No books in my mailbox this week, but I came across a copy of Effigy by Alissa York on sale at Chapters and had to snatch it up!
I also blame Cindy and Jen for inciting me to buy more books over the weekend. (I first read about Jen’s “No BEA? Books Anyway!” post on Cindy’s blog, Cindy’s Love of Books.) Since I missed both BEA and the Twitter pity party organized by Rebecca at The Book Lady’s Blog, this was the perfect excuse to head out in the rain yesterday to my local secondhand bookstore...
I was very happy to find copies of Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen and Keeping Watch by Laurie R. King for only $1.25 for both books!
I also bought two books I already own, which I will be giving away in a “Pay It Forward” giveaway sometime soon: The Pilot’s Wife by Anita Shreve and Vinegar Hill by A. Manette Ansay. (I only just noticed that they are both Oprah’s Book Club picks. I know some folks shy away from Oprah’s picks, but I thought they were both really good books!)
