I just love walking into a bookstore or a library and just seeing all those rows and rows of lovely books just waiting to be discovered. Half the fun is simply looking at the books, even if you end up putting them back on the shelf. I did come out with a bagful of books and only spent $30, so I feel the outing was quite the success. There were some titles that I had read before, as well as one or two that I hadn't.
I picked up a beautiful hardcover copy of Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None, my all time favorite Christie novel. I also found a small treasure titled Lives of the Saints, complete with a few illustrations. Then I got Tolkien's The Children of Hurin, which I have read, and Dorothy Sayer's Gaudy Night, which I have not. I looked for The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins since I've now checked it out of the library three times and never gotten around to reading it but couldn't find it, so instead I bought The Moonstone, by the same author. I did pick up one more book... but that is filed under SPOILERS to a certain someone and I cannot reveal the title.
So that was our adventure... and I really need to work on figuring out how to write up better concluding paragraphs for "hey, I went and did this!" type of blog posts. Until I do... yep. I'm done with this. I'm going to go read a book now.
