During my lunch hour today, I went to my favorite little UBS. I am SO excited about my favorite little UBS because they are moving to a big, huge, gimongous new building at the end of the month!!! YAY, more room for books!
Anyway, I got some realllly good looking books today:
- Maus I
- Maus II
- The Little Friend by Donna Tartt
- Jack of Kerowen by Charles de Lint
- The Secret History of the Pink Carnation
Maus, I wasn't too sure of, but I remembered that (I think) Andi liked it, so I peeked at the first few pages. Before I knew it I had read about 10 so I figured instead of staying there and reading it in the aisle, I'd take it on home. They had both I and II so I got them both. I know Andi and Amanda liked Donna Tartt's Secret History and since The Little Friend was only $4.50 in an excellent hardback (doesn't matter though, as I had over $100 in credit, but still!) I snapped it up. It's freaking huge!! I have liked all of de Lint's stuff I've read so I got this one, a retelling of Jack and the Beanstalk. And the Pink Carnation looks like a good historical/mystery/something-or-other book.
And I feel a little better now, especially thanks to your sweet comments. At least the trying part is fun
