Some Book Buys

Who braved the shopping malls this weekend? Not us. We did go book shopping though and that’s always fun. I had coupons for Borders and I also wanted to check out the stock at Half Price Books so here’s what I found.

At Borders after enjoying a vanilla latte and reading some magazines I spent a good bit of time jotting down titles I want to check out later (I’ll have to share those in another post) and I then I looked for The Company of Liars by Karen Maitland but they didn’t have it. I was in the mood for a historical so I was really bummed out when I couldn’t find that one.

I had a coupon though and I was determined to buy something and then I saw The Lacuna by Barbara Kingsolver. Oh I love her writing so I quickly grabbed this one and I was about to get going but then I also saw Night Train to Lisbon by Pascal Mercier and well I didn’t want to leave it behind either so I took both.

Then it was off to Half Price Books where my husband found some German mystery/crime books and he was very excited about those. I was able to find a couple of great bargains on old vintage books. These are books I tear up and use in projects. Yes, I do damage to books sometimes but I also try to give books a new life so I don’t feel so bad about that.

A bit of a sidenote on book projects and crafting in general, I was looking through Amazon and there are at least four books coming out next year on bookbinding and art journaling that I must have. I showed them to my husband so I hope he paid attention. Hee-hee.

Alright I hope you all have a wonderful week ahead. I’ve finished a couple of books recently so I want to write some reviews this week. For now, I’ve just started The House at Riverton by Kate Morton and am wondering what took me so long. Great so far.
