A Bookish Day!

Today turned into a book day!

From the library I got:

I Was a Rat by Philip Pullman - Point for Nymeth!
The Polysyllabic Spree by Nick Hornby - FINALLY! I have been waiting so long for this book I can't remember who to blame... I had just decided to buy it, too!
The Yankee Years by Joe Torre & Tom Verducci - Curiousity... I am not a Yankees fan, but I love baseball! Bet you didn't know that!

On Tuesday I picked up:

The Garden of Eve by K.L. Going - Point for Debi, who hasn't even read it yet! (But, she should! I felt like I had read it before, but in any case, I really liked it!)

Then, in the mail I got:

The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan - No points because when I ordered this, it was not even out yet... I think it got lost in the mail!
Burnt Shadows by Kamila Shamsie

And, then, I actually bought a book!
Fragile Eternity by Melissa Marr - It is Heather's fault that I bought it instead of waiting for it to come in at the library!


  1. Sweet! I really liked The Forest of Hands and Teeth. ♥

  2. Those kind of days are wonderful! The only problem is choosing which book to start first :0) Have fun reading!!

  3. Renay: Yes, I saw you mention that on Twitter! I am looking forward to it!

    Obsessed Reader: YES! That's exactly my problem!

  4. I like how you're addressing Dewey in these. It's a sweet tribute.

  5. They all sound good!! I just finished Wicked Lovely so I'm on to Ink Exchange next!! Loved the Spree!! It added to my TBR big time!

  6. Ohmigosh, I did not know that you've never read Pratchett! I would pick up Mort or Guards! Guards! first. Those are quality :-) But most of them are! Let me know if you can fit it into your schedule :-)

  7. 3M: Thanks! I am glad you enjoy it.

    Staci: I am looking forward to the Spree! I hope you enjoy Ink Exchange.

    Aarti: I have read a few Pratchett's, but yes, I need to read more!

  8. Glad you finally got Spree! My wife came home with Housekeeping vs. The Dirt from her interlibrary loan, so I'll get to read some, or all, of it for the 24 hour readathon this weekend, yay!!!

  9. My favourite kind of day! You got some great ones.

  10. I have Fragile Eternity. But I'm trying to decide if I need to read Ink Exchange first. What do you think?

  11. we are a sad lot when we want a certain book.. can we wait for it to come to the library Can we wait for its release? No..we ask for an ARC. Can we wait and try to win a copy on line? No.. we go and buy the book!

  12. I just got The Forest of Hands and Teeth on Thurs. too! Looking forward to it.

  13. The Garden of Eve looks so good...and it looks like a fast read. Which means it would make a good book for read-a-thon, huh? Hope I can get to it! And I really, really hope you decide to join in!!!

  14. Carl: I imagine I will be requesting the second book very soon! It takes so long to come in, though...

    Nymeth: Thanks! I look forward to all of them!

    Stephanie: I am not sure... I haven't read Fragile Eternity yet. I'll try to read it this weekend and get back to you if you want!

    DesLily: lol. So true!

    Nicola: Yes, it looks really good!

    Debi: It is a nice, fast read! I hope you get to it on Saturday, too!

  15. Cheers for the cheerleader! I 've been seeing you everywhere. :)

  16. Care: aw, thanks! I did my best to cheer twice for mostly everyone!

  17. Are you reading too?? Thanks so much for cheering us on!! It means a TON!

  18. Bethany: Nah, not reading too, just commenting! It's been fun, though!
