This past weekend I was in another part of town running some errands and had the chance to stop in Recycled Reads for a bit of browsing. The Recycled Reads store is the Austin library’s way of giving books a second chance. Most paperbacks are $1 and hardbacks $2. What a bargain right?
I didn’t have much time to browse around but I still managed to find three books I had to have:
- A Field of Darkness by Cornelia Read. This is one of those books I had marked as a “must-read” a while back but of course have since forgotten why. Still a first in a mystery series so I like that.
- The Coroner’s Lunch by Colin Cotterill. My mystery book group read one of these authors books but I missed the discussion. I believe everyone liked the book and some have since gone on to read more of the series and recommend it so I was happy to find this one.
- The Secret Life of CeeCee Wilkes by Diane Chamberlain. Overview: In 1977, pregnant Genevieve Russell disappeared. Twenty years later, her remains are discovered and Timothy Gleason is charged with murder. But there is no sign of the unborn child.CeeCee Wilkes knows how Genevieve Russell died, because she was there. Sounds like a good drama ahead.
I’ve also received quite a few review copies which I feel slightly guilty about as I haven’t done much in the way of book reviews lately but I’ll tell you about some of them in another post. It’s been interesting been off the book blogging world for a while as I feel like I don’t know what’s the new “it” book. In a way, it is kind of neat as it reminds me of how I used to find my new books to read before blogland. But I am finally dipping back into blogland and it is so nice to visit with you.
