Lawyer, mother, avid reader. Game host extraordinaire! Partner in crime to Obsidian Black Plague! My bookish weaknesses include classics, fantasy, YA, and agreeing to read more books than is even remotely possible.
Someone on my wordpress feed did a post that documented additions to their TBR pile for the week. I liked it, and have therefore copied it!
This was not a particularly lucrative book week. I didn't have a single pre-order that was released!
I did, however, go to Powell's Books in my home city. For those of you who aren't familiar with Powell's, well, you are missing out. It looks like this:
It requires a legend to get around:
I bought four books at Powell's, all used:
The Agatha Christie's I bought because my daughter is currently obsessed with Christie's mysteries. I have quite a substantial collection, but more is better, right?
I've only read one du Maurier, and am interested in reading more, and I recently read Pessl's newest book, The Night Film, and loved it. I've been wanting to read her debut novel, and Powell's had an inexpensive used copy.
I also snagged one KDD:
Susanna Kearsley is a favorite author, and this one was on sale for $1.99, so I added it to the TBR.
So, there you have it - only five new books this week! I've already read The Clocks by Christie. Don't hold your breath for a review, I still haven't decided if I'm going to post anything. Not her best, not her worst.
What about you? Anything really great released that I missed?
