Books bought from Library today

Books bought from Library today

I usually can find one good book on the sale shelf at any given time, but today I found three. Total cost $1.50.

My daughter and I went to the book store on Saturday. I only purchased one "Witch & Wizard" by Patterson. She purchased three or four. And along with the five other books she got on Christmas, she is well on her way to building her library. Now if I could just get her to do some solitary reading. She wants to read with me. That's fine and dandy, but I often don't read at home during the week unless it is right before bed. I tell her she can read by herslef, it is OK, it is actually fun, the other person shouldn't be a factor. *sigh*

I am currently reading "Angel Time" by Anne Rice. I've never been into her vampire books, but I am really liking her Christian books. I'm happy she is writing these now, but I'm sure her vampire fans are not too pleased.

I have so many books waiting, one that I cannot wait to get to is "The Mists of Avalon". I've never read it, seen the movie though. I downloaded it to my Kindle, but I have to read "Angel Time" first as it is a 2 week loan from the library, then I have to read another book from Thomas Nelson that requires a review, and THEN I'll get to "Avalon".

So the books I got today are way down on the list. Well maybe not "Atonment" as I can read that for my Historical Fiction Challenge for 2010.

77 books completed so far, will get to 78 for sure, I have 3 more days, hey I might even make 79.

Anne Rice is my favorite author. I have Angel Time and plan to read it in the new year. While I am saddened that she is no longer writing the vampire novels, I understand her reasons for ending the Chronicles. I still have not finished reading the vampire books and I've actually recently went back to the beginning and have been listening to them on audio. I just finished The Vampire Lestat before is Queen of the Damned (my fourth time reading it!).

I hope you like Mists of is one of my favorite books. It is really good, imo =o)

I'm impressed with the amount of books you read this year. I'm no where near that. 2009 was not a good year for me in reading =o(

Happy Reading!

Hey, please let me know what you think of "Witch and Wizard" I wanted to read it but it got terrible reviews! So I was scared away.

I really enjoyed Mists of Avalon, but it is an epic and requires a commitment!

I am looking forward to your review of the Anne Rice book.
