Someday I want to have enough money so I can build a library in my house, one as big or bigger than my living room, lined with books on every wall!
This week I went on a book buying binge. First it started with buying Switched, Torn, and Ascend by Amanda Hocking at my local Walmart. I originally bought all three as kindle e-books before they were traditionally published, but I enjoyed them enough that I wanted the printed versions. Not to mention that I really wanted to read the bonus stories. In the last 24 hours I re-read Ascend and it was just as satisfying a read this time around as it was the first, even better with the awesome bonus story at the end.
Then the reading-addiction flared up again on Monday when my father and I stopped a discounted book section of Walmart (yes, I do almost all my shopping there) and I couldn't resist the sales! I ended up buying six books, including:
'Marlfox' by Brian Jacques
'Love Bites' by Ellen Schreiber
'Flirt' by Laurell K. Hamilton
'Rude Awakenings of a Jane Austen Addict' by Laurie Viera Rigler
'Me, Myself, and Why?' by MaryJanice Davidson
and 'Dark and Stormy Knights' which is a collection of stories by several authors.
With the exception of Brian Jacques, a favorite author of my childhood, I've not read anything by, or heard anything about, any of these authors. It will be interesting to see what they write like. If I like one enough, I might even do a review of it.
