Delightful kids book about the British library. I want to go there . Book is easy to read and very well illustrated. I love it. Was being discarded by our library .
It's been too long since I did a nice splurge at the bookstore.
I can never have too many Star Trek novels, and All of the Marvels is something I've been very eager to read. I read Bad Days in History a couple of years ago, I didn't know there was a sequel.
Nothing nicer, after a hard day at work, to come home to a little bookmail. I'm looking forward to reading the next book in Ann Leckie's series. I'm a bit bummed about the James Blish book. Someone tried to remove the price sticker, and did a piss poor job of it. I'll have to try some glue gone to salvage the cover.
Do I need more books? Nope. Did I get more anyway?
YEP. Happy birthday to me 😂😂😂 y‘all, whoever mentioned PangoBooks is my hero. I got all of these plus she threw in a free ARC - for $25.00!! And these are all like new condition. #bookhaul 😂🤷♀️
I don't know if it was the heat, but my phone connection has been down all day and I couldn't post on Litsy.
Anyway, I grabbed these books at Goodwill today when I ventured out into the heat. I'm kind of annoyed at Goodwill. For awhile they were putting price stickers on the spines or on the back cover, but now they've gone back to putting them on the front, and they're a bitch to get off without messing up the cover. 😡😡😡
It feels like forever since I made a trip to the used book store. Didn't find much of interest, I was trying to avoid books that were parts of series (gets harder and harder every day).
Come join us for round 15. I signed up for two groups Group B (BOTM backlog) and Group M (Cozy mystery). Still two slots available for each. And if you don‘t fancy those there‘s lots of variety or start your own group.
See @suvata for signup link.
I went to the local library book sale, but sadly not much of interest, lots of romance novels, Clive Cussler, James Patterson and Dick Francis novels. I found a couple of interesting things so no trip is a waste.
New #bookmail from MySciFiClub. I'm glad they're both stand alone stories, I have too many series going now to start more. I've only read Sandman Slim by Kadrey, and I didn't care for it, but this sound interesting. As for the other book, I've not read anything by Guy Gavriel Kay, but I've seen lots of good reviews for him on Litsy & Goodreads.
Happy world book day!!
Time for some new books since I finished, for now, the #bookbuyingdiet
The Big Kahuna - I need to finish the last two books in the Fox & O'Hare series #FinishTheSeries
Rabbits - I've heard good and bad things about this, but it sounds like a real mind f@ck, and I like those kind of books.
The Misfit Soldier - A new author for me, but it's a standalone novel which is a plus.
What is even wrong with me? I just cannot turn down a hold I‘ve been waiting on for forever.
Today was a beautiful sunny day, so of course a trip to the used book store was in order, I had several books to give them, saved up over quarantine and winter. With this book haul it's time to start another #bookbuyingdiet round. No more books until I read 10 off my TBR shelves.
My first official bookhaul of 2022, courtesy of MySciFiClub. Both December and January's box came on the same day, so more books for me!! Soon it will be time for another #bookbuyingdiet to slim out the shelves, but I'll save that for February.
Interesting article on downsizing, especially your books!
Popped into Goodwill this evening, and found these three goodies. Coincidentally, I almost bought On Target earlier in the day at BAM, but decided to wait. I guess the book gods wanted me to have it for a buck instead of paying 9.99 😁😁
I love this!!
Finally! I'm so impatient. #botm
Here is my #bookspin and #doublespin for August. My bookspin has been on the list since April last year when I first joined. I'm looking forward to these reads as usual. If it wasn't for this game, these books would have probably sat unread for years.
I got asked if I get book shamed often 🤷🏻♀️😝
Um 😅 I read what I want …
I do find people get seriously upset when you don‘t like a book they loved, but again 🤷🏻♀️ not my problem.
FYI she asked because I read so much classic literature and Shakespeare and “no popular” titles… whatever that means.
Does this happen to you?
Pic of a stack of my old books I love..
This is my last #bookhaul before I start another round of my #bookbuyingdiet. Science fiction and fantasy is usually my genres of choice, but lately I've found myself drawn more to crime thrillers and murder mysteries.
It‘s an absolutely beautiful day here today so we took a drive to the water, where there‘s a little volunteer-run bookshop. Voilà my book haul for a grand total of 7$ ? I dropped off four bags of books so I feel it was well deserved ?
Believe it or not, this is my first book haul of 2021. I've been on a #bookbuyingdiet since January, and I finished the 10th book last night. I took 10 books off my TBR mountain, and only added back 4, so that's some small progress 🤣🤣
Saw this on facebook & thought I‘d share! Happy #WorldBookDay!
Thanks for the tag @Crazeedi . 🤗
Hardback (or the larger paperbacks)
Hate to say it but probably ebook for portability.
TBR (or NetGalley ARCs with review deadlines)
I like both in the same book! But romance probably edges action.
Both, but majority at night
Anyone else like to share? 😊
I was not expecting my package from discoverbooks.com until Monday, so I was pleasantly surprised to find it waiting on my doorstep when I came home tonight.
Now I can start my next round of #bookbuyingdiet . I will read 10 books off my TBR shelves before I can buy a new one. I don't count ebooks from Libby or audiobooks, just physical books.
I totally forgot to post my Christmas books. My family spoiled me rotten. 😍
On a cold gloomy day, I can't think of a better place than the warm, cozy, inviting confines of the local used book store. Starting the new year, I'm definitely going to need another #bookbuyingdiet , but until then, like all other diets during the holidays, they're temporarily suspended.

Great children‘s book about the various books in the British library system! The last relevant page has descriptions of the various books found on the previous pages/sections.
Book Haul Part 1
I got my first deliver from a new (to me at least) book site called discoverbooks.com. Good prices, quick delivery and well packaged. My only complaint, little barcode stickers on the front of the books. They came off pretty easily, but still an annoyance.
This #bookhaul from Goodwill makes me very sad. My local store once had a large selection, 10 three-level shelves across the back wall, but now they only have 2 three-level shelves, and those are only half full. I don't know if people aren't donating because of covid, or if the books are being shipped to other locations. Whatever the reason, it's still a sad sight.
