I want to go to the library ASAP to return Nothing But the Truth (and a few white lies) and pick up Lisa Yee’s Millicent Min, Girl Genius. Sadly, the branch library by my house isn’t open on Sundays and the library downtown is open only exactly during the hours I’m at rehearsal tomorrow. What does this mean?
A trip to the bookstore, naturally.
My bookshelf is overflowing. I’ll take a picture sometime and show you. It’s a bit scary, actually. The shelves bow under the weight of all the books on them.
But as much good as I’ve heard about Lisa Yee, I am wary of buying an author’s books all untried. I only put $30/month in my budget for books, you see. Of late its been spent on “market research” – vampire romance, most recently. (There’s another genre I’m writing in but I already own so many examples of that I don’t need to buy any.)
So my book shopping list for tomorrow:
Clear Your Clutter with Feng Shui by Karen Kingston (I’ll admit this purchase is entirely inspired by Nothing But the Truth. I originally intended to pick this one up at the library, but the more I think about it, the more it seems like a reasonable book to own.)
Shrimp by Rachel Cohn (but not Cupcake because it’s not out in paperback)
I decided that since I have Gingerbread and won’t be parting with it in my book purge, Shrimp is a safe purchase.
The question is: Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan – library or bookstore? slayground? Anyone? Advice?
