Books Books Books

Sorry for the late post, but I was out of town for most of the day, and spent most of the evening recovering from the long drive. Of course, there was shopping involved, which is tiring in itself - even when it is satisfying. You see, I took the big trip into Loveland/Greeley and bought books.

It's quite a haul for me to reach a big bookstore, but it is so worth it. Of course, that long a drive means I don't go there often which also means I load up when I get there. Recession be damned!

Let's see... I got:

Rise of the Evening Star (Fablehaven Book II) by Brandon Mull
Then You Hide by Roxanne St. Claire
Master of Surrender by Karin Tabke
Twilight Fall by Lynn Viehl
Rites of Spring (Break) by Diana Peterfreund
The Darkest Pleasure by Gena Showalter

My daughter picked up four for herself, too. Including Ink Enchange as an early birthday present.

(Okay, so the recession wasn't so damned. There were several books I had to leave behind because my budget couldn't stretch to fit them.)

I'm halfway through the Brandon Mull. I really needed a good middle grade fantasy to escape into. (If you haven't read the Fablehaven books, you really should - even if you think you're too old for them. They transcend age.)

Just an FYI: If you're thinking about buying Twilight Fall, you better check with your local store before you go. The Borders was sold out, and I bought the last copy at this Barnes & Noble. Like hotcakes, I tell ya... Hotcakes.

So, what's on your to-buy book list?

I have to get through my current pile o' books before I even think of buying more.
