Kristi (KristiCasey) | 660 comments That B&N is a dangerous place! I didn't use to be an issue for me as I don't have one all that close, but now that my kids are old enough to like being taken to the mall I find myself in there a little more frequently.

Just a couple of weeks ago, I took my kids because they had books they wanted to pick up with their allowance and I walked out with 4 books of my own. Oy!

Lisa-Alexa  (Lisa-Alexa) | 142 comments Oh, and i also purchased, finally "S." by John Updike. Love his books!!!! I know it's part of a series on his obsession of Hawthorne's "Scarlet Letter". To this day, I'll never forget that book along with Hester Prynne or Mr.Arthur Dimsdale from American Lit. (and that was in high school I read it-(cough!)
My library was sick of me hogging their copy. (Although, I already bought most of Updike's book's on my kindle a long time ago. :-)! Total book addict!
