New books


Ok there are a few things that set my heart a flutter .. New Handbags .... New Shoes ... and New books ....

I went armed with a list ... And I have to admit it was quite a long list of new books I would like ... I got a few new books for the kids to read and a few for myself ...

It was quite funny I thought it would be easier to just go up to the sales assistant than me wandering around the book store ( And to be honest I had my hubby with me at the time and so time is short ... I could happily spend a whole day looking for books where on the other hand my Hubby was getting abit bored ... As he had looked at all the books in the specialist end ...) Armed with my list I started to go through novels .... Which the generally response was ... We don't have it here but we could order it ... By about the 20th book ... Yes the 20th I was about to give up when the sales assisted started to jump up and down and flap her arms around screaming ...
YES we have this one
... and then proceeded to run .... Yes ... Run to the recover the book ... It was quite funny ... Out of 35 books on my list ... I got wait for it ... 4 books ... I was abit disappointed but I think my hubby was relieved that are bank account will not be hit .... lol ...

I proceeded to the children's end and managed to pick up some books for the kids ... All in all it was a good wee day and I picked up some really good books ... But I am going to have to order in the rest .... :(

I could stay in a bookstore for hours! My hubby usually ends up taking the kids to find an electronic something or other store to go into while I look for books... I really could not be bored in a bookstore! How could anyone? Honestly?:) I love Princess Academy and Pride and Prejudice! I am reading Little Women right now... Ok, long post! Sorry!:)

These are all classics!! I read Rebecca when I was in high school, and I haven't read it since, so thanks for the reminder....I think that was the first "classic" I ever read and truly loved!

I counted more than four books in that pile....I think that bank account was hit just a little bit. Happy reading - i'm sure you'll have this lot finished in now time.
