Here we go Again!
This time, because of the Stephen King book, I really wonder if I’m loosing it?! I don’t read Stephen King! (but I admit to having 11.22.63 by King, but only because it’s about the Kennedy assassination) So I don’t know why I took this book! I can admit my second choice makes me laugh too! I bought it because of the cover! Can you believe that it’s “book 2” and I don’t own book 1?!!! lol… More and more I just know that they are holding a room for me at the “funny farm”!!
Now.. Dragonsinger is a different story! I don’t happen to own Dragonsong, Dragonsinger or Dragondrums in hard back and this is hardback!! I squealed as I picked it up! But it’s not “perfect”.. the whole first chapter came out in one piece (not page by page). I think it can be glued back in, at least I hope so! Either way it goes in my Pern collection! I can’t say a whole lot for the cover…. I guess I am spoiled by Michael Whelan covers!
Having never seen the hardback of Dragonsinger before I thought her dedication was nice!
Days later I took books I had read to drop off of Friends of the Library… *huge sigh*
I’ve come to the conclusion that I’d dig through the garbage if I thought there were books in it! *groan* (Dropped off 3 and brought home 3!) Two of the books are over 500 pages.. can you hear me groaning?
Then in the mail a book came that I signed for a free copy of!..duh. As all this adds to my tbr pile I still hope the other “free book” comes which is the Diane Setterfield book!
If I thought a speed reading class would help I think I’d take it! But at my age “speed” is a word of the past!
I better go read a chapter or two from the book I am reading or I will never get to any of these!…
So… how grows your TBR pile?
