This Week In Books Or Oooh I Found Some Room In My Closet (For Books!)

Monday: The Elite arrives, I won it from the Book Vault's Contest!

Tuesday: My first half day off of work. I get home and am greeted by Swimming With Strangers. Head off to the dentist. During my cleaning I think about going to Borders because it's right across the street. I figure I'll stay away. Then I find out I have two cavities! So I go to Borders and find out they are having a 3.99 Summer Clearance Sale (never seen one of these before)
So I pick up:
It's Not About the Accent
Love From London
The Glass Castle
The Romance Reader's Book Club
Tender Is the Night
Geek High
all for the price of one new hardcover book ( I don't even really care for hardcovers!)
I come home from my appointment feeling a little guilty (though I had just this past weekend made a bunch of room in my closet for books) only to find out Schooled had arrived while I was out!

Wednesday: Months and Seasons arrives from author Chris Meeks.

Thursday: Homegirl arrives from a fellow LibraryThing member who saw my mention of looking for a copy on the message boards and reserved it for me on Bookmooch! Thank you!
American Wife also arrived from a fellow LibraryThing member who saw my mention of wondering if the ARC I requested would ever arrive. She offered to send me her extra copy, how sweet Thank you!

Friday: Aberrations arrived from author Penelope Przekop who I had a nice conversation with earlier this week :)

Saturday: Creepers arrived after only requesting it the beginning of this week. Also the Penguin Classic, A Mixture of Frailties arrived.

Since I have written this post early in the day who knows what else will happen this afternoon. My sister has decided we should go to Borders and I will not say no to that!

Not surprisingly at Borders I got two books. On clearance, Unhooked and not on clearance but about the coolest sounding book of all time The Mysterious Benedict Society. Has anyone read this, it sounds amazing!


  1. sounds like a busy week! I love going to Borders.

  2. Sounds like you had a great week with books arriving.

    I have both Swimming With Strangers and American Wife on my TBR list. I read Aberrations and thought it was a good one.

    I read CREEPERS when it first came out. It was my intro to the author. I had THE GLASS CASTLE checked out, but lost the mood and returned it back to the library. Maybe later.

    Sounds like you have a great week of books!

  4. Naida- Borders=heaven :)

    Cheryl- I really like how a lot of us get to read the same books. It's nice to have other people to discuss them with :)

    J. Kaye- Did you like Creepers? It sounded like it would be kind of creepy in a fun way!

    Alea ~ I did and there is a "but" to! I liked his idea, but thought some parts weren't believable such as when they were in the house with the bad guys. That was all off. I think it was well worth the read and if there was a book III, I'd read it as well.

  6. J. Kaye- I think we may be thinking of two different Creepers. I think the one I got was written by a woman and I'm not sure if it's part of a series. It's a young adult book. Hehe. What's the Creepers you read about?

    Creepers: David Morrell

    The key word for me should have been "classic." :)

  8. J Kaye- LOL! I'll let you know how this Creepers is!
