well since you all think this is nothing to be ashamed of, I’m going to brag:
I almost did this post in the format of a shoplifting blog and then I thought better of it so. Obviously, all of my books are paid for. Legally. Proudly. I love my books. Take a look!
Starting small: some childhood favorites (except the middle one, which is just by a children’s author I adore)
Some great adventuring and swashbuckling - adding to and finishing up a couple favorite series:
Brian Jacques. Always.
The Invention of Hugo Cabret and Wonder Struck. ^_^
I now own the entire Squire’s Tale series! *squee* If you have never read these books, please don’t let the awful cover art fool you. They. Are. Amazing. I flippin love these Arthurian retellings. (Also, please do not confuse Gerald Morris with Gilbert Morris. Gerald’s writing is better. Just my two cents.)
Christian Fiction of the type that is actually worth reading: The Warden and the Wolf King is a gift for a friend, since I already own the whole series myself. XD I still do have a soft spot for Donita K Paul. And Andrew Klavan is phenomenal. Crazy Dangerous is a little freaky for my tastes, but the ending is excellent.
Aaaaaaaaaand, saving the best for last!
NOT ONE BUT TWO BRANDON SANDERSON NOVELS!!! My sister found Firefight for me, she already owns a copy. ^_^ *squee*
That’s it for the books. I have some other non-book finds too. I’ll brag about them in another post. But here’s the whole haul:
Cost to moi? About $50. The two Brandon Sanderson novels alone would be that much new. Score!
