I had a day off today, and spent hours looking at books. I must be losing my touch, I put almost all of them back.
I didn't by the big butter cookbook. It had some pretty awesome recipes, but, I don't really cook that much. I wish that I had some of the money that I spent on cookbooks that I have given away. I'm going to try to see if the library has it. Something positive for my tax dollar. The only tax levy that I ever vote yes for.
First off, I went to JoAnn's. I had a coupon, and I once in a while try not to let them go to waste. I looked at lots of books, but I ended up getting this one.
SMITTEN BLOG DESIGNS for a way to get a new look for your blog. I don't know much about how it works because I haven't explored it at all.
After I left JoAnn's I went to Borders. I had a coupon, and $5.00 of Borders Bucks. I have picked up this book dozens of times
I don't know why I have never bought this book. I should have it in my library I guess. I really like it. But I put it back. The book is $30. and my coupon was only 33% and I don't think I could combine the coupon with the Borders Bucks. So put the book back, and I bought a coffee and a cookie at the cafe (free).
Somewhere I read about a book that is coming out this month called MOCKINGJAY . Turns out it is the last book in a trilogy the first being THE HUNGER GAMES and the second installment CATCHING FIRE
My library offers digital downloads of audio books, and had both of the first two. I listened to both of them and I only have a couple of weeks to find out how it all ends. These books are geared to young people, around teenage, but like the Harry Potter books, these are a fun read for adults to. The best part about never hearing of them is that I didn't have to wait for years between books. And since there are only three books to this series, the suspense will be over soon. A strong female character against an oppressive government. What more can I ask for?
