This Week In Books Or I Went Back to Borders Ooops!


Monday:
One Lonely Degree by C. K. Kelly Martin

This book is going to rule, seriously it sounds so amazing. It came for review.

Tuesday:
Breathless by Lurlene McDaniel
If The Witness Lied by Caroline B. Cooney

These were a fun surprise! For review.

Wednesday:

Cathy's Key by Sean Stewart and Jordan Weisman

Completes my trio of Cathy books. To review.

Thursday:

Turning Tables by Heather and Rose MacDowell
A Northern Light by Jennifer Donnelly
Chuck Dugan is AWOL by Eric Chase Anderson

These came from the library sale. When I saw the Eric Chase Anderson book I starting freaking out. He's the brother of my favorite director Wes Anderson. He's done all the illustrations for the Criterion Collection packaging for the movies and also all the awesome art in the Royal Tenenbaums. I had completely forgotten he had written a book so I was SO happy to see it!

Dork Diaires: Tales from a not so fabulous life by Rachel Renee Russell


Ok, I just had to share a picture with you of what came with Dork Diaries. It's "Nikki's Purse", the main character's purse! It sounds like most of the contents relate directly to the story. You better believe I will have this next to me when I'm reading the book! What a fun marketing idea!

Friday:
nothing

Saturday:

My Most Excellent Year by Steve Kluger
The Learners Chip Kidd
The Used World by Haven Kimmel

I went back to Borders....

  7. I love how much effort you put into stimulating the economy!

    Do you remember everything you have or do you sometimes buy a book and then remember you already have it? Also, I don't know if I've asked you this before, but do you keep any kind of list or record of what you have, because if you do I'd love to see it!

  11. That purse is cool! Did you buy that or did it come for review? I can't imagine it would sell with the book - does it? Is it all kinds of expensive?
