Saturday has been pretty good to me; the books just keep coming. And I had a good swing this go-'round. First, and finally, I've found a copy of the first book in Margaret Maron's Deborah Knott mystery series, Bootlegger's Daughter. A really, really pleasant surprise. Once bought, I turned around and found a $1 copy of the first book in Jacqueline Winspear's Maisie Dobbs series, Maisie Dobbs. Trepidation is running rampant after my horror experience with Susan Elia MacNeal's Mr. Churchill's Secretary. Though not the same, the two series have something in common. A "common" I dare not get into to save any possible jinxing of Winspear's series.
And check this out. 14 pieces of scrapbook paper for $2 at Michael's. So much a boy can do with this!
Got rid of a lot, and brought plenty back in. Oh course, through store credits and bargain-area shopping. Kind of a strange mix–but not really. The Susan Wittig Albert books were simple enough to pick up. Toni Braxton memoir I found tucked in a low shelf in a bookstore bargain section for $5. I went ahead and grabbed Laurell K Hamilton's A Shiver of Light, because I'm compulsive when it comes to completing series. Even those I've grown to dislike. And, because I want more fantasy in my life, I decided to go back to my initiation into fantasy via a T. A Barron novel.
Apprentice in Death came out on September 6th. I moved heavy and earth to get to it. (Currently reading it. This is only the dust-jacket.) Salvage the Bones and Speaking from Among the Bones I got for $2.50 apiece. Both easily crossed off that Amazon wishlist.
Now. Will this book craving stop?
