Colleen's New Release and a Library Book Sale

Colleen Gleason's latest Gardella Vampire Chronicles book, Rises the Night, was released on Tuesday. I went out today and bought it! Yeah! She even has a link for a $1 coupon for Borders on her blog, For All the World to See! The reviews are REALLY good, and the eye candy on the cover isn't bad either!! Can't wait to read it!!

Also picked up the new Marilyn Manson CD: Eat Me, Drink Me. It's really good. Very dark and rather goth compared to his other slightly more Rock albums. I'm liking it alot!!

It was also the first day of the Bloomington Public Library Sale, so I popped in. You know me....always looking for a bargain! I came away with a couple of STACKS of books!! You know it's bad when your basket is getting too heavy to carry! I tried to take a couple of shots. Book Porn, as Chris at Stuff As Dreams are Made On, calls it! Here is a highlight of the books I got:

  1. 2 Charlaine Harris books - Grave Sight and Dead as a Doornail
  2. The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
  3. Over Her Dead Body by Kate White
  4. The Mermaid Chair by Sue Monk Kidd
  5. Best of Friends by Cathy Kelly
  6. Deja Dead by Kathy Reichs
  7. Harm None - A Rowan Gant Investigation by M. R. Sellars
  8. Death at Glamis Castle - A Victorian Mystery by Robin Paige
  9. What My Mother Doesn't Know by Sonya Sones
  10. 2 JD Robb Mysteries
  11. The Deep End of the Ocean by Jacqueline Mitchard
  12. Witch Fire by James Clemens
  13. The Palace by Chelsea Quinn Yarbro
  14. The Witch's Grave by Phillip DePoy
  15. The Warlock in Spire of Himself by Christopher Stasheff
  16. Holes by Louis Sachar
  17. Jacob Have I Loved by Katherine Paterson
  18. 5 Debbie Macomber Cedar Cover books (not pictured)
  19. 6 various Red Dress Ink Chick Lit books (not pictured)

All in all, a killer haul. Over 30 books total for under $20! I do HEART cheap book sales!!

Marilyn Manson is geting a divorce and he and his wife are fighting over his colection of dead animals. That's dark.

That is a great haul, Stephanie! Wow! You definitely have some entertaining reading ahead of you.

Lynne said...

Wow! Good buys. Our library sales stink.

You did great. How can you pass up paperbacks for 50 cents apiece, right? (I did the math.)

Don't tell anyone, but I have Manson on my Ipod. My kids think I'm too old to like him and Green Day, but there they are right next to Stevie Wonder and N*SYNC.

That's quite a pile of books! I don't think I have ever been in the library where I live, how aweful is that? They hold book reading groups so I might check it out and see what there selection of books is like. Cheap books are always good :)

Bookfool said...
