Sunday Book Coveting - What to Buy!
Saturday is my birthday and I know I am getting gift cards for the bookstore. This means that I have been formulating my book purchases in my head for days now. They are coming from Chapters, a Canadian bookstore, which has the annoying policy of charging shipping fees for pre-ordered books regardless of how much money you spent. I wonder if Chapters reads blogs because if they do, I should point out that I am getting my gift cards for Christmas from AMAZON. Yes, you essentially lost my business, but whatever...
So, now you are going to be subjected to me posting about what I could wind up buying in the next month or so!
The only book I know for sure that I am getting is Going Bovine by Libba Bray. I forgot to preorder it! It is out now, but I am making myself wait for my birthday.
I also think I will probably get Dreams Underfoot by Charles de Lint. The library doesn't have and it is technically the starting point for the Newford series, so I should give it a try, right?
Then, there are two preorders: The Maze Runner by John Dashner and Peter & Max by Bill Willingham.
If I was really good, that would be my list! I imagine just those four books are going to go over my gift cards anyway... But, just out of curiousity... Any suggestions?
