Did some book shopping the other day, it was lovely. Spent about 45 min cruising around the big A's website finding what I wanted. Almost as nice as visiting a bookstore, though not nearly as nice as visiting a great bookstore.
That said....I got me some (more) BOOKS! I am so glad I finally decided that I was buying books this year, it has been so much more pleasant with good things to read.
Here's what I got, let me know what you think?
The Thing Around Your Neck. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
I Wish Someone Were Waiting for Me Somewhere. Anna Gavalda
Sula, Toni Morrison
Possession, A Romance, A.S. Byatt
Molly Fox's Birthday, Dierdre Madden
