Purchased a new book on Friday. I couldn’t find it anywhere so I had to have Borders special order it for me, that’s the first time I’ve done it. I could have ordered it from Amazon but it would have been more expensive with the shipping because I always use a coupon when I buy from Borders. The book I purchased is a sci-fi book called River of Gods, it was written by Ian McDonald. It has gotten rave reviews, I am excited to get into it.
I also bought a book for my wife for Buy a Friend a Book week. It was a surprise for her, it’s always nice to surprise my wife with something. It was also a book she had never heard of but came highly recommended from people who love the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer and my wife loves those books. It is called A Great and Terrible Beauty and was written by Libba Bray. So I’m hoping she enjoys it. It was just as fun buying a book for her as it is buying one for me!
We had also posted a bunch of books on Ebay last weekend which did not end up selling so I am thinking of joining Bookmooch. I’ve been hearing so much about it and it sounds like a great idea. I’ve already got some ideas for books I’m hoping to mooch.
