Ooh how I love buying books! It's not very often that I can justify buying them, usually because it's between books and groceries and the food just has to win out, but when I can buy them, I love it!! I just feel good for days after! After my little shopping spree, I'm all stocked up for books to bring on my trip up to NY next month and then on my honeymoon. Yippee! Here's what I ended up with:
Using a fabulous B&N gift card that I received on my birthday...
Castles in the Sand by Sally John
The Potluck Club: Trouble's Brewing by Linda Evans Shepard
Coldwater Revival by Nancy Jo Jenkins
Always Green by Patti Hill
Three of those and the second book in a series, so I'm super excited to get to them. After all that B&N shopping on a gift card, I was able to make my own little purchase over at ChristianBook.com. There, I made off with:
Quilts from Heaven by Lucinda Seacrest McDowell
The Good Nearby by Nancy Moser
Scrap Everything by Leslie Gould
The Quilt of Hope by Mary Tatem
Quaker Summer by Lisa Samson
and a new bible cover! :-)
All of this shopping was very profitable for my Christian fiction shelves! All being rather lighthearted reading, since I will be on my honeymoon and all. No need to revert back to my love of tragic stories until the end of May! Next on my to-buy-list are preorders of both Luanne Rice and Charles Martin's new novels, both releasing in early summer and bound to be tearjerkers. Can't wait for those! Has anyone else bought anything great lately?
