Shopping Spree!





Woo hoo! Look at all those beautiful books! I took my eleven-year-old daughter on a shopping spree to Barnes & Noble yesterday, and we both came away with full shopping bags. Some of these were suggestions you guys gave me a few posts ago, so thanks again for the wonderful recommendations! I'm excited to get started, but right now I'm beta reading a fantastic MG novel written by one of my uber awesome critique partners, so these beauties will have to wait a little while longer. :)

If you missed my interview with author Cindy Borgne, click here for your chance to win a copy of her sci fi novel, Vallar.

And click here to read Carolina Valdez Miller's review of Possession by Elana Johnson and enter her giveaway for a signed ARC.

So, have you taken any shopping sprees lately? What did you buy?

Yup, but instead of Barnes and Nobles ( not a lack of my appreciation for books) Costco makes me nuts.

There's nothing like a trip to the bookstore with the kids. One of my favorite things to do! Enjoy your new books!

I bought a bag of cement, some builders sand, a garden pond and an electric pump. Now I have to fit it all together.

Lynn said...

How fun! I've restricted myself to not buying anymore books until my TBR pile is read. But I did recently purchase my first e-book, and writing craft book.

I'm so jealous of overseas bookstores...ours are RIDICULOUSLY overpriced. I've been buying all my stuff from the gloriously wonderful Book Depository lately :D

Sharon K. Mayhew said...

I'm a bit jealous...You've got some great books there. I've only read Liar Society out of all of those. I want to read Witch & Wizard.

Lydia K said...

Oh, nice! I'm going to read Carolina's review now. Thanks for posting that!

I have been on a shopping spree, but this trip was for summer clothes, not books :/

Hopefully next trip will be more literary ...

No sprees for me lately, but I love a good book spree!

Deniz Bevan said...

Ooh! I love book buying sprees :-) If only my TBR pile wasn't so high...

Tracy said...

Ahhh, you can never have enough books, I say! I really like James Ptterson :) My last shopping spree was when I went scrapbooking and well, it's shameful! Oh well...you only live once I say!

Carolina Valdez Miller said...

Wow, now that's the best kind of shopping spree! Awesome books.

Thanks so much for the mention!

Fun shopping spree! I enjoyed The Maze Runner. I still have to buy The Liar Society.

Today, I ordered two copies of 100 Stories for Queensland: one for me and one for my mother. I'm trying to refrain from buying anything else until I attend the conference next weekend.

The Happy Whisk said...

Great fun. Enjoy enjoy. I just bought two new cavity cake pans to play with. Going to make doggy treats and husband treats. Not at the same time, but using the same pan.

Happy Day and Happy Reading :-)

Nas Dean said...

Wow! Definitely my idea of a shopping spree!

Enjoy and have a Happy Mother's Day!

I buy so many books that I lose track.

This is a reminder that I need to read the rest of the Gone series. I only read the first book.
