I went book shopping...


On my day off I went to Chaucer's, my favorite local independent bookstore. Officially I was buying books for my school library (Color Purple, Bluest Eye, I Know Why the Caged Bird SingsBean Trees, Red Pyramid, and Drought), but I couldn't help myself and bought three books for me as well:

 Recommended by Swapna at S. Krishna Books

 I found out about this one from the Women for Women International site (it's a group to which I donate)

 Recommended by Aths at Reading on a Rainy Day

Yay! So glad to see Moloka'i there! I hope you enjoy it!

I need to check out the other two books. Delhi is really looking interesting to me!

I think Moloka'i is a great book, but I am not as impressed with A Thousand Sisters.

I'm glad you mentioned your independent bookstore. We need more of them, but this economy makes it hard for them to survive.

Sniffly--Don't even get me started with shoes and purses! :-)

Aths--My problem is that I need summer vacation to happen now so that I can read all these wonderful books that are on my TBR shelves! Work and life just seem to get in the way of my reading...

Bonnie--Chaucer's seems to be doing well. No matter when I go in it's full of people buying books. Bummer you didn't love A Thousand Sisters, let's hope I enjoy it

Oh I've been wanting to read Delhi and Molokai - hope you like them!

Beth said...

Buying books is like Christmas Day every time!

Amused--My problem is that I have too many books that I want to read immediately and there just isn't enough time. It does make me happy that you've heard good things about these two books as well

Beth--It does feel like Christmas when I buy books, I am so glad that I'm not the only one!
