|My Book Haul From This Weekend|
The hubs took me book shopping this weekend 🙂
There are few things that make me as happy as a trip to a used bookstore. I feel like I’ve won the lottery or something every time I find a good deal, and let me tell you….I found good deals this weekend.
Now…I still buy new releases at our local indie because I like supporting the authors I get to know on Twitter & Facebook, but the odds that I will lay down serious dough for a Dan Brown novel, (Davinci Code, Angels & Demons) are slim. Why? Because he’s sold a gazillion books and watched them turn into movies.
I’d rather give my hard-earned money to a lesser known struggling or debut author. It just makes me feel good.
So does being surrounded by stacks of books 🙂
After bringing home another 24 titles, I think it’s safe to say that when our girls are grown and gone, someone’s bedroom will become a library.
After this trip I almost completed my Jennifer Crusie collection, picked up The Davinci Code & Angels & Demons (for 15 cents each, might I add), and I found a hardback copy of American Gods by Neil Gaiman that I’ve been eyeing for a while. I also snagged The Secret Life Of Bees, Wings, My Sister’s Keeper, The Time Traveler’s Wife, and my first Sherrilyn Kenyon book (she’s a fellow Nashvillian – had to support). On top of that I managed to find some books on the craft of writing that looked great and travel books that will help with the research on my WIP.
Are you a book addict? Have a “library” or an insane stack of books in your house? If so, please link to a pic 🙂 Tell me what your weakness is when it comes to book buying.
Oh!!! And I have a new blog schedule that begins THIS WEEK. I’ll be blogging here, at A Day In The Life Of An Aspiring Author, on MWF, and over at The Writer’s Resource Site on T/Th. I needed to do this in order to have more time to devote to my WIP.
