While I was out running errands today I stopped by at Half Price Books because Sandy has recently been giving me lots of suggestions on new mysteries to try. Unfortunately I couldn’t find any of the books I was looking for, but I found out that next weekend HPB has a big sale so I didn’t linger around too long and will be back then and with a big bag. heh.
It was still a day of books though because when I got the mail today I had two books that Les sent me. The Travelling Hornplayer by Barbara Trapido and The Musician’s Daughter by Susanne Dunlap. They both sound wonderful and wasn’t that totally sweet of Les?
What else? Oh yes, I have a few of links for you to check out. For those of you who are fans of Gabriel García Márquez did you see the recent Borzoi Reader? A new biography of the master of magical realism is out this month and you can check the sneak preview as well as 25 intriguing facts about GGM.
Now for those of you who collect bookmarks, isn’t this liquid bookmark cool? I could totally see myself using the red one for one of my whodunit books.
Anyway, I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. I’ve got lots of housework and other random chores to take care of this weekend but reading will get done somehow.
