|That's not my normal bedspread there, actually it is a quilt my grandmother made me when I was younger. I'm just using it until my other one is out of the wash.|
It's a known fact that I am a lover of books, okay...more of a psychotic, obsessive; over protective lover of books.
My holy land is Barnes Noble, but I will settle for a good bookstore with helpful service! Recently, however, I was able to make a pilgrimage to my holy land, and needless to say, I went bonkers!
I abandoned all notions of not buying any new books--even though my bookshelf is already overstuffed as it is--and used up all but five dollars of my hard earned money to purchase several of the above.
My finds at Barnes and Noble are: Ender's Game and The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, Official Movie Guide. This in and of itself was a rare find! The original asking price was fifteen dollars but I snagged it for five! Big change there! I was extremely excited, and it was only my first find of the day! I also got a brand new book bag with the cover of To Kill a Mockingbird on it as well as something that will make all Harry Potter fans scream. I bought a golden snitch! Afraid I don't have pictures of it now, but I bought one and it's actually the correct size...I was surprised!
Anyway, the other books came from a montage of different sources. City of Ashes is the second book in the Mortal Instruments Series and is a library book that I'm nearly done with. The last two Harry Potter books came from a used bookstore along with Beautiful Darkness, the second book in the Beautiful Creatures Series, and The Great Gatsby (which I have finished). The Harbinger is on lone from my mom, though just between us I'm going to try and keep it! Heheheheh.
My poor bookshelf is really over burdened now, but it will (hopefully) survive. After all, with a new bookstore only fifteen minutes from my house, it will probably have a lot more weight added to it as the weeks go by!
I'm hoping to do some more reviews based off of these books in the coming weeks. Also, I'm looking for suggestions as to book series. Usually, I'm very picky about what books I read and don't buy or rent a book unless a friend recommended it, I don't like wasting my time or money on lousy books. So if you have a series you think is good, let me know! Like I said, I'm open to a few pointers! :D
Thanks for reading.
