That's 10 books by the end of the month! Yikes!
Most of them I can renew, but some of them like the Sookie Stackhouse books and the Madeleine Wickham book cannot be renewed because other people have placed holds on them.
On the flipside, I'm getting really good at resisting buying books. I'm only purchasing books if I have a coupon. Which if you're a Borders fan, they almost always have a 40% coupon out and it's just too good to pass up! This past weekend I used my 40% coupon on Outlander by Diana Gabaldon which was recommended by Amber awhile back! I got a paperback copy for only $4.79 plus tax! What a steal! Maybe I will get around to reading it in, uh... December?! :)
Last night I finished up Twenties Girl by Sophie Kinsella and I ADORED it! So much better than I thought it would be! If you haven't read it, I think it might be worth it to buy. I'm going to wait for it come out in paperback next year to buy it, because by then I will probably want to read it again!
Good night all! I'm off to get started on book five of the Sookie Stackhouse series, Dead as a Doornail!
