I had x-mas money to burn. So I journeyed to my local book store. I had left over money from what I allocated for shopping, a good 75 bucks. So that went to books. Well most of it did anyways. I've bought six books, in two days. Two from yesterday was when I was at Costco with my mom. I was hunting for a digital camera...which I failed at miserably. Anyways I saw two books there that caught my eyes (only two, they don't have much of a selection) So I got,
A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini
Sepulchre by Kate Mosse (does anyone know if this is the sequel to the Labyrith by the same author?)
Today I went to chapters. And I was good. I passed by about fifteen books that BEGGED me to take them home (does anyone else have this problem? Books jumping out of the shelves at you into your hands and proclaiming you are now there owner?) And at one point I had five books in my hand, but I set to down, because, I knew I could get them at my trustee used book store for a better price.
So the books I got at Chapters are....
Middlemarch by George Eliot ( I got the Premier Classics Edition 800+ pages I think I may have to do some rearranging on my shelf.)
Bleak House by Charles Dickens (again, its a little thick, so when I get back to my place, my shelves will be in need of rearrangement)
The Birth House - Ami McKay
Also in Chapters, I got what is one of my favoruite purchases of the day (yes even more then the books, and I mean I LOVE books) It was this black cloth, reusable tote bag, with the words "I love to read" as well as J'adore lire (french) on one side, and on the other a picture of a bunch of open books stacked on top of eachother.... its soo cool! Not to mention, when I went accross the street to the mall afterwards, I had about three comments on it! I know have a new bag to take when I go book shopping I can book shop and save the environment (its a little bit of a oxymoron I know, but know more plastic bags while I shop for precious books!)
I wish I had a picture, but I don't have my camera and because shopping for one failed, I can't take a picture...but I will eventually.
Oh, and finally I got a book for Christmas
The Venetian Betryal by Steven Berry
