An Example of My Addiction to Books

First off, the giveaway winner will be drawn for and announced tonight or tomorrow – I’m on my way to a minor league baseball game, and have a blog design to work on, so it will realistically be drawn for tomorrow. πŸ˜€

I wanted to share with you all how my latest trip to the library went (yesterday). I’m pretty sure that if they don’t have a fine for getting too many books out at once, then they may have to create one with me around.
It was just one of those days when I found everything that I wanted to read, and some new books I hadn’t read by favorite authors. In no particular order:

Inkheart ~ Cornelia Funke
Inkspell ~ Cornelia Funke
The Boggart and the Monster ~ Susan Cooper
The Children of Hurin ~ J.R.R. Tolkien
Angels in the Snow ~ Melody Carlson
Seaward ~ Susan Cooper
The Magician’s Boy ~ Susan Cooper
The Green Boy ~ Susan Cooper
The Peoples of Middle Earth, Volume XII ~ J.R.R. Tolkien


Yes, I did clean the library out of all the Susan Cooper novels that I haven’t read. Did you notice? The librarian did – I think she thought I was crazy – walking around carrying an entire armful of volumes (yes, most of them are volume-sized).
Plus, I bought/acquired several other books recently that are still on my “to read” list (which got extremely long yesterday).
Just Ella ~ Margaret Peterson Haddix
Back Home Again ~ Melody Carlson
Redwall ~ Brian Jacques (and two other books in the same series that I can’t remember the titles of)


What are you reading?

    I read Inkheart a few weeks ago and it is a great book! I also watched the movie and it was good, too. I read The Hobbit, but I haven't read any other J.R.R. Tolkien books, though. I really like Ella Enchanted… have you read The Two Princesses of Bamarre? It's good too.Abby πŸ˜€

  2. I'm reading Rogue's Home, the second Knight and Rogue novel from Hillary Bell. It is so good!

    The Two Princesses of Bamarre was written by Gail Carson Levine as well… she writes good stories!Abby πŸ˜€

  4. Ooh, sounds like you have some fun stuff picked out! I recently finished the Ink trilogy on a (long) trip… normally I don't go for that type of fantasy, but it was actually quite good, IMO. The Children of Hurin is so good, but so sad. I almost cried at the end, and I don't cry easily. Just so you know, lol. As for what I'm reading right now… technically I'm between books. =P I just finished Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card and loved it (except it has some pretty unnecessary language).

    Currently, I'm reading a book for the summer class I'm in – a genetics class – called "Next" by Michael Crichton. It's not…the most appropriate book, but I need to read it for class, and it is interesting, if you like biology and genetics. lol Some parts are controversial, but its really interesting. πŸ™‚
