Manic Monday

Who likes Mondays?
In a strange world, sometimes, I do. Mondays mean the start of the week.... the day before some new book releases- sometimes books that I've been anticipating... and usually I do my book shopping on the weekends, so a Monday sometimes mean getting to pick up one of my new books to start "devouring".

I did go do some book shopping this past weekend. It was lovely. Walking into any bookstore usually is something I enjoy doing. I love the smell of books, new or old. And the quiet hum of a bookstore is inviting and relaxing. It takes all the previous weeks' stresses away within a matter of minutes as I slowly walk down each aisle to browse.

My frequently visited bookstore is Books-A-Million, and it's about a forty-five minute drive from where I live. That's because I live out in the middle of nowhere. LoL. There's a Hastings about five minutes from that store as well that I go to sometimes, too. Most of the time, due to recent rise in gas prices, I'm ordering online, though. That's also where I'm finding my best bargains, too. Since I have such a hardcore book-buying addiction (Sorry, libraries, I don't rent, I buy), I have to look for the best deals I can get so as not to go into too much debt. Haha.

Anyways, I bought a few books and I'm looking forward to reading them.

Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoyvesky (to go for my Classics Challenge)
Angelology by Danielle Trussoni
The Tempest by William Shakespeare- (bought to go for my Shakespeare Challenge, which will be a re-read, but has been years since I've read it. I also already own this one, but had to buy another edition because the copy I own is in a special Collector's Edition that includes ALL of Shakespeare's works. Very difficult to read out of that huge volume. I've bought several "double" editions of other works in order to read and enjoy, so that the Collector's Edition is just for show on the shelf. :P I told you, I'm a Shakespeare dork/fangirl.)

Later this week, I plan to buy "My Booky Wook" by Russell Brand. I'm a huge fan and have been anxious to read his autobiography.


Upcoming book releases for this week (March 29th):

Lover Unleashed by J.R. Ward
Sweet Valley Confidential: Ten Years Later by Francine Pascal
Come To The Edge: A Memoir by Christina Haag (The love story of JFK Jr. and Christina Haag)
Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog Book by Joss Whedon
