It Happened on a Sunday

As y'all can see, I've made a few purchases recently. Some were premeditated. Inheritance and Reckoning for example. Others...just happened.

It always happens that way, without fail. I can't even tell you exactly how I ended up at BAM!, I just know one minute I was driving to get food and then I was standing in the YA section...

The next few minutes of that trip consisted of me staring aimlessly at book covers until I fixed upon the cover of The Scorpio Races. It jumped into my arms. Next came Dearly, Departed, and then with those two clutched tightly to my chest, I regained some sense and started to realize a purpose: I need books, and the more the merrier.

Faster than I can say "Christopher Paolini's Inheritance cycle" I had that stack of books and I was headed to the checkout counter before I lost all control. Six books and a pack of WTF sticky-notes later, and I'm finally back on the road to get food. Which was my original destination.

Anyway, with these new additions to my TBR pile, I'm set for reading my way straight through Christmas break with no breaks. That's the plan, at least. We'll see how much I get done. I'm hoping to read at least 30 books. That's the goal. In fact, it's going to be my resolution for this year. It's a little late, but you know what they say about those things. Better than never.

What books are y'all trying to read before New Year's? Hopefully we can keep each other accountable, because I have a TON to read. Until next time...attack that TBR pile!

    Sounds amazing to me. I would have ventured out to get food with you! I also love BAM. You know we're officially changing it from Books-a-Million to BAM? Crazy. I've always said "welcome to BAM." People think I'm speaking German. Cest la vie.

  2. Reckoning was amazing! That series blew me away.

  3. @Cassie: You would have Effin be your middle name. April Fool's issue, just saying. :D

    @Kels: I know! I LOVE Strange Angels and Lilith's writing style. It's just so fluid and kick-butt. Dru is an awesome MC. And I have a huge crush on Graves.

  4. Mmmmmmmnewbooks :) :)
    I want to read all of song of ice and fire and the malazan book of the fallen...*sigh* I have my work cut out!

  5. @Dafty: Thanks! You too! ;)

    @Lassie: Yes, new books good! Haha, hopefully you'll get a chance to read all of those! Good luck!

  6. We would never have money if I did this. Looks like you have a lot of good books to read.

  7. I have to say, NICE BG! :))

    And... wow. :)) I've been so busy I haven't been reading for awhile. Then Dad bought me this classic novel, I gobbled it for a night. *laughs* Happy reading, Aunt! Tell me 'bout Inheritance 'cause I'm about to read the first book. :))
