Thursday Shopping Spree
Did you ever have one of those weeks when you just needed to find something to make you smile. I'm such an optimist, but even I can face the "wall" on occasion. It is during these times when I head to my Indie Shop, Borders, Amazon or......Good Will. All of these as you know spell trouble, with a capital T, or as an optimist like me would say-bliss, with a capital B.
So today I made three out of four visits. I stopped by my local Goodwill Store and picked up $10.00 worth of books:
Stolen Lives by Malika Oufkir
Leap of Faith by Queen Noir
The Marmot Drive by John Hershey
Drowning Ruth by Christina Schwarz
Stormy Weather by Paulette Jiles
Middle Passage by Charles Johnson
I thought that was a nice stack for the money!
Then I traipsed over to The Book Nook and found:
Redemption Falls by Joseph O'Connor
Song Yet Sung by James McBride
Once I arrived home I wasn't through with my shopping spree
and purchased three more books on Amazon.
The Feminine Mystique by Betty Friedan
Lady Macbeth by Susan Fraser King
The last book I purchased on Amazon was by Clea Simon entitled:
Mew is for Murder (Theda Krakow Mysteries, No. 1). Thanks to Literary Feline at Musings for a Bookish Kitty for getting me psyched about this series.
So, what do you think of my bibliophile shopping spree? Like a clothes horse in a dress shop I browsed and wandered through the store for that perfect fit. Who needs new clothes when you can have new books? I stared at covers, opened many and read a few opening paragraphs. I took my time, no reason to rush. Selecting s just right book is very special. I still have room for a few more pieces to complete my May collection don't you think? Any suggestions?
