A Bookish Day: New to the home…
But it’s not ALL my fault!
geez… I just got my tbr *down to* 124 and now I get to add six… I will never get it below 100!!!!
The first two books are “new” from Amazon. But, Lettseee if I can spread the blame around! … I can blame Seraphina on my son Chris :o) he told me, after he read it that: you would really like this Mama! (headbutt on desk) . It’s Fantasy.. it’s Dragons… it’s a book for Once Upon a Time *sigh*.
And I can blame A Natural History of Dragons on Ana! Wow! I finally get to blame Ana!!! lol. She mentioned this on her blog and anything concerning Dragons I check up on. (fatal error)
The rest of the books, Victoria’s Daughters, Before I go to Sleep, Others and Ripper Diary came for Friends of the Library to the grand total of 8 dollars for 4 books.
Here’s a picture of the covers. Unfortunately the Ripper Diary did not have a paper cover so it is just black. Actually that seems right for the content!
I don’t know who’s review I read about Before I go to Sleep but when the book was in front of me for 2.00 I read the inside cover and thought this is one for RIP! As for “Others” by James Herbert, I did read one of his other books and liked it and so here I was faced with a 1.00 book ..I knew that I was doomed to have a pile from Friends of the Library.
I spotted Victoria’s Daughters in their Biography section. Paperback, looking new.. I read the back of the book and it sounded interesting, as in did the Mitfords when I got their book not knowing a thing about them. That was book 3 from the used book store *sigh*. Lastly, and again in the Biography section, I see this plain black book… I stupidly pulled it out to see it was about Jack the Ripper. I read a Patricia Connelly book on him and found it quite good. (gruesome but good) I rolled my eyes and sighed and walked on…. with the book in my hand.
Will I never learn?
I finished my Bookish Day by getting an email from Carl with a link: I thought you should see this. Yeah right.. like it would be anything else but a book?! cha!
Possibly you can see 3 words in the link that might make me click on it! (possibly?!) Michael Whelan… dragon…and Anne McCaffrey. duh. Like, does anyone who knows me think I would NOT click this link?!
So before anyone else clicks it let me warn you…
yes, it’s a book.
yes, I did add it to my wish list,……
But it’s not coming out until August! Hello?! August?!! AAARRRGGGGhhhhhhh!
