Recent Purchases

I love bookstores and went to two yesterday. First was The Tattered Cover, which is located in Denver. That was the planned stop after taking mom to the airport for her little Arizona trip. I had a list of books to look for but they didn't have most of them, including the one I've been waiting since summer for it to come out in paperback. So, after stepdad was measured in Centera for his tux (my stepsister is getting married in June in DC) I went over to the Barnes and Noble. Planned to get one book and ended up with two. They didn't have all the books I wanted either. That and at both places there were a few I want but don't want to buy in hardback, so I have to wait.

Books purchased at The Tattered Cover:


One of two found from my list.



Hardback (yes, I broke my rule) and signed copy.



Unplanned but looking forward to reading.



Non-YA and on my list of books to read so figured why not.


Books purchased at Barnes and Noble:
(Portion of the proceeds went to Hearts & Horses therapeutic riding center.)



The one I was waiting for since reading book 1. 




Urban Fantasy; of the four I looked for this is one of two I actually found.


6 books in total. Some were already on my to-read list and others are now on the list. Yay for more books!

I'm envious. I have three books I'm looking for next time I go to B&N. I wish I had an independent store close to me so I could support it with my business.

Oh Dawn, I have book-store envy. These titles look so good! Looking forward to some great reviews!

Nice list! I've been meaning to read The Replacement. I'm trying to finish Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly, and next is Anna and the French Kiss. :-)

I love Barnes and NOble, lol. I wish more books came out in Paperback the first run.

Thanks for commenting and being envious of the books I bought. lol

I have so many books to read, it's ridiculous, plus the list increases faster than I can get books read. I had so many I want to read but didn't buy, part of the reason is they were in hardback. I really want Delirium, for example, but it's in hardback.

Tara - I'm with you. Paperback first run would be great. I hate having to wait a year later. Even if it's just a couple months after, that would be better than a whole year. I finally got the sequel to The Forest of Hands and Teeth but waited because I wanted paperback.

I just finished The Forest of Hands and Teeth, which was awesome. Next on my list of purchases? Dead Tossed Waves, The Replacement and XVI. Can't wait!
