Didn’t mean to stop in at Borders again as it’s just a sad place with so many shelves bare and books all of out of order but I got an email with my Borders Bucks balance and I need to take advantage of that while the stores are still open here.
I was surprised that they still had quite a few books that appealed to me although I think the mystery section was pretty much gone. If I read a lot of the Austen spin-offs I would have been in paradise as they had a lot of those books. Anyway, here’s what I came away with:
- Unfinished Desires by Gail Godwin. I’ve read one of her books and really loved it and she’s one of those authors whose books I love to collect. The storylines always seem to touch on subjects I want to read about.
- Delirium by Lauren Oliver. I know a lot of you have raved about this YA book so I was excited to find a copy.
- Death and the Running Patterer by Robin Adair. I don’t recall reading about this book before but it’s a historical mystery set in Australia so that’s a bit different from my typical mystery reads and so I couldn’t leave it behind.
- The Distant Hours by Kate Morton. I loved her book The House at Riverton so this was an easy book choice.
Today was a great day. Went for a bike ride, took a nap and have been reading a lot. I finished Close To Home by Peter Robison which I thought was quite a great read. Unfortunately I didn’t get to read the Slaves of Golconda book. I’m sorry guys, I won’t be joining in the discussion this time around but still look forward to hearing what everyone thought of the book.
Oh yes and I went to the library too. I broke my library ban so I’ll tell you about my library loot tomorrow. Now I’m off to do a bit more reading. Have a wonderful week ahead.
