Book Hunting

And here is what I caught:

Because I like dirty vampire books.

Which I really wanted but I'm kinda disappointed that it was a different cover- yes I am that shallow.

Recommended by the super cool book chick that works at the local B&N who suggested the Mortal Instruments series and hated Breaking Dawn.

There is a little paperback buy/trade store 45 minutes from me that I affectionately like to call "The Crazy Bookstore." It's packed, floor to ceiling with paperbacks- in boxes, in bags, on shelf after endless shelf and it's all organized in some strange system that I could never begin to grasp. I love this store. I can hand my to-read list to the lady and she will return in seconds with any cheap, well loved copies of my books as well as recommendations for others. She can tell you off the top of her head anything an author has ever written, new and old. On top of all that she has half a dozen cats running around the shop. Books and cats. Can't beat that. Thank you Crazy Bookstore lady for these finds.

I am also 'that' shallow, I bought the whole series for the cover LOL. Unfortunately I really only loved book no. 2.

Hmmmm....maybe it'll be better with a different cover? Maybe? I'm desperate for another book to love since City of Glass dumped me. I shouldn't be reading anything until I recover from my Mortal Instruments addiction. First I need to get a plant, keep it alive for a year.....

I am a total JR Ward junkie..can't wait to see what you think of Dark Lover.

I couldn't even finish Poison Study. Just boring (but I know lots of peeps that liked it!)

I love bookstores like that..I have a used bookstore near me that this little old man runs.Books are just stacked everywhere. I love it. I could spend every day there. I want to buy it if he ever retires. (I swear he is at least 85 yrs old) My husband doesn't know that yet:)

I think you should tell your husband to consider how much money you'd save on books by owning your own bookstore. Kind of like when you buy those $300 shoes on SALE you've acutally saved money.

lol...exactly. I will own it in my dreams:)

I am a JR Ward FANATIC! The Black Dagger Brotherhood is my number 1 series. It has romance, battles, war, vampires, hot men, a fricking good plot, and raw amazing characters, what more can a girl ask for?

Ms. Cullen- Nothing! If you are asking for anything more than hawt vampires you're just GREEDY. I can't wait to start it!
