Summer is here, let's hear about your book buying this month.


message 2: by Lisa (new)

Lisa (lissarbry) | 7 comments Well, I swore I was not going to buy any more books until I made a dent in the 67 books I bought last month, but I saw a book on here this morning that looked too good to pass up so, I immediately went to Amazon to order it along with a couple of others. So, I have already bought three books this month!

I went to Anderson's Bookshop today for a book signing. Kim Harrison signed For a Few Demons More for me and Kelley Armstrong signed Frostbitten. I also bought the great The Body Finder and got Kimberly Derting's autograph. I bought a previously signed Out of My Mind by Sharon M. Draper and also bought Mockingbird by Kathryn Erskine and Toads and Diamonds by Heather Tomlinson. In addition, I got my Thriftsbook delivery of Strip Search by William Bernhardt and Still Waters: A Mystery by Nigel McCrery. Not a bad day at all, book-wise.

Valorie Nice selections Michelle and Joseph!!


message 22: by Tiffany (new)

Tiffany (herbtiff) | 411 comments Stopped at Borders because I had $15.00 to spend there before month end. Sadly or true to nature depending on what you decide spent more than the $15.00. Borders didn't have the book I was looking for and I didn't want to order it, so I went to Barnes and Noble to get it...

Artemis Fowl The Time Paradox (Artemis Fowl, #6) by Eoin Colfer The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner An Eclipse Novella by Stephenie Meyer The Golden Spiral (Hourglass Door Trilogy, #2) by Lisa Mangum

Judge you?! I'm jealous! I plan of going to the ubs to see if Witch and Warrior are still there. I saw them there on Saturday, but didn't get them, and have been wishing I did ever since.


message 33: by LooLoo (new)

LooLoo I have a question Michelle & Jamie, maybe you guys can answer. I have three books to be read by Marie Brennan, Doppelganger (Doppleganger 1) by Marie Brennan Warrior (Doppleganger 1) by Marie Brennan Witch (Doppleganger, #2) by Marie Brennan . It looks like the first two are the same book with different names. Do you have a clue. I bought them all thinking they were three different books in the series and now I'm confused.

Hmmm.... I wish I knew. I haven't gone to the bookstore yet, but I would think the first 2 books are the same book too.

Hi Looloo..

I am not sure, I was confused as well but, here is the link to Marie Brennans website.. and according to that I think you might have bought two of the same book. Doppelganger and Warrior are the same book. the series is now called 'Doppelganger', and they have updated the covers cause of the sequel.. (Witch)

I hope you kept your receipt.. :)

Good for you! I swear I'm in the right group. I've already reached my self imposed "book budget" for this month, and we're only into the second week. There's just no way I can go the rest of the month without going to a bookstore or a library sale etc... When I get stressed with work, I have to go to a bookstore. Other people may have a glass of wine after work, I go to a bookstore. Do I sound sick?
LOL!

Oh, and I really enjoyed Fade to Black by Leslie Parrish :)


message 41: by LooLoo (new)

LooLoo Jamie - thanks for the info. Didn't even think of looking for her website. LOL, no I don't have the receipt cause I picked them up months ago at a ubs and ebay so I'm not out much thank goodness.

Looloo, you could always try and sell your duplicate copy yourself and use the money for more books, or just trade it for that matter.

I'll probably just trade one at the ubs. Definitely won't let it be a total waste.

Michelle - I'm looking for Stealing Kathryn - lucky!!


Unapologetic_Bookaholic Found today while browsing:
The Dark-Hunters Vol.1 (manga) by Sherrilyn Kenyon Vol 1 and 2
Mysteria Lane by MaryJanice Davidson

@Jamie I want to read The Titan's Curse and Inside Out =D


Unapologetic_Bookaholic @Bluemoon I am being patient and on the WL at the Library. Knowing me I'd buy the whole set at the bookstore =D. I really am enjoying the series though.

I only went to the ubs just to see if Marie Brennan's Warrior/ Witch series was still available, and found Stealing Kathryn while digging through the shelves in the urban fantasy section. It seems like whenever I go to the ubs "to just get [book title here:]", I end up finding something else that I just have to have.
