- and it sucked really bad. Today, while exhausted, I feel more myself so I decided to reward myself with an outing. I went to my favorite Chinese Buffett, then hit a local book shop on the way home. I had never been in here, because I am mostly a digital reader. It takes up less space and when you are a book addict with literally hundreds of books, that is something to consider.
Before anyone says anything, yes my TBR pile has hit triple digits. I just can’t help myself! Plus, three of these books were .25 a piece and the other two were half off! You can’t get eBooks that cheap! (Grand total was $10.) Seriously, I hope every town has a book shop like this- they’re wonderful. I will probably visit more than is good for me.
Add to this, the library is getting Ladivine by Marie NiDaiye at my request. I will be first in line when that comes in! I am so excited about that! I have been seriously evaluating the pros and cons of buying that book for a little bit (“ooh… a beautiful new book!” “but, remember you’re poor.” “I could eat ramen for lunch for a couple weeks….” the mental rambling goes n, but you get the picture).
One of my book sites that email me ( I think it was Free Booksie) had a few goodies today. I picked up The Last Single Girl by Bria Quinlan and Shadow of a Century by Jean Grainger.
On the 18th First To Read will be giving me my guaranteed copies of:
- Jonathan Unleashed, by Meg Rosoff
- Little Girl Gone by Gerry Schmitt
- Pond by Claire-Louise Bennett
I am super excited about all these! It may take a while to get to them all, but it’ll be fun!
