Bookish baby

Do not leave me unattended in a bookstore with a credit card. I repeat: do not leave me unattended in a bookstore with a credit card.

I often just read on my iPad, so it's rare that I go to a bookstore anymore and buy actual books. When I do, though, it seems I get a little bit out of control. You know it's a bad sign when you leave a bookstore with a shopping bag.

Look at all of these lovelies that I snagged for a total of $34! Woot - woot! Between the clearance rack and it being a special educator's discount weekend, I really feel like I got my money's worth on this trip to B & N.

Most of these books were items I'd never heard of, but I do like a lot of these authors. I've read Jodi Picoult, Alice Sebold, Paul Coelho, Maeve Binchy, and Preston & Child before and really enjoyed them. I've also read some short stories by Doris Lessing. The other handful of books I chose just sounded very interesting, so I decided to risk it.

Now, how in the world am I going to make time to read all of these? Hmmm....too bad I have to work for a living. :)


  1. Great price!! Shopping for books is my favorite king of shopping; I can spend hours in a good bookstore!

  2. Great haul! Looking forward to some reviews!
